ARC Innovation Joins Consortium of Global Healthcare Leaders, Expanding the Trustworthy & Responsible AI Network (TRAIN)


Sheba’s globally renowned ARC innovation announced  its participation in a recently launched Trustworthy & Responsible AI Network (TRAIN), a consortium of global healthcare leaders committed to operationalizing responsible AI practices in healthcare.

AI is reshaping every aspect of healthcare, including patient education and support, diagnostics, precision medicine, decision-making, and drug development. ARC and Sheba Medical Center aspire to be global leaders in the application of AI. However, as AI continues to proliferate, the importance of establishing guidelines and standards to help ensure responsible and effective application of the technology continues to grow.

The new network is comprised of leading academic healthcare institutions, health systems, and technology providers, including Duke Health, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Microsoft, ARC Innovation at Sheba Medical Center, and others.

“AI is a transforming force within healthcare, with new solutions developed daily, bringing considerable benefits to every aspect of health,” said Professor Eyal Zimlichman, MD, Chief Innovation and Transformation Officer at Sheba Medical Center and Founder and Director of ARC Innovation. “In order to effectively implement AI technologies, innovation must be balanced with responsibility and trust. AI cannot be implemented without safeguards, and only through rigorous quality and safety controls can health systems adopt these new solutions.”

TRAIN members will collaborate to enhance the quality and reliability of AI in healthcare by sharing best practices, enabling registration of AI used for clinical care through a secure online portal, and providing resources for assessing outcomes of AI implementation, while ensuring privacy preservation throughout the deployment phases. 

“We are delighted to welcome Sheba Medical Center as part of TRAIN,” said Dr. Michael Pencina, Chief Data Scientist for Duke Health. “Known for their innovative spirit and alignment with other partners on the principles of trustworthy and responsible AI, Sheba Medical Center will be an important part of our network, helping lead the way in developing and evaluating most innovative technologies that improve patient care and alleviate clinician burden.”

 “Sheba Medical Center is an international leader in the study and application of AI in healthcare and already collaborates closely with several U.S. healthcare organizations on AI initiatives,” said Dr. David Rhew, Global Chief Medical Officer and Vice President of Healthcare, Microsoft. “It is a natural fit for Sheba Medical Center to join TRAIN as we strive towards operationalizing responsible AI principles to benefit people across the globe.”
