Street price of prescription drugs, as well as illicit drugs, is captured through StreetRx. RADARS® System invites you to visit the site and spread the news among your colleagues and communities.
StreetRx.com gathers user-submitted information on street prices of diverted prescription drugs. Visitors can anonymously view, post and rate submissions in a format that offers price transparency to an otherwise opaque black market, while providing a novel data set for public health surveillance.
StreetRx.com has been used to generate valuable insights for health promotion programs and epidemiological research. The site is able to identify differences in the appeal of conventional versus abuse-deterrent formulations, regional variances in diverted drug prices, and changes in the localized price and availability of newly released products. Information on drug prices and preferences help health communication specialists to tailor outreach information to local needs, and assist epidemiologists and policymakers to understand the effects of product formulations, prescribing practices and pricing structures on the diversion of prescription drugs.
In addition to the United States, StreetRx has been launched in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
