Our Story

Sometimes good things come from difficult circumstances. That’s how Medint was created. 

It started with our friend Oren, who was battling an aggressive brain cancer.

Oren was being treated by an excellent team of doctors who were doing everything in their power to help him. Until they reached a point where there wasn’t much else they could do.  

Tanya, a close friend of Oren’s, decided she wanted to do some thing to help. She gathered several people together one evening in Tel Aviv – veterans of army intelligence units, students, medical professionals, and scientists. And they started to search for information.

They used all the search methodologies they knew, including those from their time in intelligence units. By the end of the evening, they had found several possible potential treatments. And from there, the idea of MedInt was born. A few weeks later, the group met again for another friend of Tanya’s and Roy’s. And then again, for someone else. And the path to creating Medint was becoming clear.

From day one, the company was founded on three main principles. First, Medint was established to help patients. That means that patients will always be at the center of what we do. Second, our focus is on information and our ability to obtain concrete, actionable information, analyze it, and tailor it to the needs of a specific patient. Hence the name Medint – a combination of Medical Intelligence. And third – the ability to grow and scale.

Medint was created to help as many patients as possible, so we’ve built a system that can serve as many patients as possible, at once. Since we’ve started, the company has grown  – we’ve been joined by many different specialists and we’ve expanded our operations. And through it all, we remain committed to our founding principles.
