What we do:
We build connections in the patient community worldwide. Chronic diseases pose a large socioeconomic burden on our society and the time to stop the progression of these diseases is now.
How do we do it:
Improving the quality of life of patients is critical in helping them manage their disease(s) better and avoiding the co-morbidities from occurring. By addressing the underlying factors of alienation, depression, and loneliness, we achieve better outcomes and improved quality of life for patients.
Why do we exist:
Significant research is being done to find cures and vaccines for these diseases. However, almost 80% of all healthcare spending is used in managing these chronic disease patients. Our objective is to provide a low cost solution to managing the quality of life for these patients, in effect, making them more adherent, better informed and healthier overall.
