Through the partnership, Holy Name’s team will work alongside Sheba’s Accelerate, Redesign, Collaborate (ARC) Innovation Program, which gives global digital healthcare startups the opportunity to collaborate with healthcare teams, with the aim of identifying clinical needs and developing solutions to medical challenges.
“Working in tandem with Sheba will enable us to participate in an open collaboration with world leaders in global healthcare innovation, all of us working together to find new and innovative ways to deliver patient care,” said Holy Name Medical Center president & CEO Michael Maron in a statement.
Integrating Holy Name into Sheba’s startup ecosystem “to collaborate on unique digital healthcare solutions” will benefit patients in New Jersey, said Dr. Eyal Zimlichman, Sheba’s chief innovation officer who oversees the ARC Innovation Center, in the statement.
