    CrowdMed Crowdsourcing Diagnoses

    CrowdMed Crowdsourcing Diagnoses

    Jared Heyman's sister went from a young healthy teen to someone who had to drop out of college because of depression and a fatigue so profound she could only watch TV or play solitaire. She would also wake up several times a night with nightmares and cold sweats. Eventually, she became suicidal.

    Over the course of 3 years, she saw 16 different medical specialists (all seen individually) racked up $100,000 in medical bills to no avail. They couldn’t figure it out. She was what you really don’t ever want to be – a tough case. Finally, the diagnosis was made. It had a rare disease that only affects 15,000 females. She was treated and is doing fine now, but her story inspired her brother to do something to help other people like her.

    Jared Heyman founded CrowdMed to crowdsource medical diagnoses. That’s right, he designed a platform to bring together people with difficult to diagnosis conditions with folks he calls Medical Detectives – people who want to help solve the puzzle.
