Patients Know Best (PKB) helps clinical teams of all specialities deliver care to their patients, with the use of secure messaging, care plans, a library of content and consultations. Giving patients the ability to view their health care data in their own Personal Health Records and the ability to message their team.
Within this section, PKB will share how teams are using PKB in different disease areas and the workflows mapped and used to support the patient and clinical pathways.
For support in creating a new patient pathway, please contact your Success PM.
