Platforms such as Cue, which enable patients to keep an eye on their health on a daily basis, inevitably create potentially useful data. In the past, we have seen this data utilized by companies such as Ginger.io to improve mental health treatment, but now a new platform called MyHealthPal puts the data’s value back in the hands of the patient. The iOS app enables users to donate the data collected — through interacting with the platform — to relevant charities and scientific research institutions and receive a share of the revenue generated by it.
