we combine data from many different validated sources, aggregating them to deliver uniquely focused analyses of real-life patient experiences and care reality. By combining various health-related data with empirical evidence, Permea delivers actionable insights as a step change for decision makers and researchers. 

Patient-generated data

We unlock the stories behind patient-generated data

to deliver a regulatory-grade real-world view of life, therapy experiences, and individual needs of millions of patients in the real world. By combining many perspectives, we provide in-depth insights to how different therapies affect real patients.

Our mission: to generate new insights for healthcare through the analysis of regulatory-grade patient-generated data in combination with a huge variety of other data sources. Through the longitudinal monitoring of millions of patients in real-world settings, we identify characteristics, correlations, anomalies, and differences of patient populations and subpopulations, thereby making a major contribution to personalized health.
