NRAS is delighted to be partnering with Patients Know Best (PKB) in an exciting new patient-centred venture to create a ‘patient portal,’ which will lead to better care and greater support for all those with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
Powered by Patients Know Best – the world’s only fully patient-controlled medical records system – the new NRAS digital portal will provide RA patients with a facility to gain support and ensure their full medical records are in one easy-to-access location.
The complex nature of rheumatoid arthritis means that patients are often treated by multiple health professionals and teams in different locations – this can result in fragmented care. The new portal will enable RA patients to join up the medical and third sector support – ensuring that everyone has a single, current version of a patient’s medical record and care plan.
