LVR-Klinikum Essen Clin­ics and Insti­tute of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Duisburg-Essen

The LVR-Klinikum Essen is a psy­chi­atric, psy­chother­a­peu­tic and psy­cho-somat­ic spe­cial­ist clin­ic of the Land­schaftsver­band Rheinland.

As part of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Duis­burg-Essen, the LVR Clin­ic Essen not only has a care man­date, but is also active­ly involved in research and teach­ing. Cen­tral­ly locat­ed in the city of Essen, we have been treat­ing adults, chil­dren and ado­les­cents with men­tal ill­ness­es since 1974.

Our goal is to sup­port peo­ple seek­ing help in a dif­fi­cult phase of their lives, to pro­vide them with com­pre­hen­sive advice and com­pe­tent assis­tance. To this end, we set the high­est stan­dards for our diag­nos­tics and ther­a­py as well as the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of our staff.

Patients Know Best

Patients Know Best, or “PKB,” is a social enter­prise and tech­nol­o­gy plat­form designed to bring togeth­er patient data from health and social ser­vice providers, as well as the patient’s own data, into a secure per­son­al health record.
PKB is Europe’s largest per­son­al health record plat­form, enabling patients and health­care pro­fes­sion­als to access real-time health infor­ma­tion — any­time, anywhere.

As the world’s first patient-con­trolled per­son­al health records sys­tem, PKB facil­i­tates bor­der­less, inte­grat­ed care wher­ev­er the patient needs it, empow­er­ing patients to take an active role in their health and well-being. Every­thing from test results, care plans, real-time mon­i­tor­ing data, and dis­charge sum­maries, to the patient’s own data — either uploaded from their jour­nal, wear­able devices, or using symp­tom track­ing, are all avail­able in one patient record. This also reduces the need for pro­fes­sion­als to request back­ground infor­ma­tion from the patient’s reg­u­lar health­care team.
