The USA Patient Network consists of patients, caregivers, and their friends and family members that are united by a common goal: to make sure that medical treatments are as safe and effective as possible.
The USA Patient Network consists of patients, caregivers, and their friends and family members that are united by a common goal: to make sure that medical treatments are as safe, effective, and as affordable as possible. Representing individuals from across the United States, we are educating ourselves and others about the treatment standards that are most important to us, including improving quality of life, and the symptoms and health outcomes that matter most to patients. A major aspect of our work is to provide patients’ perspectives to federal agencies and medical and public health researchers. Unlike most patient groups, the USA Patient Network does not accept funding from pharmaceutical or medical device companies, or insurance companies.
VISION: Ensuring that medical treatments involving drugs or devices are safe, effective, and affordable.
MISSION: An independent voice to strengthen the safety and effectiveness of pharmaceuticals and medical devices for patients through advocacy and education.
