Sally Rennison Vice President of Sales - Patient Knows Best

As a social enterprise, Patients Know Best (PKB) developed the world’s first patient-controlled medical records platform which is now recognised as a leading Integrated Digital Care Record (IDCR) and Patient Held Record (PHR) designed for borderless sharing of information, both of which can be used independently or in combination. The platform encourages self-management via care management and patient engagement tools. Information can be added via consumer devices, or manually entered. Health and care organisations can then make use of this data, adding it to their own records, designing new pathways and performing analytics to improve the quality and decrease the cost of healthcare.

With 5 years experience in electronic patient records, Sally moved to Patients Know Best to join a more patient centric company. As VP of the Business Development team at PKB she is responsible for business growth and retention across the UK and internationally.
