HealthTap launches the free first large-scale doctor rating of drugs and medications


doctorsknowbestHave you ever wondered what’s the best medication to treat a discomfort, an illness, or a condition? Have you ever researched a medication prescribed for you by your doctor only to read about three others that might also work well—or might even work better? Have you ever worried over what medications are best for you or a loved one?

If so, you’re not alone. The CDC estimates that almost half of the U.S. population has used a prescription drug in the last 30 days. Our data scientists—who parsed data from more than 2.7 billion doctors’ answers to consumers’ questions on HealthTap—have discovered that many people are uncertain about the efficacy or fit of medications they are taking.

Today, we’re excited to introduce HealthTap RateRx, the only service available today that compares and contrasts drug-treatment options for a broad range of illnesses and medical conditions based on the clinical experience of thousands of top U.S. doctors. The doctors in our Medical Expert Network span 137 specialties with an aggregated 1.5 million years of clinical expertise and the collective experience of well over a billion patient visits. We’ve leveraged their expertise to help you make more informed choices about drugs and treatments.

Find out today what the physician community thinks about the drugs and medications that matter to you. View this free resource now at
