What People are Saying About Us
TINA AND JIM BARDEN Myeloma and MGUS patients HealthTree is a unique and fresh approach to gathering patient supplied data and making it available across the spectrum of healthcare professionals, researchers, and fellow patients. This will be of great benefit to those who have multiple myeloma and are seeking future treatments and hopefully a cure.
GARY PETERSEN Myeloma Patient Advocate Less than 20% of patients are treated by a myeloma specialist and live twice as long or more than if treated by a local hematologist/oncologist. The underserved 80% of patients will live much longer if their doctor use HeathTree to guide their treatment plans. This is the most useful tool ever developed to bring the most current individualized treatments to the entire myeloma patient community.
COURTENAY THOMPSON Myeloma Patient HealthTree brings into one, easy-to-access place my medical history, my treatment history and my test results, making it easy for me to prepare for doctors’ visits and accurately share my experience with others. It gets hard to remember the details of what medicine you took when, and what the treatments did to your numbers, but with HealthTree, it’s right there.
CYNTHIA CHMIELEWSKI Myeloma Patient Advocate Getting the right treatment to the right patient at the right time while taking a patient’s personal preference into consideration is the ultimate goal of healthcare. Positive outcomes can only happen when meaningful discussions transpire based on shared decision making across the entire team. HealthTree will empower patients and care parters with easily accessible tools they need to educate themselves so they can actively engage in these interactions and confidently make informed decisions.
MIKE THOMPSON, MD, PHD Aurora Health Care HealthTree is an example of a patient-powered interactive software platform that helps empower patients and offers the chance to meaningfully engage patients in hypothesis generation and discussion of myeloma research.
JACK AIELLO Myeloma Patient Advocate I’m excited that HealthTree offers patients two major benefits. The first is a way to organize their past treatments, responses and side-effects. Patients will always have this information at hand when meeting with the doctors. And the second is with the backing of myeloma specialist, HealthTree can offer a patient potential next treatment options specifically developed for that patient to discuss with their doctor.
SANDY WONG, MD University of California at San Francisco HealthTree is a wonderful hypothesis generation tool.
