PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia International Medicine (PIM) and Cancer Center Tec 100 have created a partnership that will enable both organizations to share medical knowledge and technology while also working to improve accessibility to highly skilled care in both Philadelphia and Santiago de Queretaro, Mexico.
"It is an honor to work with a renowned institution in Mexico focused on the quality of patient care and long-term clinical results, which houses a group of experts in cancer treatment and advanced treatments." said Edgar Antistenes Vesga, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Philadelphia International Medicine.
Their recent Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will allow the two organizations to create a collaborative relationship in the areas of clinical and administrative training, physician exchanges, enhancing the continuum of care and other joint opportunities.
Cancer Center Tec 100 – PIM Health Gateway Initiative will create a channel to share medical knowledge and technology while also working to improve accessibility to highly skilled care. By building relationships and jointly exploring opportunities, both parties, as well as their constituents, seek to better the overall health of their communities. Through this gateway, PIM will offer a unique opportunity for Cancer Center Tec 100's physicians to have access to continuous medical education seminars, medical training, innovative uses of medical technology and coordinated comprehensive patient care. This new partnership will facilitate learning, relationship building between the medical societies, their affiliated hospitals and members, and provide a better understanding of each party’s culture, communities, and norms.
"Signing an agreement with Philadelphia International Medicine will open the opportunity to our network of healthcare professionals to interact with peers in Philadelphia and for our patients to have access to more specialized treatments and opinions when needed. We are proud that we were chosen based on our Mission, Quality and great Patient Experience." said Juan Manuel Fraga Sastrías, Executive Director of Cancer Center Tec 100.
The MOU specifically covers four areas of on-going continued education including live, video conference seminars through PIM’s Global Education Media (GEM) program; physician medical education through the Physician Partnership Program (PPP); physician and consultant visits through conferences; and patient referrals and second opinions.
PIM’s Global Education Media program (GEM) will conduct a monthly one-hour teaching exchange focused on various specialties hosted by faculty from Philadelphia International Medicine’s hospital network.
PIM’s PPP program will give Cancer Center Tec 100's physicians the experience of coming to Philadelphia and being paired with a physician from PIM's network hospitals. During this time, they will become similar to temporary faculty by attending team meetings, rounds and observations at clinics and surgery. This one-week program will give Cancer Center Tec 100's physicians the chance to participate in an interactive peer-to-peer clinical development program as well as create relationships with other physicians, the community of Philadelphia, and other global participants.
