PatientsLikeMe launched in 2006 as the world’s first patient network to help people track and share their experiences living with disease. Since then, we’ve helped more than 500,000 members improve their own and others’ outcomes and contribute data for research.
Today we are the definitive source for real world evidence about living with disease. And we’re setting an incredible foundation for the future as we look to combine new data and AI that will deepen the world’s understanding of the medical, behavioral and environmental factors that can either accelerate disease or optimize health.
We help people come together to share information and change lives. The more people who know who we are, what we do, and what our virtual community can do for them, the bigger impact we’ll have. That’s where you come in.
