Patients Know Best has signed a global partnership agreement with CSC Healthcare to bring its unique patient-controlled portal solution to CSC’s range of market-leading products and services.
PKB’s partnership with CSC Healthcare – a global leader in providing technology-enabled business solutions – will mean that CSC customers can now access PKB’s revolutionary ‘untethered’ patient portal which provides patient access to records beyond the boundaries of a single organisation.
Dr Mohammad Al-Ubaydli, founder and CEO of PKB said:
PKB’s partnership with CSC brings patient control to millions of patients’ records. Unlike patient portals tied to the electronic health record, CSC’s approach with PKB is truly patient-centred so a patient can see their data from all of health and social care, starting with data from CSC customers. Clinicians will get tight integration with the CSC medical records systems they use every day while patients get to understand these records and manage their health.
Philippe Houssiau, CSC’s VP for healthcare in the UK added:
We intend to provide ways of opening up the rich clinical data that exists within our EPR systems so that patients can access – and even take ownership of – their personal data. Working with PKB will enable us to make that patient data more meaningful and in turn improve patient care. CSC is a gold standard electronic patient record provider and PKB is the gold standard patient portal provider so together we can provide both clinicians and patients with a best of breed solution.
