Michael Chekroun

President and Founder

I created Carenity on 2011 with one simple objective: help people to deal with their diseases. Having close to me people that have been touched by serious diseases, I know how difficult it is to find quality information and how fast someone can feel lonely and helpless. I created a social network for all those who wish to find practical answers to their health questions with other patients. I also wanted to build an innovative and ethic company, in which each one by shearing their experience can contribute to the Improvement of medical knowledge.

I joined Carenity on 2013 as head of business development, convinced by the collaborative model that allows each one of the members to contribute to the progress of medicine thanks to the sharing of their experiences. Mi role is to help our partners –pharmaceutical laboratories or manufacturers of medical devices- to better understand the needs of the patients thanks to real life information and in this way to have a better answer.

My role at Carenity is to analyse the data transmitted by 200 000 patients with chronic conditions – members of our online community. This way, their needs and expectations are taken into account by health industries, which contributes to the improvement of their quality of life.
