Israel's health care system is remarkable among countries of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). With a well-established primary health care system, well-distributed public health resources, strong financial support, and high-quality medical care, Israel’s health system places among one of the most cost-effective in the world. This workshop further deepens the understanding between China and Israel in the research and application of big data in health care, and lays a solid foundation for close cooperation between Peking University and the Israeli government in the field of big data for health care.
