Australian provider Silverchain has partnered with Israel-based telemedicine company Sheba Beyond to deliver digitally enabled in-home care.

The collaboration between the two organisations – which has been formally recognised with a memorandum of understanding – will provide pioneering new models of home care to tens of thousands of older Australians through digital technologies.

Silverchain chief executive Dale Fisher said the memorandum of understanding marked a significant milestone in the exchange of international knowledge between the healthcare and aged care sectors.

“With Silverchain’s wealth of experience in complex health and aged care in the home, together with Sheba’s accelerated approach to digitally enabled care, this partnership is linking the best minds in the care sector to deliver the future of home care.”

Ms Fisher added: “Through this joint initiative, Silverchain will have the opportunity to benefit from Sheba’s expertise and experience, further enhancing the standards and capabilities in home care for the 115,000 Australians we care for each year. Ultimately, our partnership is set to improve home care access for all Australians, enhancing care outcomes and enriching the patient experience through digital innovation.”

Professor Eyal Zimlichman – Sheba’s chief innovation and transformation officer – said he was profoundly excited about the partnership.

“Our vision with Silverchain goes beyond mere collaboration; we are collectively forging a path for transformation. Together, we’re striving to drive growth and drastically improve the way care is delivered to homes across Australia. This not just about changing the model of care,” said Professor Zimlichman, “it’s about enabling better health equity for all Australians.”

Led by Sheba’s ARC Centre for Digital Innovation, the collaboration will create cutting-edge decision-support tools, co-develop new platforms and devices, and conduct joint research into forward-thinking topics, such as smart homes said Professor Zimlichman.

“I believe our joint efforts can create a new standard of care that meets the diverse needs of individuals and communities across Australia. This partnership is a crucial step in turning that belief into a reality.”
