The aim of this study was to review our experience with paediatric telenephrology in Queensland, Australia. METHODS: A retrospective audit of paediatric nephrology telehealth consultations to determine the nature of the telehealth activity, reasons for referral to telehealth, and to compare costs and potential savings of the telehealth service...

PURPOSE: A Web-based consultation system (telenephrology) enables family physicians to consult a nephrologist about a patient with chronic kidney disease. Relevant data are exported from the patient's electronic file to a protected digital environment from which advice can be formulated by the nephrologist. The primary purpose of this study was to assess the potential of telenephrology to reduce in-person referrals. METHODS: In an observational, prospective study, we analyzed telenephrology consultations by 28 family practices and 5 nephrology departments in the Netherlands between May 2009 and August 2011...

In this special feature article, we discuss the development of collaborative care models in chronic disease management and the need for such initiatives in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We identify telemedicine as a potential key element to collaborative care in CKD. Telenephrology-as telemedicine would be referred to as it is applied in CKD-would be comprised of various technology platforms and applications, which are described here. We describe a range of scenarios in which telenephrology would facilitate collaborative care in CKD and how it would be the basis for patient-oriented research to assess improvements in outcomes in the future...

UNLABELLED: In 2004, according to socio- demographic criteria and to the improvement in the welfare quality, we incorporated to the portfolio of services of our section a work tool that meant a novel technology; the "telemedicine". The Objective has been to asses the utility of telemedicine in the follow- up of the renal patients, bringing the consultation of nephrology closer to the patient's home as well as the relationship between two welfare levels. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Retrospective and descriptive study of the patients with renal pathology treated in the consultation of telenephrology at our hospital in a period of time of 27 months (November 2004-January 2007)...
