A national first
The first personal health record (PHR) to integrate with the NHS App – and the first third-party to integrate Single Sign-On (SSO) with the encrypted NHS Login, in partnership with NHS Digital.
This ‘all-in-one’ integration offers what no other PHR can – everything a patient (and their health care team) needs to manage their care – with a single gateway to their circle of care, complete with access to a personal health record.
One application with single sign-on
By harnessing the power of both digital innovation and borderless care, this integration extends the availability of the NHS App’s GP data. Now, registered patients of PKB can sign in to their health record from the NHS App to access their information from other settings too.
Using one login and the same nationally verified credentials, patients can easily access their PKB record no matter where they are with single sign-on.
Security, convenience, usability
Combining best-in-class security with convenience and usability, this integration allows healthcare providers to seamlessly connect patients to the services and information they need, when they need it.
Access complete, real-time data from all settings for improved multi-disciplinary care. This means data from hospital records, social care and mental health services, patient-entered data and device-recorded measurements – all-in-one place!
No borders, no barriers
Patients Know Best is the only borderless PHR in the world. This integration builds on our principles of information sharing by using the ‘NHS front door’ policy to place patients at the centre to enable data to be received and shared between any health or care provider across the UK.
Simple, diverse, sustainable
The PKB user interface inside the NHS App appears in the language set on the smartphone. With 20 languages supported, PKB is the most diverse personal health record in the world.
