The University Hospital Virgen Macarena of Seville and the Superior Engineering School of Seville University are jointly carrying out a new research project for the implementation of a complete telecare system for kidney patients. The research project is named 'e-Nefro - Arquitectura modular adaptable para la teleasistencia integral de paciente renales' (Modular customisable architecture for complete kidney patient telecare', in English). The research partners will study the implementation of a telemedicine system for the monitoring of pre-dialysis patients or patients under substitutive treatment (peritoneal dialysis), with the aim of improving their quality of life and healthcare. The project is funded by the Health Institute Carlos III, a public research institute attached to the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, and it will run for three years.
