"Stuff That Works"

Stuff that Works is a crowdsourcing platform used to better understand and solve problems for many chronic conditions. Lyme disease is one of the conditions that is in the early stages of research and development on this platform.

How it works: 

People dealing with chronic conditions share their experience in an organized survey. This data is then normalized, anonymized and analyzed using advanced machine learning algorithms that are programmed to look for valuable insights—for the entire condition community, for subgroups and for individuals. The insights are shared with the community, where members can comment, discuss and pose new research questions. Community members take an active role in determining the research direction. It only takes a few dozen people completing the survey to start generating useful insights. The more people join and contribute their information, the smarter and more personalized the insights become.
