Why PatientsLikeMe?

The healthcare system isn't doing enough for patients, but you can help change that. PatientsLikeMe is leading the social medicine space by allowing people to: share their health data, track their progress, help others, and change medicine for good. Each time someone shares their experience, they're helping the next person diagnosed learn what could really work for them, and helping researchers shorten the path to new treatments. We're passionate about improving the lives of patients, improving the healthcare system, working on hard technical problems and doing all of this with teamwork. If you want to work with great people in an R&D organization on an initiative that matters, we want to talk to you. Come make a difference in patients' lives with us!
