Today’s milestone for the Responsum for PF app and online community brings the company one step closer to its vision of bringing reliable, accessible health care information directly to patients living with chronic disease.
Earlier this month, our Alliance Ambassador Claudia Alarco Alarco and I ran an exhibit booth at the 5th Biennial Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation Summit in San Antonio, Texas. Over 300 patients attended this incredible gathering, along with large numbers of health care professionals, researchers, and academic leaders. The PFF put on an impressive event: for three days, it was the true staging area in humanity’s war with this dreadful disease.
This Summit also represented an important turning point for those of us at Responsum Health, where we’ve been working in relative obscurity – alongside dozens of pulmonary fibrosis patients – to develop a better way for patients with chronic conditions to harvest the Internet for useful, current, and trustworthy information.
This was the third year in a row that we participated in an annual PFF event (including last year’s volunteer gathering in Chicago) but it was the first since we launched the Responsum for PF app.
What a difference a year makes!
