PatientsLikeMe attended the inaugural Health 2.0 conference in San Francisco. Congratulations to Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya for putting on a great show. Ben Heywood participated in the Social Media panel along with other great health 2.0 companies, DailyStrength, OrganizedWisdom, Inspire, MedHelp, and Sophia’s Garden. The high quality of each company’s offering ensures that patients will continue to have many destinations to share their health situations, get support, and even answers.
At the end of the social media panel, the 500 conference guests were asked which company they’d choose if they were an e-patient. PatientsLikeMe received 39% of the votes. While we appreciate this high praise from our peers, our mission is to positively effect patient outcomes through our site and to improve healthcare overall. We’re honored to be a part of this movement with other leading companies in the space.
