FAQs of eHealthMe
eHealthMe enables everyone to access and run phase IV clinical trials to monitor drug safety and effectiveness. We use proprietary algorithms to analyze outcomes of most drugs and supplements on the market since 2008. The data is obtained from a number of sources including the FDA and the CDC. Our original real-world studies have been referenced on 600+ medical publications.
eHealthMe does NOT provide medical advice.
We get this often. Sometimes diagnosis and/or underlying reasons for taking a drug are listed in the results. Other times the results (e.g. cancer) seem too much to be caused by a drug.
By no means our studies assert causal relationships exist, but rather make aware and suggest further discussion between patients and their healthcare providers. Also, we don't work on our aggregated results to make them look non "misleading". We show what we gather (after typical data cleansing), and believe aggregation then segmentation will reveal the true relevance of data. When a diagnosis (and/or its symptoms) of a drug is listed in the results, one of the common reasons is that the meds are not effective (besides other issues). So the underlying reasons and/or symptoms could be reported as adverse events. Furthermore, when they occur drug interactions could either reduce or increase the effect of one or other drugs, or could produce a different, new effect.
To wrap this up, precisely the lack of clinical trials or the impossibilities to run trials of an exhaustive list of drug interactions prompts eHealthMe to make use of medical big data.
eHealthMe is running millions of phase IV clinical trials. Most of them are freely accessible to the public. The revenue will be used to maintain and keep improving our services.
