Welcome to the SyntheaTM Wiki!

For a quick start, see the README and Getting Started.

Mission Statement

SyntheaTM is a synthetic patient generator that models the medical history of synthetic patients. Our mission is to output high-quality synthetic, realistic but not real, patient data and associated health records covering every aspect of healthcare. The resulting data is free from cost, privacy, and security restrictions. It can be used without restriction for a variety of secondary uses in academia, research, industry, and government (although a citation would be appreciated).

You can read our first academic paper here: https://doi.org/10.1093/jamia/ocx079


We are actively looking for project contributors and maintainers!
