The Victorian Government is supporting one of the world’s leading hospitals to work with Victorian university, healthcare and medical research leaders to boost digital healthcare for patients across the state.
Israel’s Sheba Medical Centre has entered a partnership with the Victorian Government, Monash University, Monash Health and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to explore the possibility of opening an Accelerate, Redesign, Collaborate (ARC) Innovation Centre in Victoria.
ARC Centres focus on accelerating innovation through collaboration to transform healthcare delivery and improve patient outcomes, bringing together key players in digital health – physicians, researchers, startups, industry leaders, academia, investors and top-tier medical centres.
One of the key goals of the partnership is to grow Victoria’s capabilities in commercialisation, healthcare innovation and entrepreneurship.
Recently, the ARC Centre in Israel worked with Sinai Chicago, the University of Illinois, the University of Chicago’s Department of Medicine and ANDHealth to establish ChicagoARC, tackling the root causes of healthcare inequity and social determinants of health in Chicago.
In another win for Victoria, Sheba is intending to launch its inaugural ARC Asia Summit in Melbourne in 2024.
The ARC Summit in Israel is an annual flagship event that brings together 1,000 delegates from the ARC community and executives from technology, medicine and public health from around the world.
Victoria’s booming medtech sector creates $21.4 billion in annual revenue and $3.5 billion in export earnings while supporting more than 31,000 jobs.
