Using Palantir to Explore Prescription Drug Safety

From the post:

Drug safety is a serious concern in the United States with adverse drug events contributing to over 770,000 injuries and deaths per year. Cost estimates range from $1.5 to$5.6 billion annually. The FDA closely monitors these adverse events and releases communications and advisories depending on the severity and frequency of the events. The FDA released such a communication regarding the drug Simvastatin in June 2011. Simvastatin, which is used to treat hyperlidemia, is one of the most heavily prescribed medications in the world, and nearly 100 million prescriptions were written for patients in 2010.

A canned demo but impressive none the less.

I have written asking for a link to the “community” version of the software. It is mentioned several times on the site but I have been unable to find the URL.
