An Open-Source Platform For Distributed Analysis of Healthcare Data

Perform off-the-shelf federated analyses on FHIR and DICOM data distributed across multiple hospital institutions.


CODA Platform Overview

CODA is a comprehensive suite of open-source software tools that enables ingestion, storage, analysis, and visualization of distributed healthcare data.

Health-ready federation platform

Baked-in support for standard healthcare standards (DICOM, FHIR) and terminologies (LOINC, SNOMED, ICD-10, CPT, AHFS).

Multi-site data visualizations

Create on-the-fly federated data visualizations using a no-code, dropdown-based visual query interface.

Small deployment footprint

Powered by an agile, highly deployable technological stack including NodeJS and TypeScript.

Federated multimodal learning

Launch distributed learning queries on multi-modal data using TensorFlow 2 and the Keras API.
