Patients Know Best

Essential solution

As a social enterprise, Patients Know Best (PKB) developed the world’s first patient-controlled medical records platform which is now recognised as a leading Shared Care Record and Patient Held Record/Personal Health Record (PHR).

The system connects health and care information from a number of primary and secondary care providers to create a single, unified copy of patient data. Patients can access their data via an online patient portal and use this to self-manage their health and wellbeing. Healthcare professionals can access the same data via an integrated care record to help inform clinical decision making, manage patient care more effectively and promote independence.
