MedCo is open-source and available at GitHub. The latest release is available here. This codebase is no longer under development and no more features will be added soon. The current version of the platform is developed and maintained by Tune Insight SA. The roadmap below shows the schedule of past releases and features.
For further information on the available features, development, and deployment, consult our documentation page.
The active version of MedCo will be developed and maintained by Tune Insight, whose distributed analytics platform leverages post-quantum cryptography to enable privacy-preserving training of machine learning models and their use for prediction/classification (e.g., for GWAS).
Usability improvements: ontology search.
New features: cohorts as query terms.
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).
