PatientsLikeMe (PLM) is a for-profit company on a mission to redefine healthcare around the patient experience. Our revenue is generated through the following business activities:
1) Patients support programs where PLM works with health plans and other payors to develop peer networks to augment the treatment protocol for a particular condition. Through these communities, PLM can help payors improve health outcomes for their members through sustained peer support and education that has been demonstrated to increase engagement and adherence in managing their conditions.
2) Research collaborations that use real-world evidence gathered by PatientsLikeMe to learn more about patients' unmet needs and work to improve the lives of patients.
3) Clinical trial support that includes:
helping clinical trial sponsors recruit patients who meet eligibility requirements.
helping sponsors optimize trial design and design support mechanisms based on feedback from PLM Members.
using PLM to support decentralized or virtual clinical trials through remote data gathering and outcomes monitoring.
using PatientsLikeMe real-world evidence to act as the control (comparison) group of a study.
