Pharma Start-Up Shares Sales Data To Map Common US Ailments
Help Remedies releases information in an effort to see if they can learn how to help people feel better without medicine.
When someone asks how you're feeling, the typical response is somewhere along the lines of, ‘Oh, fine.' Not convinced this was true, pharmaceutical company Help Remedies decided to dig a bit further and find out how people were really feeling.
Tracking weekly state-level sales data for eight of their over-the counter-products (ranging from anti-nausea to blister remedies), Help created the site ‘What's Wrong, U.S.?' that shows the most common ailment affecting a state's population.
