Sharing Stories Through Self-Generated Patient Videos

Pharmaguy interviews Dave Duplay, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at healtheo360, about the effects on patients of sharing their stories through self-generated videos and participation in Virtual Social Therapy® via the healtheo360 community.

Healtheo360 is a "caring network" where patients living with chronic conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer's, can go to find support, encouragement and information.

Integrating social media with healthcare, healtheo360 is promoting the voice of patients and caregivers through its video health platform in which patients, their caregivers, family members and friends share their stories through self-generated videos so that others may find inspiration, motivation and support.

Healtheo360 recently commissioned two patient studies designed to measure the advantages of Virtual Social Therapy® for type 1 and type 2 diabetics via healtheo360's interactive video platform.
