Data Drive Decisions – CureTogether

CureTogether was started as an experiment in data-sharing. Now hosting up to 380 health conditions, CureTogether’s main demographic are consumers trying to find help for depression. Called the “yelp for help”, consumers can share experiences and solutions that worked for them.

CureTogether – An Online Forum for Finding a Cure

Chris Hogg, Advisor, CureTogether

CureTogether has become a media darling by using the power of the crowd to identify symptoms, treatments and side effects of multiple conditions. We won’t ask Chris to explain why masturbation is better for insomnia than some prescription medications, as his employers in his dayjob in pharma might get uncomfortable! But that’s the kind of analysis CureTogether’s members generate for over 590 conditions. Here Chris demonstrates how this online community works to help patients have discussions about chronic pain and cures.
