Health Samurai, a leading FHIR platform provider, is proud to announce a strategic partnership with Patients Know Best (PKB), a UK-based social enterprise and innovative Personal Health Record (PHR) platform. This collaboration will enhance interoperability and empower patients to take control of their health.

Founded in 2008, Patients Know Best has been a pioneer in the PHR space, with over 15 years of experience and more than 17 million patient records shared across the UK. PKB's platform allows patients to access and input health information, communicate with healthcare professionals, and share their records with family and carers, all in a secure and privacy-focused manner. Patients Know Best is a digital health company that provides a patient-controlled medical records system. 

PKB is reshaping the world's first-of-its-kind patient-controlled records system to enhance patient experience and accessibility to NHS services. By leveraging the power of the Aidbox FHIR server and the Aidbox Form Builder Module, PKB empowers individuals to take control of their health information, fostering a patient-centric healthcare environment. This integration of Aidbox tools streamlines data management and represents a significant stride toward a more interconnected and efficient healthcare ecosystem.

By integrating Aidbox, Health Samurai's FHIR-based solution, Patients Know Best makes it easier for developers to build apps on the PKB platform. More patients will have more data more quickly, and clinicians will deliver better care more safely.
