PatientsLikeMe is committed to putting patients first. We do this by providing a better, more effective way for you to share your real-world health experiences in order to help yourself, other patients like you and organizations that focus on your conditions. PatientsLikeMe is a health information sharing website for patients. Only here do patients like you have the opportunity to share both personal stories and health data about your conditions to help uncover great ideas and new knowledge.
By sharing information on our site, you can put your disease experiences in context and find answers to the questions you have. You can:
• know detailed information about every medication, supplement or device used to treat patients like you and learn about what works;
• connect easily with patients that have the same conditions experiencing the same symptoms or using similar treatments; and
• learn from patients like you.
Imagine partnering in real time with doctors, researchers and companies to improve the understanding of your disease and accelerate the development of new treatments? This is what is at the heart of the PatientsLikeMe vision– the kind of information sharing that will impact the lives of patients like you and transform healthcare by putting patients back at the center of the system.
