Therapy Data Management System (TDMS)


Effective data management systems are becoming increasingly important in dialysis due to the growing number of patients and the rising requirements for documenting patient data. Manual management of these data is not ideal as it involves a great deal of administrative work and ties up valuable resources.

Fresenius Medical Care offers a complete haemodialysis product and service portfolio that includes integrated information technology solutions. TDMS, which includes a combination of hardware and software components, provides a seamless connection between dialysis and information technology. It prepares and presets the dialysis devices prior to therapy and then accurately records vital information as follows:

  • The patient's weight before and after dialysis 

  • Details of the treatment process 

  • Additional laboratory tests performed during dialysis 

  • Medication doses 

  • Events during dialysis

  • Predefined workflows (in checklist format) 

  • Changes in treatment processes 

  • Changes in consumables

TDMS enables the therapy manager to:

  • Create and edit dialysis treatment prescriptions

  • Create and edit medication prescriptions

  • Maintain and interpret laboratory data 

  • Generate reports

Additional modules also provide the following services: 

  • Communication with higher hospital information systems (HIS) 

  • Provision of data to external quality management systems

  • Flexible Crystal reports that can be exported to MS Excel. Charting of data is also possible in this powerful reporting function

For ease of use, the 4008S Next Generation haemodialysis machine and the 5008/5008S therapy system combined with TDMS have been designed to be compatible with a variety of external medical devices such as scales and analysers. The modular design of the system also allows for a variety of options and combinations with other information technology systems. 

The clinical data management software (Therapy Manager)

Therapy Manager is the software that communicates directly with the therapy monitor. It manages and documents the treatment information online and then makes it available when needed. Therapy Manager provides a quick overview of important laboratory results and other patient-related data and can communicate these data directly with hospital information systems (HIS).

The monitoring software (Therapy Monitor)

Therapy Monitor is the CE certified software that provides:

  • Identification via Patient Card
  • Ultrafiltration check against prescription
  • Download of standard dialysis parameters from the machines:
    1. Data from other specific modules (BPM, BTM, BVM, OCM, HDF)
    2. Data from other medical devices e.g. scales
  • Remote monitoring of satellite units
  • Bedside monitoring (with 5008 data Xchange panel)

Data Xchange Panel features

The Data Xchange panel has established a complete new form of bedside monitoring with bi-directional use of the 5008 therapy system which includes weight and ultrafiltration (UF) management, sending messages, free configurable task list, documentation of given medications and consumables, and documentation of events.dataxchange2
