This Company is Helping Patients Get Paid for Their Influence

Wow.

Wego Health Experts helps brands connect with patients to find clinical trial participants, research and surveys, “awareness” campaigns, speaking engagements and so on.

Chief Strategy Officer David Goldsmith says some of these processes, such as clinical trial recruitment, used to take months and cost “tens of thousands of dollars,” which typically went to third-parties rather than patients.

But influencers with rare diseases can often get the job done faster and for a fraction of the price. Wego makes money by taking a cut of the overall fee.

What do you think? A smart idea? Or a misuse of trust?
