We recently launched a feature called Socialize, allowing GI Monitor users to share their thoughts as they track their conditions in real-time. The conversations that have taken place since our soft launch have been fascinating and extremely valuable to our users. In this same release, we included the ability for GI Monitor users to connect their Foursquare accounts. Once connected, GI Monitor users can see their "check-ins" plotted against symptoms in their interactive charts.
This WSJ video presents a pretty good overview of what some patients are doing to take control of their health. In this rapidly evolving era of consumer health, its super important that neither the patient nor the doctor sees the "Health Hacker" model as trumping the guidance of an educated health care provider. The right model is a partnership between data collection and data analysis.

Entrepreneurship is hard. All those blog posts you read about the ups and downs are absolutely true. But so are the parts about affecting change and disrupting conventional workflows. And that’s what makes me smile every morning when I look at my Socialize feed in GI Monitor and see things like “My GI recommended it” and “my nurse suggested this app”.
