A specialised vehicle carries the dialysis machine, consumables, RO water tank, and an expert technician to the patient’s home
NephroPlus has launched ‘Dialysis on Call’ service in Hyderabad. In Dialysis on Call, a specialised vehicle carries the dialysis machine, consumables, RO water tank, and an expert technician to the patient’s home. After ensuring the pre-requisites, the dialysis is conducted and the vehicle returns to its base location.
The overall process is much more comfortable for the patient as they do not need to travel and can get dialysis within the comfort of their homes. One major advantage of this service over regular home hemodialysis services (which NephroPlus already offers) is that the machine and other equipment do not need to be stationed in the patient’s home.
The process can also help nursing homes and hospitals which do not have dialysis centres for admitted patients who require dialysis. Instead of making these patients travel to another hospital in an ambulance, the Dialysis on Call service team can travel to the hospital/nursing home and conduct the dialysis under the observation of the hospital team.
Patients who wish to avail of this service at their doorstep can call the NephroPlus number (1800120001001) or visit the website.
According to Vikram Vuppala, Founder and CEO, NephroPlus, there are plans to scale this up to five cities including Delhi, Chennai and Bengaluru in the country over the next several weeks.
Kamal D Shah, Co-Founder, and Director, Patient Services of NephroPlus said, "There is no fixed cost associated with the patients as it is pay per session model. We hope with this initiative we would be able to serve more and more needy people on dialysis.”
