An index  was created by a Safra Fellow that ranks the 20 largest pharma and biotech companies, as well all new medicines and vaccines, on critical ethics, public health, and human rights issues. The first pilot was completed before the hackathon; it ranks companies and new medicines on the degree to which clinical trial information is disclosed.  Gathering the data for the pilot index was very time consuming, so the hackers are working to automate the process. To this end, they created a software to automate the most time consuming, important and tedious part of the ranking: scraping FDA pdfs for data.  So far it is looking good!  We are also beginning to visualize the data.
