Patient’s personal health profile, such as daily records of illness, associated symptoms, administered medication and IoT data can be entered and managed altogether in profile section. Under patients’ permission, this data can be utilized for researches and clinical studies, ultimately bringing better chances for recovery.
Health records shared by patients, currently scattered around different patient communities focused on certain diseases, can be browsed in a single platform. The rarer disease it is, the less information is available. In this respect, every little piece of information is valuable and can be a great help.
When it comes to incurable or rare diseases, relatively small amount of patient data can be still useful for pharmaceutical companies and clinical studies institutes to gather target patients and conduct researches. For example, in 2011, there was a case which existing medical research paper was refuted by 149 ASL patients’ data.
