A good health story as renal treatment gets smart

inverell.yourguide: "RENAL patients requiring dialysis will get better treatment with the introduction of a sophisticated record keeping system.

'Smart Health� records patient information in an on-line database, which means it can be downloaded and upgraded at any site where the patients receive dialysis.

New England Area Health Service deputy administrator Fergus Fizsimons, who launched Smart Health

late last week, assured patients that the highest level of privacy would be maintained.

'This is a first in NSW where patient information is transferred in a sophisticated electronic manner and I congratulate our nephrologist, Dr Stephen May, who leads the NEAHS renal team, for his visionary approach to patient record keeping and retrieval.� Mr Fitzsimons said.

Dr May said demand for renal services was increasing."
