The Patient Innovation platform is a social network (international, multilingual and non-profit) that aims to facilitate the sharing of innovative solutions developed by patients, caregivers and collaborators of any disease. The premise of this initiative is that in each patient and caregiver there is a significant innovative potential. In fact, we have found that patients and caregivers often develop very innovative solutions or devices when dealing with the daily challenges of their pathologies. These innovations often end up "lost" and do not benefit other patients.

The biggest advantage of this platform is its network effect: the more patients, caregivers and/or collaborators that share their solutions, more information will be available to those who are looking for answers for their problems and the higher the potential value of each solution proposed is.
