Our mission: To represent the collective rights, interests, and voices of patient communities in health tech.
2019 Inaugural Meeting
Watch footage from our first meeting in February 2019, which set the founding vision for The Light Collective.
There are good and bad types of health data sharing in healthcare technology. Let's bolster the good kind and protect from the bad kind.
Our vision is a world in which patients and patient communities participating in health technologies are safe from exploitation and harm, have the right to decide how our collective health information is used and shared or used.
The value of the collective governance is derived from the ability of an online community to make and carry out decisions. As patients, we serve a critical role in the healthcare landscape. We seek a future where the role of patients is recognized, valued, and supported on equal footing with technology developers.
Core Values of The Light Collective
These are the core values of The Light Collective’s governance.
Tapping into the power of The Collective.
We seek ways to make online communities and the members they serve the beneficiary of resources and knowledge that are generated by online health communities.
