Israel plans to announce big data health project.

 

Almost all of Israel’s nine million citizens belong to four health maintenance organizations (HMOs) who keep members’ records digitally.  This is a huge benefit to the medical field since they can see members data easily and readily.

“This is a major asset and we want to make it accessible to researchers and developers in order to achieve two things: one is preventive medicine, and the second is personal medicine tailored to each individual,” Netanyahu told his cabinet.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke about problems that may arise including, private companies taking advantage of the database and making medication costly for patients.

Digital health records are valuable. Analytics provide a lot of insight into what medicine and prescriptions are working for patients.

All the world’s major drug companies now have departments focused on the use of real-world data across multiple diseases.

Benjamin Netanyahu is hoping that this will inspire countries to focus on data to benefit patients.
