Patient and a healthcare provider

A black graphic contains a photo of a patient being comforted by a healthcare provider wearing scrubs.  The comfort is demonstrated by the healthcare provider placing their hands on the patient’s hands.  Beneath the photo is a green banner with “Paid Opportunities: Patient Insights” in white letters.  At the bottom of the image is Bela’s logo and Bela Gaytan dot com.

Get Paid to Provide Your Insights

I’ll start this off by saying that this company is legitimate and I have participated in paid studies for them before.  It might sound too good to be true, so I wanted to ensure I prefaced this post with that information.  

  • I’m being paid to do so (no free labor around here, folks).
  • My lived experiences and insight are valuable and can help shape products, services, and programs.
  • I love supporting an organization that is founded by 2 patients themselves.

Per Savvy Cooperative:

Savvy Cooperative is the first and only patient-owned co-op that empowers people to use their health experiences to inform new products and services through surveys, interviews, product testing and more.

It was founded by two patients who wanted to make sure people who shared their health experiences were fairly compensated. That’s why we are patient-owned and the majority of our profits go right back to our members!

I’ve organized the gigs, as they are called by Savvy Cooperative, by condition as best as I could, along with providing the payment amount in US dollars and some basic details.  If you are interested in any of them, click the links to learn more.
