CureTogether Wins Emerging Star of Healthcare Engagement Award


We are very excited to announce that CureTogether has just won the Emerging Star of Healthcare Engagement Award in the 2011 Healthcare Engagement Strategy Awards.

In the award announcement, Director Daniel Ghinn writes:

“In many ways, CureTogether captures the essence of how the Internet is changing healthcare. A startup operating with just 2½ people, born out of one patient’s frustrated search for answers, the social network has grown to include over 22,000 patients with 549 conditions since it started in 2008….

CureTogether is an example that illustrates how healthcare engagement is changing: not only empowering patients to share experiences with each other, but to develop their own evidence base

This kind of crowdsourced approach to medical research will at the very least stimulate some healthy discussion, and has the potential to have a significant impact on the relationships between patients, prescribers and pharmaceutical companies

CureTogether, for applying the power of crowdsourcing to real-time research that touches patients, we award you the Healthcare Engagement Strategy 2011 Emerging Star of Healthcare Engagement Award.”

Thank you to Daniel and all the HES Awards judges! We are much honored.
