About DiagKNOWsis Media

After her misdiagnosis odyssey in 2004 when Trisha Torrey, founder of DiagKNOWsis Media, was told she had only a few months to live, she decided it was her purpose in life to do everything she could to help patients get what they needed from the dysfunctional American healthcare system.

Trisha Torrey, Every Advocate’s Advocate and Every Patient’s Advocate, and founder of DiagKNOWsis Media

As a result, DiagKNOWsis (prior to adding “Media” to its name) was launched in early 2005 to provide links to online resources to help patients research their diagnosis and treatment options, that they should KNOW more.

Since then, the company has grown exponentially as it strives to provide information and educational tools to support patients and their journeys through the healthcare system.

Today the name DiagKNOWsis has become synonymous with varied patient and aging support activities, including help for individual patients and their caregivers, and business support for their advocates who wish to go into business for themselves so they can assist patients professionally.

In early 2022, three of the DiagKNOWsis brands related to independent health and patient advocacy were acquired by Consumer Health Advocacy, Inc. Those brands included The Alliance of Professional Health Advocates, the AdvoConnection Directory, and PracticeUP! Online.

In late 2023, a new venture was begun by DiagKNOWsis Media.  Aimed at those who wish to age independently (and not necessarily gracefully!) and those who care and work with them, AgeSmart! 411  began development. It will be launched to the public in early 2024.
