PLATFORM

......................................................................

The Web-based platform being developed by the Institute is designed as a user-friendly solution with intuitive user interfaces, which will enable the implementation of the latest Big Data technologies. In addition to storing one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive databases and making it readily available, the Institute will also provide state-of-the-art tools to assist the researchers to pinpoint and precisely gather the data they require and to analyze them. The tools currently under development include:

An advanced semantic search engine, to assist in quickly locating the required medical data.

ABOUT US

......................................................................

Medical research is continuing to make great strides, with increasing attention devoted to predictive analysis and precision medicine. The progress in the research carried out in these fields is restricted by the unavailability of a vast body of comprehensive, accurate and reliable data – the essential resource for scientific analysis. It is also hampered by the lengthy process of compiling the specific data sets required by scientists for their research projects. The objectives of the Morris Kahn and Maccabi Health Data Science Institute, based in Israel, are to greatly simplify and accelerate this cumbersome, yet critical first step in scientific research, and to also provide tools facilitating the analysis itself. Doing so will spur scientific breakthroughs and expedite the development of innovative healthcare solutions benefiting humanity.

 
 

vision & mission

The vision of the Institute is to enhance human health by providing an advanced technological platform that will support medical breakthroughs in the fields of predictive analysis and precision medicine, and significantly increase the amount of research being performed at any given moment.

The mission of the Institute is to make the broad database of medical data pertaining to some 2.5 million members of Maccabi Healthcare Services, compiled over a period of two decades, accessible to researchers worldwide. By doing so, it will enable each researcher to become a data scientist, and to conduct multi-dimensional research utilizing Big Data approaches and methods.
