“Our brother Stephen was living with ALS and we thought, ‘there has to be a better way.’ There is. By sharing our experiences, we can all contribute new data that can accelerate research and help create better treatments. Our experiences can actually change medicine… for good.”

Members will share their experiences to help researchers better characterize the disease and develop treatment strategies. The collaboration will leverage the Open Research Exchange (ORE), an online hub for developing and sharing new health measures that better reflect patients’ experiences living with and managing disease.
The Center for Assessment Technology and Continuous Health, which is based at MGH and collaborates with various groups at MIT, is focused on discovering news ways to quantitatively measure the human condition in health and disease.
