U.S Medicine Partnering in Asia

A collaboration formed by the Cleveland Clinic https://myclevelandclinic.org and the Luye Medical Group https://wwwluyemedical.com/en is going to bring patient-centered healthcare to the Shanghai New Hongqiao International Medical Center. The international partnership enables patients to connect with Cleveland Clinic’s leading-edge technology through the use of distance health technologies.

The Shanghai government according to the “Healthy Shanghai 2030” report, will establish a cluster of clinical specialty groups by 2020 and develop a Science Technology Innovation Center by 2030.

In another development internationally, the Johns Hopkins Singapore International Medical Centre (JHSIMC) is working with the NHG-Johns Hopkins Singapore Institute. Now the researchers will be able to enhance collaborations, develop new capabilities in medical oncology, and also share knowledge on projects.

JHSIMC has transitioned to Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) https://www.ttsh.com/sq in order to integrate care for patients and focus on the population health needs for Singapore. TTSH is one of Singapore’s largest multidisciplinary hospitals, with 45 clinical and allied health departments plus 16 specialist centers.

In addition, the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) https://www.ohsu.edu is working to centralize a global footprint in Southeast Asia by establishing a hub in Bangkok Thailand. OHSU’s presence in that part of the world will enable OHSU to send inter-professional teams of healthcare providers and researchers to the area to assist in tackling regional priorities and at the same time, raise OHSU’s profile.

OSHU’s partnership with Bangkok Hospital https://ww2.bangkokhospital.com and Mahidol University https://mahidol.ac.th links OHSU with the largest private hospital system in Southeast Asia. The hospital system encompasses over 42 hospitals throughout Thailand, Cambodia, and Myanmar, plus Mahidol University which includes medical, nursing, dental, pharmacy, and public health schools.

OHSU will be able to provide opportunities at all partner institutions in Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar in priority areas such as emergency medicine, dentistry, healthcare leadership, informatics, infectious and non-communicable disease research, nutrition, nursing leadership, occupational health, ophthalmology, pediatrics, preventive cardiology, rehabilitation simulation, plus in additional specialties.
