Jefferson Health and MDClone Partner to Build Healthcare System of the Future

Using MDClone, Jefferson Health will leverage synthetic data for collaborative efforts around the world to enable real-time clinical exploration

BE’ER SHEVA, Israel & PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MDClone and Thomas Jefferson University/Jefferson Health are excited to announce a new partnership to help drive innovation in healthcare. As part of a newly signed license arrangement, MDClone and Jefferson Health will work together to deploy technology and insights to unlock healthcare data to enable more research and more solutions that promote quality, safety, and efficiency in healthcare.


“We are thrilled to begin working with Jefferson Health,” said Ziv Ofek, Founder and CEO. “We have a unique opportunity to foster collaboration around the world by giving physicians and researchers tools that enable real-time clinical exploration. The power of leveraging data for better healthcare delivery is truly a global desire and this collaboration is an example where Jefferson Health and other MDClone customers can make a direct impact. Starting with this agreement with an innovative powerhouse like Jefferson Health, we are eager to connect to other like-minded health systems and will be sharing more details on ways to grow this partnership to include other institutions.”

MDClone’s platform democratizes data across the healthcare ecosystem, making it easier for healthcare professionals and researchers to identify and leverage actionable information that can transform patient care and outcomes. The differentiating features of MDClone’s technology lie in its flexible yet powerful infrastructure that enables collaboration. By combining longitudinal data organization with a synthetic data engine, organizations can quickly identify and explore useful data and securely collaborate on discovery and insight exploration with others around the world.

"I believe our collaboration with MDClone and Sheba Medical Center in Israel will give us the tools to build the system of the future - focused on prevention and keeping people healthy," said Stephen K. Klasko, MD, president of Thomas Jefferson University and CEO of Jefferson Health. "For decades, we have sought to integrate large population health datasets with the care of an individual patient. MDClone allows us to do exactly that with a clear dashboard for any clinician."

“This innovative partnership with MDClone further cements Thomas Jefferson University’s growing collaboration with forward-thinking partners in Israel,” said Mark L. Tykocinski, MD, provost of Thomas Jefferson University and dean of its Sidney Kimmel Medical College. “Through the Jefferson Israel Center—which was established in Jerusalem in 2018 to foster global education, health care and innovation initiatives—Jefferson and the Israel Innovation Authority recently announced $1 million in awards to start-up companies there. This Spring, students from Thomas Jefferson University’s architecture and industrial design programs teamed up with Sheba Medical Center to present ideas for that system’s visionary ‘City of Health’ initiative, the first phase of an exciting partnership which will carry on into the future. With this ever-increasing level of collaboration, Jefferson’s relationship with Israeli healthcare partners will only grow stronger. This partnership with MDClone builds upon that blossoming relationship.”
