DAWN: A new era in software
You may notice that the newsletter has a new look this month. This is part of a project to update 4S DAWN's materials to ensure a strong, consistent look across all of our product ranges and communications.

As part of the project, we are developing a new website that will provide a clear, easy-to-use site with a wealth of up-to-date resources including product information, demonstration videos, customer training sessions, case studies and much more.



Look out for emails coming soon detailing the new website launch date.

Track hospital admissions for your patients
If you need to know when your patients become in-patients, your DAWN database may be linked to your hospital system with an additional interface. You can then regularly check the list of current admissions.



Please contact the 4S DAWN team at sales@4s-dawn.com for more information.

Use DAWN RH for best practice tariff reporting
DAWN Rheumatology has clear and traceable records for patient referral and therapy dates. Should you be reporting on newly referred patients, DAWN RH software will help you to keep the important information safe, consistent and easily found.




Did you know.....

CRP level and heart history affect RA response to Tocilizumab
Younger RA patients with high baseline C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and no history of cardiovascular disease respond better to Tocilizumab (TCZ), a retrospective French study suggests.

ACR Conference News: Many rheumatologists reluctant to address hypertension
Fewer than 1 in 3 rheumatologists report discussing hypertension with patients who have uncontrolled blood pressure, despite the fact that those with rheumatoid arthritis are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease compared with the general population and that hypertension is a modifiable risk.

The effect of oily fish on RA
A study in Sweden recently published online in the Annals of Rheumatic Diseases has claimed that a weekly portion of fatty fish, such as salmon, or four servings of lean fish, such as cod, can reduce the risk of developing RA.
