At Knowurture we believe the most effective care happens when treating physicians use the best technology and science, yet are still able to maintain the patient relationship and care that makes their practice special. We bridge the gap between the art and science of medicine by employing niche technologies to assist with the decision making and cognitive work of medicine so that your physician can reinvest in the humanistic dimension of care.
"one-size-fits-all" approach has proved to be ineffective in the treatment of many diseases. In standardized care, doctors are less prepared to anticipate their patients' susceptibility to certain diseases and their responses to prescribed treatment. Our endeavour is to personalize the approach, "the right patient with the right drug at the right dose at the right time".
You and your physicians work together to select tests, treatments, management or support packages, based on clinical evidence and your informed preferences. It involves the provision of evidence-based information about options, outcomes and uncertainties, together with decision support counselling and a system for recording and implementing your informed preferences.
