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

As a member, you have lots of opportunity to donate your data for good. Here’s what you can do today:

  • Share your experience with symptoms and treatments. Or simply tell us how you’re feeling. Everything you share helps researchers understand more about what patients are experiencing every day.
  • Chart the side effects of your medications, and help researchers at the FDA get better insights into drug safety.
  • Tell us about your thoughts and perceptions of clinical trials, and see what others think. Join the conversation in the forum.

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.
