Through the Looking Glass: Reflecting on 2023

Through the Looking Glass: Reflecting on 2023

Embarking on the journey of self-reflection is not just a personal endeavor; for us at iCareBetter, it’s a collective celebration of progress, community, and collaboration. As we bid farewell to 2023, a year marked by challenges and triumphs, it’s time to take a look into the past year and reflect on all that has been accomplished. Join us as we navigate through the areas of growth, community involvement, projects, and meaningful collaborations that shaped our year. In this special blog post, we’re excited to share the insights gained from our podcast endeavors and offer a sneak peek into the thrilling developments that await us in 2024. Let’s rewind, recap, and anticipate the exciting narrative that continues to unfold in the ever-evolving story of iCareBetter.

About iCareBetter

iCareBetter is an innovative platform dedicated to helping patients with endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain find compassionate and skilled experts. All experts on iCareBetter have shown knowledge and expertise in the treatment of endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain.

Vision

Our vision is to reduce the symptom-to-effective treatment of endometriosis to less than a year. Studies show that patients with endometriosis spend an average of 7.5 years to have an official diagnosis. Moreover, even after the diagnosis, patients will have to spend several years with multiple failed treatment attempts. After the long delays in diagnosis and treatment, they might be lucky enough to receive effective treatment from an expert.

Mission

Our mission is to improve access to high-quality specialized care for those with endometriosis. iCareBetter wants to combat the issue of patients living in confusion, pain, and isolation. To that end, we hope to connect as many patients to the right experts as early as possible. And we hope that this will ensure timely diagnosis and effective treatment.

What To Expect in 2024 

While 2023 was a big year for iCareBetter, we hope to continue the growth and expand our providers across the globe. Our hope is to increase our collaboration with medical specialists, researchers, and advocates. There are some exciting things to come in 2024 including a new season of iCareBetter: Endometriosis Unplugged as well as some other projects that will be announced in 2024.
