PatientView develops and deploys tools that help patients and other healthcare stakeholders to engage better with each other.
Tools that improve patient self-awareness and care
(for instance, the PatientView report on Health Apps)
Although patients can draw on a mass of healthcare information in the public domain, such information is rarely delivered to patients at the right time, when they need it — particularly to the numerous patients who require support around the clock. Health apps are one source of information that patients can use as and when they need it. But how can patients, or anyone else, know which health apps are best from among the confusingly large array of health apps? To answer this question, PatientView surveyed 100 patient organizations with a knowledge of health apps. The advice from these groups was assembled into a PatientView Plus report, What do Patients Think of Health Apps?, listing many of the world's best, most patient-friendly health apps.

Helping industry to develop a better understanding of the patient movement, and how companies can work alongside its members
(For instance, the PatientView report on HTA commissioned by Hill & Knowlton)
PatientView has worked with a number of healthcare companies (including Eucomed, Johnson & Johnson, MSD, Novartis, and NovoNordisk) to promote a different corporate vista of the world of patient organizations, looking at questions such as:
— How to be patient centric?
— What are the important issues to consider when working with patient groups?
— What do patient groups think about health technology assessment (HTA), and what are their
commonalities of experience with pharma and medical device companies?
Who has the Say in Health Technology Assessment? is a 79-page August 2010 report by PatientView commissioned by leading healthcare communications agency, Hill & Knowlton. The report aims to analyse the perceptions and opinions of patients and other key stakeholders to the subject of health technology assessment (HTA).
