Social media users say ‘yes’ to sharing health data

Posted January 23rd, 2014 by

There are some new survey results that just came out from the Institute of Medicine’s Evidence Communication Innovation Collaborative (ECIC) that show social media users give the stamp of approval to sharing health data. (A big, public shout out to the more than 2,000 PatientsLikeMe members who participated in the survey.) It’s very exciting to see the voices of so many in the community having such an impact.

Check out the results below and read more about it in the PatientsLikeMe newsroom.

 


Can patients become innovators? Rishi Bhalerao from PatientsLikeMe speaks at TEDx Springfield 2013

Posted December 11th, 2013 by

Rishi Bhalerao, our Program Director of Client Services, recently spoke about patient innovation at the 2013 TEDx conference in Springfield, MA. Rishi talked about how the path to innovation begins right with patients because they are the ones who live with a condition day-in and day-out. Their sharing helps bridge the gap from patient to doctor to provider, and through measuring their own progress, patients can learn from each other and improve their lives together.
