We are excited to announce the following sites are now active this August!
North Bristol Trust – Hospital at Home – A new initiative that will help facilitate the early discharge of patients from hospital and instead monitor their care using home visits and remote monitoring with Patients Know Best. In particular patients will record their measurements, use secure messaging with their clinical team and be able to send photos as well when necessary.
Cardiff and Vale University Health Board – Adult Audiology Team at the University Hospital of Wales – This deployment aims to improve the current patient pathway by allowing patients to complete questionnaires about their hearing loss (that were usually completed during an appointment) at home, which will in turn reduce waiting times and will also reduce the number of patients that get “lost” within the pathway.
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust – Major Trauma – Trauma specialists in Chelsea and Westminster will see data from all PKB customers including North West London Care Information Exchange. They will make their Major Trauma Patient Care Pathways data available to North West London’s specially commissioned Major Trauma Network. The hospitals in the network are St Mary’s, Chelsea and Westminster, Ealing, Hillingdon, Northwick Park, Watford and West Middlesex. Clinicians will be able to view rehabilitation prescriptions, radiology reports, labs and outpatient appointments for patients who have been repatriated to the trauma unit from St Mary’s.
CMyLife – Chronic Myeloid Leukemia – This deployment starting in UMCRadboud is innovating the care of patients with blood related cancers starting with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML). Due to the success of modern medicine CML is now a long term condition and as such requires a different approach. The long term goal is to move into other areas such as Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) , Multiple Myeloma (MM) and Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) and to roll out to hospitals across the Netherlands.
Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board – Heart Failure Team at Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend – This team in the cardiology department is the first team to go live in ABMU with an integrated deployment of PKB and their patients are among the first in Wales to access their pathology results as a result of a national integration between Patients Know Best and the NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS). Patients will be using PKB to communicate directly with their healthcare team and monitor their symptoms and blood results.
