Provision of home dialysis by freestanding renal dialysis facilities.
Date of Pub
This article explores home dialysis provision among freestanding renal facilities by examining whether they provide continuous
ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD), and home hemodialysis. These modalities
require fewer visits to a dialysis center, which may be beneficial for patients living long distances from facilities. A negative
association was found between the number of facilities per square mile and the probability of provision of the home modalities.
Secondly, facilities with a higher percent of black patients were less likely to provide the home modalities. Thirdly, facilities
with larger numbers of patients were more likely to provide the home modalities.
