Patientview gives patients access to live test results online, along with info to understand them. We have had it in Edinburgh since 2005. There is also info about your kidney disease, its treatment, and copies of clinic letters about you.
Want to Join? Edinburgh patients can just download the enrolment from the foot of this page, and bring it next time you come to the hospital.
Not from Edinburgh? Ask at your local renal unit, or click on 'I want to join' at the top right at Patientview
PatientView (PV) is available for patients attending the Edinburgh Renal and Transplant units and we strongly encourage patients to use it. It offers online access to live test results, with information to explain the tests, plus links to info on their kidney disease and the treatment they are receiving. Make sure you read the Staff guide or Admin guide (depending which role you have). Other useful info:
- PV website itself
- About PatientView at rixg.org/patientview2 - background info, history, and resources for new units (as well as that staff guide)
- PV on Facebook - news about the RPV project. There is some older info on a PV blog
You can have access to it too, if you have a good reason (for instance, recruiting patients to PV, visiting them at home, on call from home).
