Sheba and Mayo Clinic Partner to Transform Patient Care Through an Innovative Data-Sharing Network

Sheba and Mayo Clinic merge Data-Sharing Network

Sheba Medical Center has joined the Mayo Clinic Platform Connect, a global data-sharing network that aims to revolutionize healthcare. The groundbreaking platform provides a safe, cloud-based framework to access de-identified clinical data across three continents while ensuring that each organization retains complete control over its medical records. 

“We are thrilled to be part of this historic alliance,” said Prof. Eyal Zimlichman, Chief Transformation and Innovation Officer at Sheba Medical Center, as well as Director and Founder of the ARC Innovation Ecosystem. “By creating a truly global network that will break down language barriers and include diverse populations, we are unleashing the potential of AI solutions to revolutionize healthcare worldwide. This is not just a game-changer, but a visionary leap towards data-driven health care.”

In the past, analyzing complex medical data, such as integrated electronic health records and images, has been challenging due to their unstructured and intricate nature. The diversity of languages used in medical records posed an additional challenge for the consolidation of clinical data on a global scale. 

This new collaboration represents a significant breakthrough, as it will accelerate the development of AI-based medical solutions, providing researchers with the best possible foundation to create the next generation of proactive and predictive medicine. By leveraging privacy-protected data in conjunction with AI and machine learning algorithms, Connect will help members analyze patterns of effective disease treatment while reducing model bias, accelerate diagnosis, determine the best treatment options, discover new methods of disease prevention, and develop, validate, and deploy medical innovations.

“We created Mayo Clinic Platform Connect to help build a healthier, more equitable future for everybody,” explains Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., President and CEO of Mayo Clinic. The data-sharing network allows patients to access personalized and preemptive healthcare, as medical experts across the globe will be able to easily collaborate to analyze, diagnose and treat complex cases.
