Your data

Your data makes a difference! 

At Elsa, we work for increased well-being, especially for individuals living with chronic conditions. The first diagnosis we are focusing on is rheumatoid arthritis. We collaborate with researchers from both academia and the life science industry with the aim of creating more and better treatment options and, above all, the opportunity for people to influence their own health.

In order to make this possible, we need to understand more about exactly what affects your well-being. To this cause the Elsa app collects health data from you. Your data is unique and together with many others, will become part of our platform for patient-driven research to promote prevention, better medication and treatments. By using Elsa, you will help not only yourself, but also everyone else who lives with the same condition.

Elsa's mission is to gather patients, researchers, life science companies and caregivers around your data so we can create an ecosystem where everyone learns from patients' motives, behaviours and driving forces. Today, we participate in a number of research projects and have collaboration agreements with pharmaceutical and diagnostic companies. Together we work to gain a better understanding of what makes you as an individual feel better, regardless of whether it is different lifestyles or medication.

We take safety very seriously and follow standards such as ISO 14971, 62304 and 62366 during the development of Elsa. The data we use and analyze is always anonymised and aggregated, and can therefore never be linked to you as a person, all according to GDPR.

If you want to know more about how we handle your data, you can read our terms of service and privacy policy. You can also contact us at dpo@elsa.science if you have any questions. 

Thank you for participating and contributing your data. Together we create a better future for people living with a chronic disease!
