A national integration with data systems in Wales

Patients Know Best and the NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS) has partnered to integrate the PKB platform with national data systems in Wales.


A data milestone for Wales

The Welsh Government part-funded an early demonstrator pilot through its Efficiency Through Technology Fund, in partnership with Swansea Bay University Health Board (formerly Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University) in 2017. This enabled NWIS to secure a national Welsh integration with PKB for data systems. 

The integration was a milestone in the history of the Welsh NHS and also great news for citizens across Wales. It signified the first time patients and healthcare professionals could access health records anywhere, anytime.
