I am building Cureous.
What: Cureous is a personalized health network. It helps people discover and connect with others “just like them”.
How: By creating a platform for people with health conditions to discover & connect with others like them, by providing tools to motivate and set goals. Data analytics will power health insights and trends aggregated.
Why: Because dealing with a health condition is a lonely process and patients want to know that they are "Not Alone" in this journey. They also want to contribute towards a cure.
Because health care providers, health cure creators and family/friends of people with a health condition have no clue on what goes on in a patients life after they have left the pharmacy, the hospital, the home....they need the data to influence cure.
And because, today, close to 4B people, globally are diagnosed with serious illness and there aren't any such personalized networks around that address the needs of motivation and social support.
