I’m the Marketing Director for Home Dialysis Plus (HD+), a company that is developing a new compact home hemo system. I’ve been following posts here since I was first introduced to Dori late last year - what a fabulous resource this place is! I’ve contacted a couple of HDC folks directly, but wanted to make an open request to the community… would any of you be interested in talking directly with me about your home treatment routine and the types of things that YOU would like to see in a home system?
Our hope is to move beyond basic usability and create an ultra patient-friendly unit. One of my roles with the company is to learn what “patient-friendly” TRULY means. Instead of moving forward with what we THINK it means, I’m pursuing input from people that have undeniable firsthand knowledge. I believe you and your care helpers are THE voice to listen to when it comes to creating a system that patients will choose to use.
If you have an opinion and a willingness to share some of your personal health history, please email me & I will arrange to call at a time that is most convenient for you.
Thanks! And thanks for letting me jump in to ask these questions. As we begin to make design decisions on the patient interface and usability of the HD+ system, I hope to offer as much of your input as possible.
