Healthcare Collective Compensates Patients For Their Medical Insights

Savvy is a community that prioritizes its patient-based knowledge, paying them for their contributions to humanizing healthcare and providing a resource for practitioners

A collectively-owned healthcare platform called Savvy is helping medical practitioners and providers connect with patients who are compensated for their contribution to medical work.

Created by Jen Horonjeff and Ronnie Sharp, the mission of Savvy is simple—connect practitioners with patients. When doctors or researchers need some light shed on a particular condition, they reach out to the Savvy community via an assortment of channels; surveys, focus groups, interviews and more. The service also asks patients to share their unique health experiences with professionals, helping provide individual insights.

This improved relationship between provider and patient makes it simple for patients to communicate what they need on a personal level, not just what science dictates their condition requires. Savvy is also owned by its members and compensates users for their first-hand insight. The collective recognizes that the information the community provides is fundamental for the medical field to advance and aims to humanize healthcare and improve patients’ experience.
