This breakout brought together 5 companies focused on ending the isolation so often experienced alongside an illness. Through the development of online communities, patients can access new support groups, educational resources, and advice that was never available to them before. In an age of online communities that boost your ego, Health 2.0 is excited to present the online communities that can boost your health and wellness.

The platform gives real-time feedback along with survey statistics.
