Did you know?
80% of clinical trials are delayed due to lack of patient participation. Conversely, most patients never hear about clinical trials that they could have participated in and benefited from.
What we do
GetWellSoon helps people with medical conditions search for a potential cure by connecting them to relevant clinical trials close to their homes. We have aggregated more than 500,000 clinical trials by partnering with leading hospitals, government organizations, and medical sites.
GetWellSoon.ai was founded by two brothers, students with a big dream.
One of them is a clinical trial patient himself. He has a terminal disorder called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy,
a rare condition that affects 1 in 5000 boys and hinders the growth of muscles.
After searching for a clinical trial for 10+ years, he noticed two things: the information was mostly
available in government protected databases; and there were so many scattered medical websites
that were too hard to find and navigate.
So they decided to simplify how patients connected with clinical trials, and what started as a summer project became GetWellSoon.ai.
Under the hood
The platform is divided up into three modules: the search engine, the extraction engine, and the connect engine. The search engine takes in patient information and matches the most relevant trials based on medical condition, age, and location. The extraction engine collects unstructured trial data from 100s of hospitals, government organizations, and medical websites, normalizes it and stores it as structured data. The connect engine allows researchers to promote their trials and enroll patients using our platform. We send personalized email alerts to patients.
We are building trial matching based on natural language processing and machine learning, so that we are able to understand patient intent, medical conditions and clinical trial intent much better.
While we started with clinical trials, our vision is to build the Khan Academy for healthcare, i.e. make healthcare available to anyone anywhere. Be it someone searching for a clinical trial and enrolling, or someone trying to understand their symptoms to narrow down the medical condition and quickly connect with the right specialist.
