MedCo is open-source and available at GitHub. The latest release is available here. This codebase is under continuous development and more features will be added soon. The roadmap below shows the tentative schedule for upcoming features and releases.
For further information on the available features, development, and deployment, consult our documentation page.
Interaction with secure analysis platforms to enable privacy-preserving training of machine learning models, and use for prediction / classification, including for example GWAS.
New features: query of sequences of observations (time series); count breakdowns; descriptive statistics for observations with continuous values.
Integration of MedChain: enables user management and immutable trace of query logs.
New feature: query for observation date / temporal constraints.
Usability improvements: ontology search; auto-completion for genomic annotations.
New feature: concept counts in ontology (for privileged users).
First beta release of MedChain.
Bug fixes, stabilisation and polishing.
Many small improvements and bug fixes.
New features: cohort management; advanced query features: numeric and text values, modifiers; loading of RDF data files; computation and visualization of survival curves; results obfuscation; replicated query logs enabling passive query auditing.
Beta of the decentralized blockchain-based MedChain system enabling user management and immutable trace of query logs.
Software stabilization and pen-testing
Test deployment at three Swiss University Hospitals: Geneva (HUG), Lausanne (CHUV) and Bern (Insel)
Security reviews according to OWASP standards
Integration with SAML-based federated Identity Providers (SwitchAAI)
Different query types: global patient count (aggregated answer from all sites); obfuscated counts (with differential privacy); patient list
Upgraded compatibility to PIC-SURE 2.0, consolidation of deployment, architecture change.
First working prototype for the MedCo application with a genomic (from cbio portal) and medical (i2b2 demodata) dataset. This release includes: deployment dockers; full ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) with dummy generation; accurate patient counts per site; PIC-SURE/IRCT 1.4 + GlowingBear UI; MedCo technical documentation (WIP).
