Kidney alerts pilot begins

16th January 2012

A system is being piloted by Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust in the hope that it could make improvements in detecting and preventing acute kidney injury.

The trust is working with the provider iSoft on the pilot of the e-AKI system. Pathology IT manager, Trevor Hine, told eHealth Insider the system had to be very "fast and efficient" and added "it’s quite a difficult thing for a system to pick up because we are looking for the lowest value over 90 days. We find that and then we look at the current value and determine whether or not they have a kidney problem."

I heard lately that in Romania the medical tourism is flourishing and that now they do lithotripsy procedure for kidney stones removal, without surgery. Is much more cheaper and you dont have to wait like in UK ....
