What is CrowdHealing ?

CrowdHealing is collaborative patient centered care

Weheal uses proven social networking concepts to pioneer a revolutionary CrowdHealing platform, bringing patients, professionals and advocates together in collaborative “think-tank” environments to

  • facilitate discussion and sharing
  • Resolve issues facing specific patient communities
  • Collect and share relevant data with communities enabling educated and informed treatment decisions

Crowdhealing is for everyone. Every human being is confronted with a medical issue at some point in their life.

  • Approximately 40% of people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime
  • More than 50% of Americans have a chronic health problem
  • Approximately 80% of patients use the internet to research their disease
