Encyclopedia

The World's Most Trusted Medication Encyclopedia

RxWiki publishes and syndicates the leading digital medication encyclopedia created exclusively by practicing clinical and community pharmacists.  RxWiki’s pharmacist-editors create and curate the first digital medication encyclopedia published specifically for both patients and consumers.

Our publishing philosophy focuses on velocity, editor transparency, and readability:

  • Velocity: RxWiki publishes updates within hours of FDA and pharmaceutical announcements and updates
  • Transparency: RxWiki clearly identifies the name and credentials of contributing pharmacist editors
  • Readability: RxWiki’s encyclopedia targets the 8th grade reading level

Medication adherence problems in the U.S. increased healthcare costs by over $300 billion in 2012. More than 95 million people have literacy levels below what they need to understand even basic written health information such as how often to take a medicine or what side effects to expect with their therapy. By promoting both health literacy and medication adherence, RxWiki aims to lower total healthcare costs in the US by providing a powerful patient education tool created by medication experts and community health leaders.

Pharmacies and health providers are utilizing RxWiki’s Content-as-a-Service news feeds and social media solutions to maximize patient engagement, promoting patients who are more involved in managing their health, adhering to their prescriptions, and reducing healthcare expenses.
