It’s really important that you take a part in your health information tracking. Don’t just take the lab results you’re getting from the provider and toss them aside. Keeping track of the data will help you maintain control of the levels that are out of bounds and help you stay as healthy as possible.
06/20/13: I found that the American Association of Kidney Patients has a siliar website available to help you track you health information including Doctor Visits, Medications, and Lab Results. Its open to all patients. Membership in AAKP is free for patients. You can access this portal by CLICKING HERE
Davita has a Health Portal for its patients that provides almost everything you want or need to know about you dialysis treatments and lab results. I found it particularly helpful in seeing my Phosphorus and Potassium levels that are really a bear for me to control. You can also access your health records, insurance information and assistance, the Davita Care Team (Dialysis Center) contact information. a host of patient services like travel planning. home dialysis information, diet planning, etc.
Unfortunately this is only available for Davita patients but it could be a model for other providers if they don’t have something like this already. You can read more about it or access (or sign up for) the Davita Health Portal by CLICKING HERE.
