What We Do
Lucine Health Sciences is a social-benefit company, committed to improving healthcare by providing critical and credible health information to consumers, physicians and industry. We specialize in direct-to-patient health media and online research, primarily in women’s health and post market and clinical outcomes studies. Our unique combination of providing medical consumers with cutting edge research news, social communities and research participation opportunities allows us to leverage social media to the fullest extent and drive discovery in new diagnostic and therapeutic directions.
Lucine was founded on the belief that health matters. Call us idealistic, but we believe that patients and physicians ought to have credible and unbiased information from which to make healthcare decisions. We believe clinical practice guidelines and prescribing practices ought to be based on robust evidence, not consensus and not marketing. We believe that patients ought to have a role in their own healthcare decisions. And most importantly, we believe that patients hold a wealth of knowledge about their health and, when given the opportunity, patients will lead researchers like us to new medical discoveries.
