Improve side effects reports with patient innovation

In the healthcare sector recent changes demonstrate how "side effects underreporting" could have tragic consequences. Even if regulations in Europe result in more pressure for pharmaceutical companies to identify early potential side effects directly from the patient, collecting them is still a difficult task : since patients aren't sure that what they experience is actually a side effect, they seldom report it and they haven't any incentive to spend their time on finding and filling out report forms.

However patients are sharing their health data in ever-growing number. Understanding why leads to safety process improvments and high level reports.
