Patients have three principal needs: social relations, tools which make their everyday lives easier and the need to stay informed. People Who fulfils each of these three dimensions with our three sections: a Community to speak to other people who are in the same situation, a Control area to keep track of the illnesses and a Magazine for patients to stay up-to-date with reliable information. What’s more, we’re adapted to every device, because we know that e-patients are mobile.
At the end of the 1970s, before the internet changed our society, Dr. Tom Ferguson coined the term “e-patient”, inviting all patients to involve themselves in their treatment. The “e” refers to four different concepts: equipped with the skills to manage their own condition, enabled to make choices about self-care and with their choices respected, empowered to choose the team of health professionals who treat them and engaged in their own care. The e-patient is already a reality and health is changing. People Who was established as a part of this change, an initiative that helps the patient when they are not in the presence of medical professionals, complementing the work of the doctor.
That’s why People Who is the only platform with content and tools specifically adapted to the reality of the patients with each illness. This allows us to have segmentation, a communication channel and a knowledge of e-patients which is specific to each illness. People Who was founded in 2012 with the first illness platform online. Since then, we have been adding new illnesses, with each illness profile owning its very own place at People Who.
Allergies, alzheimer's, arthritis, atrial fibrillation, bipolar disorder, coeliac disease, depression, diabetes, epilepsy, hepatitis, HIV, HPV, infertility, leukaemia, obesity, ovarian cancer, psoriasis, schizophrenia and skin cancer.
With an international outlook from the outset, People Who was founded as a pilot project in Spain so that it could grow in Europe throughout 2015: France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy. What’s next? We will also soon be present in the USA and in several Latin American countries: Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile and Argentina.
We are an international team, distributed across the various countries in which we operate, with headquarters in Madrid (Spain). A multidisciplinary and multicultural team of digital professionals, doctors, social managers, developers, designers, etc. A team which works with a global and local point of view with the aim to build a society that copes a little better with the illness.
People Who is available for the health industry to cover three objectives:
People Who was created with the aim to help people live with their illness a little better. To do this, our platform offers free services to the patient thanks to the support of the health industry.
br>We would like to thank all companies that support or have supported this project so far: Astra Zeneca, Daiichi Sankyo, Lilly, Lundbeck, Novartis, Nutricia, Otsuka, Pfizer, Roche and UCB.
People Who incorporates ethical and legal policies so that the healthcare industry can provide all the necessary guarantees: adverse effects, data protection policy specific to healthcare and rules of use that ensure a safe and respectful environment for users, country by country.
Both employees and sponsors sign an ethical code that ensures independence and priority facing the interests of the patient. All communities are monitored, and all published contents are supervised by doctors, all so that the patient participates in a safe environment.
