Alike Health is on a mission to unlock the untapped power of patient similarity networks, turning your own medical profile into empowering insights.
We seek to inspire chronic illness patients to ask the right questions, dispel uncertainties, and become their own health advocates. By getting insights from people who share your exact clinical journey, lifestyle, and interests, patients gain the power and knowledge they’ve been missing to better manage their conditions.
The law of averages can be misleading. Traditional medicine lumps all people with the same problems together, treating patients based on generalizations.
Human beings, however, are complex mixes of different characteristics and medical realities, and should not be managed based on a single condition. Using machine learning, we group people based on shared parameters, to generate precise personalized insights.
