This is the subject of the Knight News Challenge, now in its feedback stage and the mission of Intake.Me

Here at Intake.Me, we believe that we should be able to use data and technology to make the health care experience better for patients. We know that we’re past the time when “big data” is something for scientists and policy makers.

Patients and their caregivers are already engaging in using technology as best they can to make their lives easier while coping with chronic disease. It’s technology’s turn to catch up with what patients need.

That’s why we’re running a #patientchat this morning to hear from you:

  1. how do you use health technology (apps, data, devices) to improve your health?
  2. what health technology would you like to see to make your health easier to manage?
  3. how would you like to see your doctors use technology to help manage your health?

And if you are a caregiver or provider for those who are ill, think of all these questions as they apply to how you help those you care about with their health.

Please join us today at 10am PST / 1pm EST, follow the hashtag #patientchat on Twitter or join us at!

P.S. Sign up to join our empowered patient community at http:/ plus be the first to learn about product releases.
