Da'at - Hebrew for knowledge - acts as a bridge between the patient and the health care provider.

The Da'at medical query service, now located at Yad Sarah, helps individuals and families access information on medical treatments or surgery to help a patient understand his condition, the various treatment options in easy to understand  language.  Da'at helps people make an informed decision about their own health care.

Da'at consists of "two and a quarter paid workers" - nurses and a librarian - and 30 volunteers, including physicians, biochemists, nurses, therapists and psychologists.  Services are offered free of charge.

Da'at has answered more than 25,000 queries since its inception.  Individuals and families can access Da'at from their homes, either by telephone or email, or in person at Yad Sarah. 

Within the Yad Sarah framework, the Jerusalem Council for Children and Youth and “Da’at” (Health Information Services) have joined together to establish a new information center for the learning disabled (LD) to serve parents, students, and professionals.
