Our story

How it all began

Predicta Med was founded in 2020 by CEO, Shlomit Steinberg-Koch and CTO, Benny Getz.

Previously, Shlomit worked for Mazor Robotics where she led the development of Mazor’s flagship product in the field of software analytics, from ideation to delivery. She took part in establishing the innovation department of Mazor together with the company’s founders.

Shlomit and Benny have recognized the huge challenge in the diagnostic process of autoimmune diseases, a process that today, on average, can take at least four different doctors and more than four years to make a definite diagnosis. These patients are enduring a frustrating journey through the medical system, in addition to, incurring huge costs to the healthcare system.
