People who buy prescription drugs on the black market know that the prices vary depending on what you're buying and where you're buying it, but that information tends to be localized to their town or social network. StreetRx offers a wider lens for understanding the relationships between product, place, and price, making that information available in real time.
Epidemico is a fierce leader in mining unconventional data sources to detect disease outbreak and drug safety issues, which can impact the lives of thousands, even millions of people. A public health concern of similar magnitude is the safety of our food supply chain. Where are my food products from? Who made them? How do I know if they are safe for consumption? These are all fair and common questions from consumers.
Fresh data from StreetRx and the RADARS® System show how much lower the black market street prices are for abuse-deterrent formulation (ADF) prescription opioids and stimulants. For example, OxyContin was 18% lower, Opana 35% lower, Hysingla 51% lower, and Concerta 52% lower.

At Epidemico, we’re always playing a variety of tunes during our weekly Scotch o’clock. We recently stumbled upon the song “Epidémico”, which is epidemic in Spanish, by singer, songwriter, producer & guitarist David Humeda. It’s catchy, like many of the diseases we monitor. Check out Epidémico on Spotify.
