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.
