To help improve the lives of people living with Lyme disease, we sought to understand their patient journey and lived experiences.
People with Lyme disease are often misdiagnosed, overlooked, and not taken seriously due to their wide variety of symptoms, leading to damaging consequences to their health. When the US Department of Health and Human Services saw that Coforma’s Health+ model could help address this challenge, the Health+ Lyme Disease program cycle was engaged to support the LymeX Innovation Accelerator (LymeX), a $25 million public-private partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation.
