On January 23, 2019, the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and Responsum Health announced a platform that will help individuals living with pulmonary fibrosis (PF). The free platform, Responsum for PF, is essentially a personalized newsfeed, support resource, and data organizing tool for individuals with PF, that allows patients to easily access trusted, comprehensive, and understandable content
Responsum for PF includes a searchable database of more than 500 article summaries and the ability to contact healthcare providers directly to ask questions regarding the articles or news featured on the platform. Responsum for PF also provides useful health data tools including a shareable Patient One-Sheet and Patient Services, Inc.’s patient assistance program.
“Our goal is to ensure that every patient has access to the most accurate information available so that they can make informed decisions about their treatment and their life choices,” said Gregory P. Cosgrove, MD, PFF Chief Medical Officer. “Responsum for PF minimizes the risk that the information patients find online is outdated, inaccurate or misleading.”
“While the Internet offers the promise of unfettered access to massive amounts of information, patients can easily find themselves overwhelmed by too much or underserved by inaccurate, inappropriate or overly complex content. Responsum solves that problem,” said Andrew M. Rosenberg, Founder and CEO of Responsum Health. “We all agree that a better informed patient makes for better outcomes, and that is our number one goal.”
