The World Health Organization estimates that there are over 7,000 rare diseases worldwide, impacting the lives of more than 400 million individuals. However, due to their limited prevalence and inadequate attention, these conditions are frequently misdiagnosed or remain undiagnosed altogether. Furthermore, even when a diagnosis is reached, many individuals are informed that no solutions exist for their conditions. Faced with this discouraging reality, people affected by these diseases turn to the internet for information, only to find a dearth of research and treatment protocols related to their specific conditions.
Consequently, the medical community recognizes the importance of connecting with patient communities, as traditional healthcare approaches often prove insufficient in addressing these unique challenges. That’s where Healp comes in. Healp stands as the first and only platform that collects invaluable insights from survey participants based on factors such as age, location, gender, and health condition. These insights are then utilized to provide support to Healp users in navigating the uncertainties surrounding their diagnosis. Additionally, this information helps bridge the knowledge gaps in the medical field, fostering a better understanding of the chronic and rare disease patient population as a whole.
