We all have different levels of knowledge, skills and confidence to manage our own health. That’s why we use PAM (patient activation measure) which is a clinically proven scoring system that helps us identify if you need more or less targeted health information. Because the more we educate ourselves about health, the less likely we are to suffer from long-term diseases.

Rest assured, your data is secure with NowPatient. We use ultra-strong encryption (AES-256) and follow strict security protocols like ISO 27001, HIPAA, DTAC, and Cyber Essentials Plus standards. We also add extra security to your account by insisting you use two-factor (2FA) authentication.
