It’s easier than ever to support research that advances medicine. With PicnicHealth, you can contribute to research simply by volunteering to share your anonymized medical data. No extra appointments, prescriptions, or tests.
PicnicHealth selectively partners with researchers on specific diseases. By allowing these researchers to use anonymized records, PicnicHealth is able to provide study participants their medical record timeline for free.
Medical research has brought many breakthroughs, but historically it ignored the vast majority of data in the world—the medical records of real people, like you, in their normal course of care. PicnicHealth set out to change that. By leveraging historical records, known as “real-world evidence,” we can contribute to finding better care for tomorrow. This real-world evidence can help us identify trends, supplement clinical trials, and understand effectiveness of new treatments.
