This paper describes the development of the Patient and Caregiver Journey Framework and related patient-informed principles for design and measurement created by PatientsLikeMe in partnership with patients and caregivers using qualitative research methods, immersive observation and directed one-on-one conversations. These tools provide a person-centric foundation upon which the knowledge and experience of patients and caregivers are collected, curated, aggregated and shared to support a data-driven learning health community continuously powered by the people and for the people.
