Adding a Parent or Guardian
Organisations can give carers access to a patient’s record on behalf of the patient. This helps look after the patient, and the added support from carers, can increase appointment attendance, medication compliance and patient engagement. For children, giving the parents or guardians correct carer access is critical for the health of the child.
To add a carer, the carer must first register as a patient in PKB. Then the organisation must check what permission they ought to have access to in the patient’s record e.g. what the patient has explicitly asked for (if the patient had capacity) or who the appropriate parent is (if the child’s parents are separated). The professional or coordinator can then give the registered user ‘carer access’ to the patient’s record.
