The Database of Patient Experiences (DIPEx) methodology used to develop HealthExperiencesUSA.org, a website that brings patients' voices to American healthcare, was recently featured in articles in both the New York Times and USA Today as an important resource that can enable patients with depression to identify with others who suffer from the disease. The New York Times article discussed the far-reaching benefits for patients with a wide range of diseases to hear the stories of others who have faced the same condition. In USA Today, a senior paster at the First Presbyterian Church in Bethlehem, PA discussed misconceptions about depression and cited HealthExperiencesUSA.org as a resource for better understanding the the perspective of those suffering from it. Depression in Young Adults was the first module to be launched on HealthExperiencesUSA.org, and a new module on Traumatic Brain Injury in Veterans is slated to be launched in the near future.
