As 2013 winds down… Part II

Posted December 30th, 2013 by

PatientsLikeMe Employees Raising Their Hands for Rare Disease Day 2013When we kicked off 2013 back in January, we shared that what inspires everyone at PatientsLikeMe to live better is YOU. We also renewed our promise to continue putting patients first, and a couple days ago we posted on the blog about just some of  the ways the community has continued to change healthcare for good by adding their voices to real-time research and sharing personal health experiences.

 

 

 

 

 

In just this last year, PatientsLikeMe…

There’s even more you can check out in our newsroom too.

Also on the blog…

And last, but not least…

the PatientsLikeMe website got a makeover in November. Haven’t seen it yet? Take a short, one-minute virtual tour with Kim Goodwin, our Vice President of User Experience.

From everyone at PatientsLikeMe, thank you and Happy New Year!


As 2013 winds down… Part I

Posted December 27th, 2013 by

We wanted to take a quick look back and share how the PatientsLikeMe community has continued to change healthcare for good over the last year. Thousands of members added their voices to real-time research, all while providing support to one another and sharing about their personal health experiences. It really is a group effort, so a big shout out and thank you to everyone in the community.

Here are some highlights from 365 days of donating data, sharing experiences and learning more, together…

What were some of the hottest topics in the forums?

Who shared their story on the PatientsLikeMe blog?

More than 8,000 members donated their data to a PatientsLikeMe survey, including…

And close to 5,000 added their voices to our first ever Open Research Exchange questionnaires this year, including…

  • The Treatment Burden Questionnaire
  • The WHY STOP questionnaire on type 2 diabetes
  • A questionnaire on hypertension
  • The Perceived Medical Condition Self-Management Scale

As we move into 2014, we’re more confident than ever that the patient experience – your experience – will not only help everyone learn more about their conditions right now, but continue to change healthcare for good.
