Our story

Inspired by their brother Stephen's journey with ALS, Ben and Jamie Heywood, along with their longtime friend Jeff Cole, created PatientsLikeMe as a health data-sharing platform.

PatientsLikeMe is a platform that helps patients improve their outcomes by connecting with and learning from thousands of others just like them. Here patients can share their experience, and in the process they help the next person diagnosed learn what could really work for them and they help researchers shorten the path to new treatments.

Our work helps 500,000+ patients with 2700+ conditions live better, together

We're transforming how patients manage their own condition...

Garth, living with cancer

"It certainly doesn't help me to keep my symptoms or my side effects secret. I feel that I owe other patients my experience. If I donate my data, if I share with an organization that can put it together and see a pattern... I'm helping all of the patients."

We're on a mission, but we have fun, too

PatientsLikeMe takes our culture as seriously as our mission. From multiple team events like fundraising 5ks and volunteer opportunities to book clubs, karaoke nights and of course annual holidays like May the 4th, Pi Day and Thanksgiving potluck we believe the team that works together should celebrate and play together!
