StuffThatWorks Raises $9M in Seed Funding
StuffThatWorks, a Tel Aviv, Israel-based patient community platform, raised $9M in seed funding. Initially, no immediate information is available and the community focuses on inviting more people to share their experiences via sharing the survey. At several hundred contributors, StuffThatWorksâ€™ proprietary machine learning kicks in, and treatments can be ranked by level of effectiveness. Once thousands of people contribute, the system can predict the most effective treatments for both subgroups and individuals. StuffThatWorks is collaborating with a limited number of researchers, medical organizations, and patient advocacy groups on Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) research.
