Since 2011, Carenity’s motto has been “Patient comes first”. We have created this site in order to help you share your experience, find comfort and useful information provided by other patients and hopefully, improve your everyday life.

Our goal is to better correspond to the needs of patients and their families.

Find support from people with the same condition and the same questions as you.

Carenity connects people suffering from the same conditions by providing them with a free social network : friends, newsfeed, discussion forums, private messaging, etc. We are convinced that new technologies will help you feel less alone with your condition.

Stay informed to improve your everyday life

  • Carenity is the source of high quality medical information and news on medical breakthroughs. We publish articles, expert videos, interviews with doctors, patients’ testimonials, etc., in order to help you manage your health better.
  • Developed in collaboration with doctors, our simple-to-use applications allow you to share your opinion on treatment efficacy, follow the evolution of your symptoms and share your information with Carenity community.

Contribute to medical progress

  • We have imagined an innovative model based on collaboration and honesty. On Carenity, patients are invited to express their expectations based on their conditions and on their treatment, so that they could be taken into consideration by those who will be developing the enhanced health solutions for patients.
  • Carenity, a young innovative French company, is financed by carrying out surveys for private and public health actors: industries, doctors, researchers, patient associations… We offer our clients market studies based on the strictly confidential and aggregated data and we never give access to our members’ personal information.

This transparency is at the heart of our values: all your initiatives must first and foremost benefit patients and their families.

A word from the President

Hello!

Welcome to Carenity. If you are reading these lines, it is because your health matters to you and probably because you share our conviction that a social network can help you find support and share experiences with people living with the same condition as you.

Carenity began when Michael Chekroun had a simple dream: to aid millions of individuals living with a chronic illness find help, information, practical answers to their questions, and support from fellow patients like yourself. We envisioned an online community where everyone could connect with others who share the same questions, concerns, and hopes.

However, Carenity is more than just a social network. When you join, you actively choose to contribute to medical progress. We encourage all of our members to share their personal stories in discussion groups and online surveys. Survey results are shared with our partners, including pharmaceutical companies, researchers, and other healthcare institutions. This enables your experiences and health data to be taken into consideration by those responsible for developing and distributing the best integrated care solutions for patients. I firmly believe that real-world patient data should be a core inspiration for healthcare authorities and industries.

We have developed a transparent and virtuous model where the addition of individual experiences benefit everyone. By joining the community, you become part of a global project aimed at improving knowledge about your disease, which will ultimately benefit you.

This model lies at the core of our philosophy. However, when it comes to sharing health information, respecting privacy is crucial. My absolute priority is indeed to guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of our members' health data. Significant investments have been made in this regard. Please refer to our Code of Conduct and Privacy Policy for more information.

Carenity has been designed with patients, for patients. This website will be what you want it to be. Please feel free to let us know if you have any suggestions. We strive to improve our service everyday.

Carenity is all about understanding the patients' views so their lives can be improved.

Welcome to Carenity. This website is yours.

Lise Radoszycki
President of Carenity
