Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the country will invest nearly $287 million for a big data project designed to make citizens’ health information available to researchers and privacy companies, Reuters reports. Netanyahu said the project will help with personalizing medicine for each citizen and for preventive treatments. The information will come from the four health maintenance organizations within Israel that hold almost all the health data belonging to the nine million citizens of the country. Netanyahu’s office released a statement saying it will address data concerns by ensuring the information will be protected by the proper privacy and security measures while making sure access to the information is restricted.
