As Health Systems Struggle with Capacity, One Startup Enables Patients and Caregivers to Find and Advise Each Other
SEATTLE and WILLIAMSBURG, Mass., May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — As the COVID-19 pandemic limits access to regular medical facilities and professionals, Healthenly.org has launched to provide a free space for peer-to-peer health guidance and knowledge-sharing. The platform enables people with experience as patients or caregivers to contribute their knowledge to health conversations across a diverse set of acute and chronic diseases and wellness topics.
Healthenly members can ask and answer questions, vote on content to make the highest-quality contributions rise to the top, and build reputation through participation and positive contributions to the community. The platform allows contributors to become Healthangels, serving as beacons for specific diseases or medical situations.
