ARC, Sheba’s innovation arm, joined forces with Deloitte Consulting LLP to forge a unique collaboration fueled by a shared vision to help transform healthcare. The partnership was formalized at the recent ARC Summit, an annual event that brings together ARC community members, as well as executives from the technology, medicine, and public health sectors, to advance collaboration and innovation in healthcare.
Established in 2019, ARC has emerged as a global leader in driving medical innovation worldwide. Its proven model has made significant strides at Sheba and numerous other centers across the globe.
However, promoting large-scale change requires well-established connections and a profound comprehension of diverse healthcare systems, all while navigating numerous local stakeholders. By collaborating with Deloitte Consulting LLP, known for its vast experience in life science and healthcare professional services, ARC aims to accelerate the adoption of its model in innovation centers across the globe, ushering in a new era of transformation.
Agreement with Deloitte is a Turning Point
According to Sheba Director General, Prof. Yitshak Kreiss, the agreement with Deloitte “marks a significant turning point, as it paves the way for a shift in the future of health and operating models of health systems in the upcoming decade, propelling them towards transformative change.”
In collaboration with Deloitte, which operates in more than 150 countries and territories, ARC will create a comprehensive guide for establishing innovation centers worldwide, with a goal of initiating 40 innovation centers annually.
According to Asif Dhar, Vice Chair as well as US Life Sciences and Health Care Industry Leader at Deloitte, “We have been working for years to transform the industry into the Future of Health, a world in which digital medicine, personalized patient care, early engagement before disease, and health and wellness are integrated into daily life. Our research suggests that this model of health can yield more sustainable and equitable systems dramatically extending longevity and reducing health expenditure.”
As part of the new collaboration, comprehensive support will be provided to innovation centers across the globe, with Deloitte offering additional services such as cybersecurity, financial advisory services, tax, and more, tailoring its support to accommodate each hospital’s size, current level of technological innovation, and available resources.
Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, Sheba’s Chief Transformation and Innovation Officer, as well as Founder and Director of ARC, concluded: “Sheba Medical Center established ARC to lead healthcare innovation and transformation processes on a global scale. Thus far, we have successfully led these processes within Sheba and in various locations around the world, driving economic growth along the way. The partnership between Sheba and Deloitte marks a significant milestone and advances our shared vision for the global healthcare system. We are fully prepared to tackle the complex challenges ahead, energized by the exciting work that awaits us, and firmly believing in our ability to lead the necessary change.”
