In the process of seeking better health, being more informed about their situation and finding comfort and support, patients are flocking to social health websites by the millions. They seek medical information and at the same time share their own personal experiences and insights. Aware of this social health movement, health professionals are eager to learn about this change and its far reaching implications on patient preferences.

There are roughly 10 Billion patient discussions throughout the Web, but no real way to sample this surge of data and get a snapshot of what they’re saying. It’s a messy sea of scattered information, with very little consistency and structure. In this reality, patients and healthcare professionals can generate very limited value from patient discussions

Treato is changing this reality. Developed over 3 years by First Life Research, a company based in Yehud, Israel, Treato uses novel technology to understand what patients are saying in their own words. It is nearly impossible to understand billions of discussions in the medical field – one of the most complex and sensitive topics discussed online. Deciphering this data is a significant challenge, requiring combined expertise in both computer science and psychology. Treato identifies, analyzes, and understands the information from patient discussions, inviting anyone to search this data on treato.com and explore thousands of drugs and medical conditions.

More than a 100 meetings between Israeli technology companies to South African and African media companies last week in global media event in Amsterdam. Following the Visit of Israel’s Efrat Fenigson to South Africa in July and a seminar on new-media technologies from Israel, many of South Africa’s TV operators, broadcasters and related companies visited the Israeli pavilion at the IBC Amsterdam exhibition and conference.

The Embassy of Israel thanks all the south Africans that have visited our pavilion and that expressed interest to cooperate with Israeli companies. for us, it is a start of long term partnership. We invite you to come to Israel to attend Contech Israel 2010 (8-10 November), to meet more Israeli technology providers and meet global industry leaders at the conference.


The Embassy of Israel stands in support of the South African broadcasting industry in its efforts to keep the decision to adopt the European digital broadcasting standard DVB-S. We believe that that is the right standard for South Africa, both in technological point of view and social point of view. There s no doubt that in terms of economy of scale, the Euroean standard is more valuable, while the Japanese one, will limit the SA industry to the local market.

It’s no secret that the media are in upheaval. Print faces unprecedented challenges from the electronic domains. New technologies are morphing the mobile phone into a pocket-sized PC with interactive capabilities surpassing the desktop variety. The PC itself, abetted by its netbook cousin, is evolving from productivity tool to an integrated news and entertainment platform. Converged devices are in demand, Internet video is a reality and new content sources abound. Television is going digital, reinventing itself as on-demand IPTV. Social media and social networking are exploding as mass audiences disperse, personalization becomes key and user-generated content comes to the fore. All of this is happening right now, all over the world, and even more so among young people, the digital natives shaping the future.

For consumers, all this is a treat. For business users, it’s a boon. For established media companies, content providers and operators, a challenge unlike any they’ve known before.

Telecom operators need infrastructure partners who can not only deliver the content but monetize it. Broadcasters must evolve a service-oriented model and technologies that offer users the same simplicity, service availability and quality as traditional broadcast TV. Content providers must integrate their offerings and harness digital possibilities – like basing TV broadcasts, in part, on the popularity of items on the broadcaster’s website. All must capitalize on the complex delivery matrix and develop systems that draw together applications, delivery platforms and managed networks. And all must strive harder than ever before to reach the connected user – who by 2011 will be one in four people around the world.Full Article.
