Patients Know Best

Innovation Type: Patient Flow


Innovation Origin: NHS Innovator Accelerator (NIA)

Technology platform allowing patients to own a copy of their health and care information enabling true citizen-led care

Patients Know Best (PKB) is a health and care record hosted securely on the NHS HSCN (N3) Network with all data encrypted but accessible on any web-enabled device at any time. A copy of the record is owned by the patient themselves to share with whomever they trust, whenever they receive care.

This single record puts the patient at the centre of their care, empowering the entire health network to share information about a patient with the patient. This allows care coordination, delivery of online digital services, and self-management, whilst ensuring improved clinical outcomes and direct in-year cash savings.
