Patients in a majority of states with a serious medical condition now have access to medical marijuana. As treatment options expand and evolve for the millions of eligible patients in our country, there are still many unanswered questions. Little data exists around what specific formulations work best for which conditions, how medical marijuana interacts with their current medication regimen, and how it impacts different people based on their genetic makeup.
The Remedy Metrics team is made up of a unique blend of technologists, scientists, and patient advocates. We knew at the intersection of these three focus areas there was the potential for a tool designed to answer these questions. A tool that drives science, improves patient care, and optimizes each individual’s experience with medical marijuana. The tool is Remy.
We believe that open sharing of information will lead to better experiences and outcomes for all patients. We believe that data can drive scientific discovery and medical advancements. And with the Remy app, we can collect and share data in a secure and thoughtful way.
Patients share information about their condition, medical regimen, and genetic makeup. They receive medical recommendations and track their progress through the Remy app.
Our partners leverage de-identified information to advance science and improve patient outcomes. The knowledge base and amount of data surrounding medical marijuana grows.
