Today’s episode is an interview with Jen Horenjeff a patient advocate, Ph.D. and the founder of Savvy Cooperative, a platform that connects patients and others in healthcare, providing the industry with real patient input and experiences to help improve products and services for a better patient experience. And it compensates those patients for that valuable information.

In this episode, Jen explains how being a patient and a professional opened the door for her to connect the patient experiences and knowledge to create a platform to improve the work of medical professionals and provide better patient experience through research, products, and services.

She also shares the value of being in a cooperative. It’s all about being valued and understood, knowing that your perspective matters. Every patient has something very unique to offer and professionals should be aware of that.
