PatientPartner, a platform that helps patients navigate their surgical journey, is now a premier sponsor of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Foundation’s AWARE program. PatientPartner connects patients awaiting surgery with those who have already undergone the same procedure, often with the same surgeon. Many of the patients on the platform have undergone bariatric surgery, and offer valuable insider advice. This new relationship with the largest bariatric foundation will help connect more people who have worries or anxieties about bariatric surgery, to people who have already had it.
Speaking about the newly formed alliance, PatientPartner CEO George Kramb said: “This is a pivotal moment for us, as this new relationship with the ASMBS Foundation gives us credibility both with patients and the healthcare industry to show that we are a trusted partner in helping patients receive the best care possible. Working together with foundations like the ASMBS Foundation is a huge step for us in continuing to support the patient community and we couldn’t be more excited for what is next.”
The ASMBS Foundation has a mission to raise funds for conducting research and education, increasing public and scientific awareness and understanding, and improving access to quality care and treatment for obesity and morbid obesity. President of the ASMBS Foundation Paul Enochs said: “The Foundation is excited to see the work of PatientPartner within our bariatric patient community and is looking forward to working together to carry out our mutual mission of raising awareness and providing care for patients.”
