Dealing with the paper work side of HHD is endlessly tedious. Up until August , for me, it meant writing down the treatment information and then sending it in as soon as possible at the end of the month. The whole process was sub optimal. The unit wouldn't know if I was in the hospital until well after the fact, likewise if there was any hic up in treatment the unit wouldn't know until they received the treatment logs a month later.

Northwest Kidney Centers has finally developed a way for their HHD patients to submit their treatment data electronically, during or after treatment. No more paper records    The linked video shows NKC's Patient portal system in use.

I'm using the laptop for the demonstration but I can do it with my phone, which is what I usually do after I get on treatment. It is about time some one did this - does anyone else have the option to use online electronic data submission?

Huh, I started out faxing them after every treatment, and so many of them got lost, I just ended up handing them in at the end of the month during the clinic appt.   ::)
