Sheba Medical Center and Allscripts Healthcare Solutions recently announced that they have teamed up in the mission to advance patient care and healthcare in general. Allscripts, a leading healthcare information technology firm, will work together with Sheba to transform patient care by the year 2030. At Sheba, this initiative is being developed through the ARC Innovation Center.
Presently, Sheba uses the Allscripts dbMotion Solution to compile patient data. Now, the hospital will add an additional cutting-edge laboratory to its vast campus. Researchers and developers will be given easy access to Allscripts’ open system, and Sheba’s staff and Israeli startups will assist with healthcare information technology innovation. At the same time, they will use these resources to explore new ideas and initiatives, such as a future electronic health record that also includes home hospitalization medical data.
“Our partnership with Allscripts will provide a significant boost to startups and clinicians as they build new capabilities into Allscripts’ solutions through their unique open platforms,” said Dr. Eyal Zimlichman, Sheba’s chief medical officer, chief innovation officer and deputy director-general. “With the need for rapid changes these days, we need a leader like Allscripts that’s agile, open and connected to the needs of patients, clinicians and governments.”
Paul M. Black, CEO at Allscripts, expressed his excitement over this latest opportunity to join forces with Sheba. In his words, “Creating an environment that encourages collaboration between some of the brightest minds in healthcare information technology speaks to our commitment to continuously innovate … capitalizing on our 13-year commitment to an open platform, and our long standing belief to include the best minds to advance and best meet the needs of providers and patients across the globe … Sheba Medical Center is an exemplar for successful healthcare delivery. Allscripts is proud to advance our partnership even further through the ARC initiative.”
