Innovation & Big Data


The KSM innovation arm offers researchers and entrepreneurs unparalleled access to medical data through a unique online research platform in a cloud based environment. The platform relies on advanced big data and AI technologies, which enables startups and partners to acquire unique medical data and results.

Maccabi has long been recognized as an innovative healthcare system, leading the way in cutting edge medical technology, comprehensive and integrated computerized information systems, cost-effective management, and sophisticated monitoring and evaluation tools. Since 1993, electronic medical records (EMR's) have been implemented in Maccabi, documenting all types of medical information in a central database containing complete data on each patient. This database provides comprehensive, systematic, quality data including a stable population of patients across their lifetime (less than 1% of patients leave Maccabi). Maccabi has also formulated automated clinical registries for chronic diseases utilizing the comprehensive data in the EMR's.
