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!
