European Startup Awards 2010: Best Social Innovation Startup 2010


Patients Know Best was voted as the best social innovation Startup at the just ended Europas European Startup Awards 2010.

Patients Know Best (PKB) is the first company to integrate into the NHS Connecting for Health network to offer secure tools for patients to work with clinicians.

Patients using the PKB website can send and receive messages securely with their doctors and nurses, for example to ask questions about the use of insulin. They can also send and receive health data. For example, patients sending daily blood sugar results to the specialist nurse can get advice on how to adjust their insulin doses. And access to the medical notes, like the three-monthly HbA1c levels, allows the patient to understand their long-term sugar control.
