PatientsLikeMe: Patient Value Should Drive Market Value
As Co-Founder, President, and Chief Privacy Officer, Ben Heywood has overseen the tremendous expansion of PatientsLikeMe, a free website where people can share their health data to track their progress, help others, and change medicine for good. In this exclusive podcast, Ben discusses aligning clinical trials with real-world data, and PatientsLikeMe’s new partnership with digital life company iCarbonX. “In an ideal environment, we’d measure what patients care about in the real world and that would be the dominant measure that trials use to measure the effect of drugs,” Ben explains. “That alignment needs to happen.” Learn more about this alignment of clinical and real-world evidence at DIA's EuroMeeting 2017 and DIA’s 2017 Global Annual Meeting.
