FOR THE ENTIRE SOUTH ASIAN COMMUNITY.
INTRODUCING A COLLABORATION
El Camino Hospital and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation have established an alliance combining their strengths and expertise to benefit patients and the local community across a continuum of health care services.
A prime example is the collaboration between the South Asian Heart Center at El Camino Hospital and the Palo Alto Medical Foundation (PAMF). Together, they are working to raise awareness of the elevated risk of heart disease and diabetes in South Asians. They are striving to provide more comprehensive, coordinated care including in-depth medical services, as well as lifestyle management.
PAMF patients who are receiving medical supervision can now be seamlessly referred to South Asian Heart Center’s AIM to PreventTM for advanced screening, lifestyle counseling and ongoing coaching. PAMF will continue to provide expert medical management for their South Asian patients as electronic medical records are now shared between the two organizations, making communication quick and easy.
