Savvy Cooperative

Companies have questions. Patients have answers. Too often, companies and innovators waste time and money creating products and services that don't meaningfully impact patients' lives. Why? Because they never bothered to ask patients. Savvy makes it easy for innovators to understand the patient experience by connecting them directly with diverse patients and caregivers. We are the first and only patient-owned public benefit co-op. Nothing says patient-centered like a patient cooperative.
Mission/Vision
Give patients direct ways to share their experiences with health innovators, and advocate that they be fairly compensated for their contributions.

Patient Insights Platform
The Savvy Patient Insights Platform helps companies get the patient insights they need to create better patient-centered solutions. Stop wasting time, money and resources developing products or solutions that don't meaningfully address patient priorities and/or are too difficult to adhere to. Savvy Cooperative provides a gig economy marketplace where innovators can request patient input. It is cooperatively owned by patients, which leverages existing communities and speeds up innovation.
