Patients Like Me

patients like me

Discovered a new website, at least to me it seemed new. It is called PatientsLikeMe.com. You can create a profile, rate your mood and level of distress, and an important part is the Forum were you can discuss about anything related to your condition. They even have a part for research, treatment and symptoms. Health professionals and caregivers can participate as well. Found only four patients being treated with ECT. You have to register to be able to use the site. It is easy to use.

PatientsLikeMe is committed to providing a better, more effective way to capture valuable results and share them with patients, healthcare professionals, and industry organizations that are trying to treat the disease.

Am I the first one to discover this or are others familiar with this initiative? Couldn’t find commercial interest or did I miss something, please let me know in the comments.
