Liver function and iron tests added

On results panel 5 many of you will now be able to see various liver function tests and results for iron and uric acid (which causes gout). This is in place for almost all units that use 'Proton', but if it's not there for your local unit, perhaps your local RPV admin may know whether it should be there soon.

10,500 registrations

We've now passed 10,500 registrations. Sorry we missed the opportunity to offer a prize for the 10,000th user, but maybe we could look you up and ask to publish your photo.
The new results we mentioned a while ago are just beginning to roll out in some units.

Welcome Canterbury and RenalPlus

Canterbury has joined Renal PatientView and today has 2 patients enrolled. Welcome!

RPV is now working in units where their local renal computer system is based on Proton (Vitalpulse adaptation of CCL-Proton), Vitaldata (Vitalpulse), iSoft's Clinical Manager (Guy's and Salford units have adapted this locally), eMed (Mediqal HI), and Canterbury adds the first RenalPlus unit.
We hope that any remaining systems will link soon.

Patients online

Increasingly renal patients are writing online, as well as reading. Some examples highlighted on the UK Renal Association's newspages this week.
Soon we hope to make it possible for RPV patients to communicate with each other, and to add blood pressures and comments to their own records.
Happy New Year!
