Israel-based Medint collects and analyzes information from medical websites, social platforms, blogs, and forums to help patients make informed decisions
“Imagine your father was diagnosed with advanced cancer,” Medint CEO and co-founder Tanya Attias said when she was speaking at an entrepreneurship conference held by Calcalist at Labs, a co-working space in Tel Aviv. “Who are the three doctors with the most experience treating similar cases? Which relevant clinical trials are currently open to him? What questions do you not know to ask his doctor, and what life changes could increase his odds of recovery?”
Founded in 2016, Medint collects and analyzes information from medical websites, social platforms, blogs, and forums, and also works with a network of medical researchers. Ms. Attias previously worked as a cyber intelligence consultant and analyst, and Medint’s team uses intelligence gathering methods as well as data science technology to provide patients with personalized insights, she explained.
According to its website, Medint’s services cost $1,000-$2,500, depending on the complexity of the case.
