WEGO Health, a network of the most influential members of the online health community, today announced that its membership has topped 100,000 patient leaders.
“Our patient influencer members are leading a revolution. Through them, health consumers are engaging each other by the millions, connecting into an explosive, organic force of health change with the power to overwhelm longstanding public health and industry challenges, and to reinvent the rules of communication,” said WEGO Health CEO Jack Barrette.
Patient influencers, also called Health Activists, are the online health discussion group leaders, the bloggers and tweeters and Facebook mavens, whose grassroots passion connects and moves their thousands of health community members every day. WEGO Health estimates its 100,000 members now reach more than 150 million people every month.
“Critical mass matters because patient influencers act like caring, human cell towers – connecting people to each other and to health answers,” says Barrette. “Now the influencer connector ‘towers’ are so numerous that virtually no patient call gets dropped. And just as mobile is reinventing the way we communicate, those millions of connections are making over health and healthcare.”
WEGO Health connects companies to millions of active health consumers by activating its network of trusted patient influencers. Dozens of health companies, from startups to agencies to big pharma, are already engaging through WEGO Health and its WEGO Health Solutions team. Solutions for business include Research, Recruitment, Collaboration and Activation.
In line with its mission, WEGO Health has launched innovative collaboration platforms. The Truvio mobile insights platform connects companies to patient influencers via smartphone research, enabling on-demand patient leader interaction. Sharing Hubs drive social content distribution, and the Partnering for Patients program recognizes patient leaders with sponsor support.
