Using crowdsourcing for public health surveillance, the StreetRx program gathers user-submitted information, capturing the street price of prescription and illicit drugs. StreetRx is a collection of databases, websites, and citizen reports enabling real-time collection, organization, and display of street price data on diverted pharmaceutical controlled substances. Based on principles of crowdsourcing for public health surveillance, the site allows users to anonymously submit prices they paid or heard were paid for diverted prescription drugs. Visitors can anonymously view, post, and rate submissions offering price transparency to an otherwise opaque black market, while providing a novel data set for public health surveillance.
StreetRx has been launched in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
StreetRx is a collaboration between Epidemico and the Researched Abuse, Diversion and Addiction-Related Surveillance (RADARS®) System, a prescription drug abuse, misuse and diversion surveillance system that collects timely product-and geographically-specific data.
High-level regulatory changes within federal agencies are calling upon both industry and individual government agencies to be more proactive around the detection of food and drug safety issues. SupplyChainMap monitors products under FDA regulation (food, medical products, cosmetics, dietary supplements, pet food, veterinary medicines, etc.) focusing on cross-border imports from high-risk countries. By prospective monitoring of open intelligence from social media, news media, and other unofficial data sources, SupplyChainMap provides early insight on potential contamination, adulteration, and quality issues in aforementioned products through customizable data visualization. The real time supply chain safety data coupled with built-in geospatial capability addresses both the extended value chain and geo-environmental risks that are missing from traditional supply chain risk management solutions. SupplyChainMap works with regulatory players, public health institutions, as well as commercial organizations, food producers, and pharmaceutical companies.
