A co-management telemedicine solution for the international medical community
PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA – Philadelphia International Medicine (PIM) has launched a comprehensive platform to provide the international medical community with clinical and educational services, which provides international physicians and their patients access to U.S. academic medical options without traveling miles away.
Global Medical Connectivity (GMCT) is a web-based, co-management telemedicine solution, created to partner with physicians to manage their patient’s advanced cardiology, neuroscience and oncology needs. This enhanced and comprehensive alternative to a patient’s routine medical travel will focus on assessing, diagnosing and managing each patient in conjunction with his or her treating physician.
“We are delighted to partner with key opinion leaders and hospitals in some of our key markets to provide opportunities to co-manage patients that are not able to travel to Philadelphia. This program also supports the efforts to nurture the relationship with the in-country treating physician and our physicians. This is the future of medicine now,” said Edgar Antístenes Vesga-Arias, MPR, CMI, PIM’s Interim President and Chief Executive Officer.
This telemedicine solution differs in many ways from traditional medical second opinions and telemedicine services in that (1) Global Medical Connectivity (GMCT) is a co-management, physician advisory program (2) program promotes local treatment of patients (3) treating physician and patient participate live for all sessions (4) sessions are scheduled throughout the course of patient’s treatment.
