46brooklyn releases "Do-It-Yourself" tutorial to facilitate crowd-sourcing of drug pricing research

Do you like to tinker with data? Do you broadly distrust anything you have not created yourself? Are you tired of the drug supply chain funding their own studies telling you how wonderful they are, without telling you exactly how they calculated their wonderfulness?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then this video is for you!

Inspired by videos our kids watch to learn how to build elaborate random stuff in Minecraft, we created a video to show you how to construct the wildly-popular 46brooklyn Medicaid Drug Pricing Heat Map from scratch. You are now just 30 minutes away from piecing together the disturbing randomness that is Medicaid generic drug pricing.

Our hope is that this tutorial inspires you to create your own tools to help answer your drug pricing questions, with the conviction that can only come from “building the house” with your own two hands!

Big thanks to Journeyman Productions for filming, assembling, and editing the video!

Thanks to Bob Herman at Axios for the shout-out on our report from last week that highlighted how generic drug prices are not falling to the degree with which we've become accustomed to.
