About MEDI+SWARM

 

A place to connect

Learning that you have a disease or even multiple diseases can be a lonely experience. Regardless of whether or not your disease is common, it simply isn’t easy to find and meet others that understand what you are going through. MEDI+SWARM changes this by providing customized disease communities in a unified social health network. You are able to meet and communicate with others that truly understand what you are experiencing.

 

A place to get answers

Questions you ask on MEDI+SWARM are posted within your selected communities–where experts and authorities, and other community members with relevant knowledge can respond. The answers are then archived and organized so they can be accessed by anyone else with the same question. MEDI+SWARM is the best place to find answers for health and the disease issues you care about.

 

A place to share ideas

Individually, there is only so much that a single person can do. Whether it be a doctor, a researcher, or a patient or caregiver, when an individual’s ideas are shared, seeds for discovery are planted and ideas can grow into solutions. MEDI+SWARM archives and organizes the best ideas so they can be accessed, expanded upon, researched, and grown into solutions.

About the Founders

Our Story

After a brush with death from complications due to chronic disease, Dylan decided it was time to do something about it! While living with his chronic disease he suffered from feelings of loneliness—Dylan desperately wanted to talk with someone like himself to know not only what to expect long-term, but to share ideas about what helps and what worsens his condition. While talking with one of his doctors, Dylan asked what he could do so his doctor could better treat him. The doctor replied that he only treated one person like Dylan, but if he treated a thousand people just like Dylan he could treat Dylan so much better. Dylan realized that there was a need for people to meet other people like themselves, and to collect data on what works and what doesn’t so doctors could better treat every patient. With the help of two very smart friends, MEDI+SWARM was created to address these needs.
