Patients can choose to build up `stars’ faster through other activities, for example:
• 50 stars for reviewing each of your medications
• 50 stars for signing up to news on surveys and clinical trials.
The developers say that:
. an average patient collects 1000 stars a year, which is then converted into cash donations
. in its first months the app attracted nearly 20,00 users
. ”Data from reviews (patient experiences with products) is used for scientific research and may also be sold on commercial terms to healthcare companies. This data is always used in an aggregated form and is always anonymous”
Patient organisations can:
. Take part for free
. Make use of a free profile page within the app, where patients can choose to become a member of the association, or make their own donations.
The app has already attracted Danish awards including:
. Nomination for the 2017 Denmark Bridge award
. Silver winner of 2017 Danish Digital Award for innovation startups
. Apple watch
An average patient collects about 1000 stars in a year. If 1000 patients do it annually, the Parkinson's Association receives 70,000 kr.
The Parkinson's Association has already received a cheque of 1800 kr. from DrugStars. The cheque is given as a starting amount, and in the long term, the Parkinson Society will receive money half-yearly after the number of stars collected.
