Kate Brigham

Design Director
Kate is the Design Director at PatientsLikeMe, an online patient network where patients can connect with others who have the same condition, track and share their own experiences, and learn from other patients like them. In the process, they generate data about the real-world nature of disease that helps researchers, pharmaceutical companies, regulators, providers, and nonprofits develop more effective products, services, and care.

As part of her work, Kate has led dozens of in-depth interviews with health care providers, caregivers, and most importantly patients living with a wide variety of life-changing conditions including cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, psoriasis, PTSD, and TBI. This strategy of continually listening to people’s stories and understanding their needs is at the heart of PatientsLikeMe’s process for translating those findings into useful, usable, compelling tools and content to answer member’s questions, and makes it easy for them to connect and learn from others who share not just the same condition, but also the same values and experiences.
