The buzz about PatientsLikeMe is growing! In August, Business 2.0 magazine and CNN.com recognized PatientsLikeMe as one of 15 companies that will change the world. To be selected, a company must have “the potential to rewrite the rules of existing industries or open up entirely new markets.” We couldn’t agree with this assessment more; after all, we began with that exact mission. But what’s amazing is that we’re already starting to achieve it. Thanks to the participation of thousands of patients like you, we’re well on our way to creating “a fast bypass around restrictive privacy rules that tie scientists in red tape.” As part of the implementation of this sweeping objective, we’re pleased to announce the upcoming launch of our HIV community, which we feel is an important addition to our coverage of life-changing diseases. If you know anyone affected by HIV, please send them an invitation to join PatientsLikeMe.
