Your Health Professional Profile
Encouraging your patients or community to join Kinnected spurs them to take charge of their own health, increase their engagement and share solutions with other members, worldwide, and work with their friends and families to co-manage care coordination.
Your profile is designed to be a universal landing spot that will stay current and locatable by clients old and new, throughout career and life changes. You can edit your profile, including location, any time.
Sign in to your Kinnected account and go to your Health Professional Profile under the Login menu. You can access your profile and edit from there. You can also access your Health Professional Profile from your Dashboard.
Interacting with Members and Other Health Professionals
When members search on any word, phrase or condition, they will see any Kinnected health professional who lists it in any part of their profile.
Your profile will appear on the search page, and the Global Health Directory page. If you interact as a member, that member will also be able to view your professional profile.
Professional profiles are public and are visible via search engines to both non-members and members of Kinnected. If you choose to make your personal member profile visible, it will only appear to other members of Kinnected.
You can choose to complete a member profile, or not. You can also choose to keep it private. This feature is available to you, but it’s not required that you use the member tools or share your member profile with other Kinnected members. However, we want it to be available to you at any time, should you decide to use the member tool to explore your own health needs and issues. Both your profile and your member profile are easily accessed through your dashboard.
You do not. You can leave your member profile dormant unless you feel like using it.
Yes. Whenever you interact with other members, an orange dot will appear next to your member name, indicating that you’re a health professional. If you choose to share your member profile with other members, a link will be visible from your member profile that will allow them to access your professional profile.
Remember that when you’re having a conversation with another member, you are participating on equal terms as community members, not as a medical practitioner and patient. If you give any advice to another member within these confines, you hold responsibility for the outcome. This is to ensure that you can remain anonymous if you wish, and participate in conversations without disclosing any personal information.
Direct them towards your professional profile and let them know if you are accepting new patients and ask them to contact you off of Kinnected. Your professional identity and personal Kinnected profile will not be linked unless you choose to share that information with another member.
Based on the three discussion topics that you list on your profile, other health professionals can be matched intuitively, or intentionally with you from anywhere in the world. We encourage you to introduce yourself, talk about your day, and find out what you have in common.
Think of this map as a referral system. You should suggest health professionals that you know personally and share a similar health outlook with. If a member is matched with you, but not in your area, they’ll look down at your trusted practitioner map to see if there’s anyone near them that you’d recommend.
You can delete your professional profile at any time, but your membership will not be refunded. Any dues paid to date will benefit the Kinnected community, in helping to develop new self-health tools and functionality.
Pricing and Group Discounts
No. Each profile is specifically designed to highlight a single person, rather than a practice. But if your entire practice, clinic, or company is interested in signing up together, we have packages that offer group rates and more personalized options to highlight your company.
Contact your hospital or PPC and have them get in touch with our Practitioner Director: Stephanie Hillman: firstname.lastname@example.org
We provide a sliding scale fee structure based on income to level the playing field, and allow greater access to the global health care community. What is your practice’s gross annual income?

For group discounts of two or more practitioners, please contact email@example.com.
Kinnected as an Employee Wellness Program
Your organization can be at the forefront of reducing isolation by inviting your employees and colleagues to become part of Kinnected’s healthy, inclusive community. Your colleagues and peers can match on common topics with other health professionals from around the world to inform their clinical practice, share stories, and reinforce their purpose of caring for others.
Kinnected can offer your colleagues and employees a global gathering place to share their individuality via a meaningful narrative. Kinnected helps professionals attract people/patients who are engaged in their own self-health. And by actively becoming part of a healthy community that’s focused on caring and empathy, health professionals can reconnect to their purpose and their path.
