Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying
about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects.
Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications
within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was
reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth.
Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient
posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient
posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition,
since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.
