I didn't learn a single thing, not one single thing, from this article.  What the hell is this "device"?  I guess it's a state secret.

The press release

Itís a bit worrisome how the pharmacy (CVS) merged with my insurance administrator (Aetna) and is now becoming a healthcare provider. But itís good the are trying to innovate.

Is it a PD device. I have a hard time reading stories closely these days.

iolaire, the Bloomberg article specifically mentions HHD, the CVS article calls it HemoCare Hemodialysis system, but the FDA info you posted specifically lists PD systems, so I'm even more confused.

I wonder if any thought is being put into how to make self cannulation easier because that's a big obstacle to home hemo.
