Patients Know Best is your pass into the future of healthcare for patients. It’s a world where healthcare works around you. With your PKB account, you’ll have access to your health record and can expect to be listened to, involved in decisions, get explanations about your care, and be treated as a person with individual needs, not just another number amongst hundreds of patient records.

As the company founded for patients - to empower you to take back control of your health, we work on your behalf to share medical information between your healthcare providers and also with you. This helps everyone looking after you to understand the type of care and support you need (and want!) but it also means you can better manage your health and understand what’s going on by monitoring your condition, sharing information with doctors from the comfort of your own home, and getting help quickly when needed.

Connect wearable devices

Connect data from wearable devices such as Fitbits or glucometers and share this with healthcare teams from the comfort of your own home, in real-time.

Live better knowing the people caring for you have the information they need to look after you:

Track your health

Share your record

Keep everyone in the loop. No longer repeat your story to every healthcare professional. Instantly share your record including any test results and care plans with your GP, consultant, at-home care provider, pharmacist, paramedic, carer and next of kin. You can also control what information they see with granular privacy and consent settings. And, because you own this data, you can access it wherever you go (at home or abroad) for real peace of mind.

Did you know we can’t see or access your data? To protect the privacy and security of your data, we encrypt (or code) and then process all data according to NHS guidelines. Only your healthcare team and the people you choose can see this information. You can also see a record of all data they have accessed. Learn more about this in our Privacy Policy [link to Privacy Policy.
