Brazil’s Einstein Hospital & Sheba Medical Center Partner for Open Innovation in Healthcare
Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, located in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Sheba Medical Center, announced a joint initiative last week to exchange technologies and expertise between their respective innovation ecosystems. The initiative will open up opportunities for startups and partner companies of both Eretz.bio, Einstein’s innovation hub and ARC (Accelerate, Redesign, Collaborate), Sheba’s innovation ecosystem, to explore projects focused on entrepreneurship, analysis, data processing, precision medicine, and decentralized clinical studies.
“Both Einstein and Sheba have stood out internationally in the area of open innovation in health. The collaboration signed today will enhance this action, by allowing the exchange of expertise that will bring significant advances in the development of technologies applied to patient care, as is the case of precision medicine,” said Dr. Sidney Klajner, President of Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein.
“As the leading and most forward-thinking hospital in Latin America, Albert Einstein Israelita Hospital is a great fit for joining the ARC Global Community. We look forward to collaborating with our new partners as we strive to redesign and transform healthcare together,” added Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, Sheba Medical Center’s, Chief Transformation & Information Officer.
Eretz.bio, from Einstein, will complete five years of existence this November. During this period, the hub has already incubated more than 120 startups and has been strongly supporting national and international companies, with partnerships with more than 150 startups from 21 countries, including Israel.
