Maccabi's patient database is the key asset utilized by the Maccabitech clinical database research services team. It is derived from a central electronic medical record, containing longitudinal data on a stable population of 2 million people for over 18 years. Maccabi has created and maintains chronic disease registries, which are updated automatically in real time from the central medical record. These include diabetes, cardiovascular, infertility, hypertension, home care, cancer, schizophrenia/bipolar, warfarin treatment, chronic kidney disease, COPD and weight disorders (including obesity and metabolic syndrome) registries. The data includes demographic information, co-morbidities, lab results, medications, treatments, imaging and medical encounters (physicians, paramedical and hospitalizations). All patients have a single national identity number, which enables access to information from other national databases.
