PATIENTS KNOW BEST INTEGRATES WITH UMOTIF TO GIVE A PATIENT-POWERED BOOST TO HEALTHCARE MANAGEMENT

Patients Know Best, the world’s only fully patient-controlled online medical records system is partnering with medical self-management app platform uMotif to give patients greater control of their healthcare management – whilst improving clinical efficiency.

uMotif enables patients to track, record and capture the progress of their condition on their device and then share their health data with a doctor at their next appointment – ensuring everyone is more informed and clinical time is better spent.

Patients Know Best’s partnership with the app platform will ensure that medical data recorded though uMotif can now be shared with an individual’s full medical history – giving the clinician a far richer view of a patient’s medical profile.

Dr Mohammad Al-Ubaydli, founder and CEO of Patients Know Best said:

“uMotif’s software is scientifically validated, and beautiful to boot. Their tools are great for patients to collect data and professionals to understand the data. Integrating with PKB makes uMotif’s data securely available to all the clinicians looking after the patient, and part of all the other data these professionals have about the patient.”

Bruce Hellman, founder and CEO of uMotif said:

“When you have a long term condition you might see your doctor very infrequently – so when you meet for your 10 minute check up, it’s very difficult for the clinician to make decisions that will help the patient manage their condition. However, we believe that empowering the patient to track and capture their own health data between appointments can lead to more fruitful doctor-patient relationships. We’re delighted to be partnering with Patients Know Best to enable that data to be put to even better use for the patient.”
