[EpiData-list] version trouble

This is an increasing issue (some hospitals not using the most recent version) 

Can you ask them to send me an email or phone number. Then I will call them and ask their reasons, since I would like to know how we can adopt an upgrade policy, which ensures having access to the latest version. 

Write to info (at) epidata.dk and disregard the auto message, I will get the mail. 

Best wishes
