Navigating Healthcare – Patient Safety and Personal Healthcare Management

Patient’s Like Me

Posted in Personal Health Record, Preventative Healthcare by drnic on January 9, 2009

Patient’s Like me is an interesting an excellent concept of shared experiences in true Web 2.0/Social Networking methodology

The Web Site can be reached here and currently offers links for patients suffering from:

  • ALS/Motor Neurone Disease
  • Devic’s NMO
  • Fibromyalgia
  • HIV
  • Mood Conditions
  • MS
  • MSA
  • Parkinsons
  • PSP

There may be those that think this potentially feeds conditions and symptoms (much like medical students often find symptoms and signs of diseases they are studying) but even if this effect is apparent the benefit of shared experiences and learning far outweighs the downside and I believe this is very much the way of the future set of tools to help manage your own personal healthcare
