iMedix was Founded in January 2007 by Amir Leitersdorf and Iri
Amirav, iMedix is a community-powered health search engine that
allows people to easily find and share health information in order to
make better health-related decisions.
As soon as iMedix was launched it started to quickly change the way
patients around the world find health information and interact with
other patients. During the first weeks of its unofficial launch, iMedix
already assisted thousands of Israeli patients and is now helping
about half a million patients around the world.
The iMedix proprietary technology was developed by some of the
best engineers and medical informatics professors in Israel. The
technology is able to retrieve relevant health articles by studying
and analyzing the patients’ preferences. The more patients use
the system the more relevant and accurate it becomes. Using an
ensemble of machine-learning algorithms, iMedix is able to learn from
the knowledge and experience of millions of patients in order to assist
individuals in making quicker and better health related decisions.
iMedix received the prestigious best new start-up of 2007 award, out
of 82,000 start-ups from all over the world, at a recent International
worldwide competition in San Francisco.
iMedix is changing the future of humanity by allowing any individual
to benefit from the collective medical knowledge and experience of
others. In the future, we will be able to access the most comprehensive
human medical knowledge base in a single click and make better
health related decisions.
