For many individuals around the world, accessing high-quality medical expertise and state-of-the-art facilities means having to travel from their home country. For these “medical tourists,” the challenge of finding the right care quickly – before a visa or permit expires – can be difficult.
PinnacleCare, the premier national health advisory firm based in Baltimore, Maryland, recently partnered with Atlantic Health System to ensure its Chinese clients have easier access to a comprehensive executive health program that provides a multitude of tests in one day.
Atlantic Health System’s Executive Health Program provides clients with a customized “smart” physical that results in a personalized wellness plan developed by a team of specialists. The aim of the exam is to evaluate and minimize health risks, promote wellness and discover potential health problems at the earliest stage when treatment is easier, more effective and less costly. The plan addresses nutrition, fitness, stress management and other indicators of disease risk. The health care professionals are able to act quickly to address emergent concerns and give patients a complete baseline of knowledge from which to work to improve their health. In addition, patients can receive preventative screening tests for early detection of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis and other conditions.
Under the partnership, PinnacleCare will provide select Chinese banks and their clients with access to Atlantic Health System’s Executive Health Program. That access gives those patients entrance into Atlantic Health System’s entire continuum of care, including world-leading clinical expertise in areas such as cardiology, neurology and oncology.
“The strength of our program is our ability to modify and adjust it to meet the needs of any patient,” said Damion Martins, MD, Director, Executive Health Program, Atlantic Health System. “We have put a tremendous amount of work into researching and customizing our screening to best suit the health care challenges that exist in any part of the world.”
“PinnacleCare provides our members with highly personalized care and guidance for all of their medical needs,” said Miles Varn, MD, Chief Medical Officer, PinnacleCare. “This partnership enables PinnacleCare to offer the same high-quality experience, with high touch services such as customized executive physicals, through vetted providers, such as Atlantic Health System, for these select clients when they visit the United States.”
The selection of Atlantic Health System follows the completion of an exhaustive search by PinnacleCare.
