Data for good

Your data has a heartbeat that gives new life to medical research.

Donate your data for you, for others, for good.

What is data for good?

It’s symptom, treatment and other health data that you choose to share on PatientsLikeMe. All that data helps you track how you’re doing over time, helps the next person diagnosed learn what could work for them, and tells researchers what people really need so they can develop more effective treatments, faster.

What’s new

Over the next 12 months, you’ll have lots of opportunities to donate your data to research. Here’s how your data can do some good today. Together let’s find out:

  • How symptoms and treatments in every disease change over time. Tell us about your experience.
  • How the use of wearable health devices like pedometers, smartphones and activity trackers are helping people like you measure their health.
  • How new measures for health are reflecting patient experiences. Learn about Open Research Exchange.

I feel very excited that the information being used from my situation will contribute to research to help other people. Without that data, the research will not continue to grow.
