MDClone is a secure, self-service platform for querying and analyzing ‘synthetic’ data. These data are created to have the same properties as real data, but to provide much greater protection for patient privacy.
The Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre and the McGill Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences have signed an agreement with MDClone to provide access to synthetic data of the patient population at Sheba Medical Center in Israel as well as two large HMOs (Health Maintenance Organization), Maccabi and Leumit.
Since the use of synthetic data is not classified as human subject research, project review by an ethic committee is not required.
Established in 1948, Sheba Medical Center, Israel’s City of Health, is the largest, most comprehensive healthcare facility in the Middle East and one of the top 10 hospitals in the world for the last four years running according to Newsweek magazine.
With over 1,700 physicians, 1.9 million patients treated annually, and 4,000 active research projects, Sheba is a leader in both clinical care and medical research.
If you are an active researcher at the RI-MUHC or McGill University and you would like to become a user of the Sheba Medical Center synthetic data, please complete the form on this page and we will contact you when training schedules are available.
