Sharing symptoms

Patients Like Me: Share Disease Treatment and Symptom Information
“The first, almost obvious, feature allows people with a life-changing disease (e.g. ALS, HIV, Parkinson’s, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, MS) to connect to others in the same situation, for instance to learn how they treat their disease or to compare one’s own health progress with those of others. Even more, by sharing their own health profile, patients are empowered to exchange valuable data about the real-world effects of specific medical treatments. In practice, this means anyone can explore a rich collection of crowd-sourced data about individual diseases, symptoms or treatments. […] In what seems a quite revolutionary take on medical privacy, the diseases, treatments and symptoms of individual patients can be filtered, searched and compared. Alternatively, people with a specific symptom, let’s say “fatigued”, can investigate the effectiveness of the most popular treatments or compare their faith with the other 27,000 patients that experience this very symptom. ”
