Crohnology is a project with one ultimate goal: to build a patient-centered information sharing network for people with chronic medical conditions. We envision a world in which every patient can instantly tap into the knowledge and experiences of every other, so that every patient can learn how well treatments have worked for others, whether they are alternative, experimental, or prescription.

People with medical conditions walk around generating an incredible amount of data about their health every second of every day, but we just let that data disappear. We don’t know how well most treatments actually work in the wild. Crohnology allow patients to collaborate, share health and treatment information with each other, and track and share their health. Patients learn from each other’s experiences in a massively scalable way. This turns the traditional medical model on it’s head. We think this is a better model for medicine for patients living with chronic conditions.

Crohnology is currently open in beta specifically for people with Crohn’s or Colitis. These are a pair of incurable, autoimmune diseases that cause inflammation throughout the digestive tract.
