Co-Creation With Patients
Savvy founder, Jen Horonjeff, is highlighted in this piece by eyeforpharma about the importance of co-design in pharma.
Savvy Delivers on Patient-Centricity
Patients are as much part of a healthcare system as doctors, nurses, scientists, technicians and the myriad other experts whose work we rely on to keep us well and treat us when we’re sick. In fact, in their own way, patients are often experts themselves, particularly those living with long-term conditions.
A New Movement for Patient Insights
Chronic illness advocacy is pretty much a patchwork and not always as pretty as a quilt. Each condition has its own way of being engaged in feedback to organizations and actually connecting is very much a matter of luck. Savvy Cooperative is changing that.
Startup provides patient perspective
Savvy’s approach is different. It is centered on giving patients the ability to connect with the company pitches that interest them. But to be considered a patient, participants needn’t have a pre-existing condition as many of the studies advertised on Savvy’s website or looking for healthy subjects.
Working Together Wins The Day
If the constant talk about collaboration reflects an awkward truth, it’s that pharma’s silos too often silence the patient voice and stymie progress. Today, Jen Horonjeff was named this year's Patient Advocate for her efforts in breaking down these barriers — both in her personal and professional life — at eyeforpharma’s annual Philadelphia event.
Digital Therapeutics Are On the Rise
According to an online survey produced in collaboration with Enspektos by Savvy Cooperative (www.savvy.coop), a patient-owned co-op focused on delivering consumer insights, more than one-third of respondents are worried these devices will be used to track their behavior in invasive ways, or that data will be sold to third-parties without their permission.
