Sites Live March 2016!

We are excited to announce the following sites that are now active this March!

Brighton and Sussex University Hospital (BSUH) now has two teams actively using PKB*. The newest team to go live is using PKB to track symptoms of prostate and colorectal cancer patients for late effects of their cancer treatment. Supporting 100 patients through PKB, the team will be able to monitor and ask questions about the results of their treatments. For patients that meet the criteria, the team will enroll them in the Eagle study to investigate ways of improving the wellbeing of these patients.

Elm Hall Nursing Home and Moyglare Nursing Home are the second and third nursing homes to go live with PKB as part of our Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF) pilot whose initiative called Think Ahead is guiding members of the public in discussing and recording their preferences in the event of serious illness or death. There are six nursing homes within Kildare in the process of going live with PKB before the IHF completes testing with the general public in summer of 2016.

Ryall Park Medical Practice are using PKB with their Health Coaches team. The team looks after a variety of patients from newly diagnosed to those with chronic illnesses and complex needs. The key idea for giving their patients PKB medical records is so that patients can have ownership of their records which will help them self-manage their conditions and reduce acute hospital admissions. Patients meet with their health coach to develop a care plan which will be reviewed at their next appointment. This is part of the larger Symphony project in Yeovil District Hospital.
