This version of MedCo is not maintained anymore and is only available for archival and research purposes. The current version of the platform is developed and maintained by Tune Insight SA.



MedCo extends and keeps compatibility with i2b2, the most widespread cohort explorer used in more than 200 clinical sites worldwide. Thanks to Docker technology, MedCo can be easily deployed by clinical sites willing to quickly set up a secure and privacy-preserving clinical network. Thanks to a modern and intuitive open-source graphical user interface, MedCo is easy to use also by non-technical users.
