What's eHealthMe?

eHealthMe is a health data analysis company based in Mountain View, California. eHealthMe monitors and analyzes the outcomes of drugs and supplements that are currently on the market. The results are readily available to health care professionals and consumers.

eHealthMe has released original studies on market drugs and worked with leading universities and institutions such as IBM, London Health Science Centre, Mayo Clinic, Northwestern University and VA. eHealthMe studies have now been referenced in over 500 peer-reviewed medical publications.

How we gather our data?

Healthcare data is obtained from a number of sources including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This information is aggregated and used to produce personalized reports that patients can reference.

The information that eHealthMe collects includes:

  • Side effects (including severity and how people recover from them)
  • Associated conditions or symptoms
  • Drug effectiveness
  • Demographic data regarding drug use

How the study uses the data?

The study is based on olmesartan medoxomil and levothyroxine sodium (the active ingredients of Benicar and Synthroid, respectively), and Benicar and Synthroid (the brand names). Other drugs that have the same active ingredients (e.g. generic drugs) are not considered.

What is Benicar?

Benicar has active ingredients of olmesartan medoxomil. It is often used in high blood pressure. (latest outcomes from Benicar 27,591 users)

What is Synthroid?

Synthroid has active ingredients of levothyroxine sodium. It is often used in hypothyroidism. (latest outcomes from Synthroid 170,727 users)

How to use the study?

Patients can bring a copy of the report to their healthcare provider to ensure that all drug risks and benefits are fully discussed and understood. It is recommended that patients use the information presented as a part of a broader decision-making process.
