As of 20 July 2017, a new Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) module linked to an also-new Renal eReferral is available for use in BOP DHB. The CKD module has local referral thresholds and criteria embedded within the module. Therefore the module will automatically indicate whether your patient meets the threshold for renal referral within BOP DHB.
This change allows those practices with Medtech32 and Evolution, who access the BPAC National Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) module, to create structured referrals from within the module and send them via eReferral.
When using the BPAC CKD module (accessible from the BPAC main menu and patient prompt) and your patient meets the threshold for referral, clicking on the ‘Refer patient to Renal’ will automatically open your eReferral system and create a structured referral with all details, reason for referral and nephrology details prepopulated.
