Maccabi is the second-largest healthcare maintenance operator (HMO) in Israel, covering over 2.3 million beneficiaries (26% of market share). It operates both as an insurer of its members and as their care provider. It is a community-based healthcare provider that provides most of the care in the community. Maccabi leverages Couchbase for performance at scale, integrated caching, and mobile.

“We wanted a solution that seamlessly works across server and mobile, and that the developers could use without lots of retraining. None of the other solutions came even close to Couchbase’s broad enterprise capabilities.”
