Patient Networks

Patients Like Me   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.”

The site sells information you share (minus your restricted personal data) to various companies in the health care industry, which is described here.

 

CureTogether‘s “about” page says “imagine patients around the world coming together to share quantitative information on over 500 medical conditions. They talk about sensitive symptoms and compare which treatments work best for them. They track their health. New research discoveries are made based on the patient-contributed data. This is happening at CureTogether, and we believe it can have a massive global impact.  CureTogether is a social business, currently funded by its founders and angel investment, and has partnered with several universities and research organizations.”

 

Wegohealth “is a different kind of social media company – our mission is to empower the top 10% of online health social media contributors to connect with each other and with healthcare companies. We call these passionate people Health Activists – they’re community leaders, bloggers, on Facebook, on Twitter, leading online forums, and usually “all of the above.”

This site is also funded by the health care industry.
