Using its database, Maccabi's database research service can help clients understand the impact of treatments on patients. The effectiveness of various approaches can be compared, side effects tracked and measured. Because Maccabi's database includes complete drug purchase records, not merely the prescriptions, we can study and evaluate drug compliance. Because of our ability to interact directly with the physicians, we can evaluate quality of life, in addition to other outcomes.
