DEERFIELD -- Baxter International Inc. Wednesday said it is launching an updated digital module and patient management platform for home dialysis patients.

The company's SharesourceAnalytics 1.0 premium module provides health care professionals with a comprehensive dashboard containing simplified trend data from their home dialysis patients' treatments, Baxter said.

Baxter said it plans on launching SharesourceAnalytics 1.0 globally, initially in the United States, on a rolling basis over the next year and making it available by subscription.

"Sharesource remote patient management platform has played a significant role through the COVID-19 pandemic in allowing patients with kidney failure -- who often have immune dysfunction -- to do their dialysis at home, where they can remain safer by socially distancing," said Dr. Peter Rutherford, senior medical director, Baxter Renal Care business.

The updated SharesourceAnalytics 1.0 delivers intuitive and clinically meaningful data that may be used to identify potentially slow-building issues over the patient's last 180 days of therapy, the company said.
