PatientsLikeMe is proud to be at the forefront of the Health 2.0 movement. What’s Health 2.0 you ask? It’s all about revolutionizing healthcare through new, web-based tools, search functionality and communities. As a result, patients are able to communicate and exchange information in ways they never could before.
No wonder Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya, organizers of the annual Health 2.0 Conference, list PatientsLikeMe as one of the five most exciting Health 2.0 companies. In a recent interview for the eDrugSearch.com Blog, Matthew said, “[PatientsLikeMe is] the best example of a combination of a really useful community and tools making a significant difference in the lives of people with serious debilitating diseases. You can literally drill down and see people in exactly your situation, on your drugs, and see what did or did not work for them.”
We’re delighted by this recognition, which only bolsters our determination to open the healthcare system further. We know the powerful benefits of sharing treatment and outcome experiences – and pretty soon, the healthcare industry will too!
