In the latest Managed Care Cast, Mandi Bishop, MA, CEO of Aloha Health, interviews Christopher A. Snider, a patient community advocate for Symplur, creator of patient community site My Disease Secret, host of the Just Talking podcast, and social media strategist for Smart Patients.

They discuss Snider’s own diabetes diagnosis—he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2002—and his journey to patient advocate, finding a patient community on social media, what Symplur is doing with Twitter data it captures from disease communities, and more.

“My perspective with Symplur is that there is a lot of data that the patient community could potentially use to improve itself,” he said. “My initial work with them has been to try to figure out how to bring access to this mountain of data … that a lot of people don’t necessarily know exist … try to bring access to the patient community.”
