Healthcare is one of the most expensive endeavors in anybody’s life and individuals, ministries of health, governments and countries all appreciate its overwhelming cost and expense.
There are three main sectors in our society involved in the delivery of healthcare:
The Government (Public Sector) • The Private Sector • The User Sector (General Public)
Many systems throughout the world prominently feature one or two of these sectors in their healthcare delivery system and usually find it to be a daunting burden. For the past twenty-five (25) years, Dr. Conville Brown’s concerns insists on a tripartite partnership between the three sectors – government, private and user – to provide otherwise costly specialized healthcare to the public.
WHAT IS THE PARTNERED CARE MODEL?
The Partnered Care Model, developed and practised by Dr. Conville Brown from July, 1990, when he returned home to The Bahamas, having studied Medicine and specialized in Internal Medicine and Cardiology. Apart from the fact that most of his family, friends and countrymen would not have been able to access or afford his subspecialty services, the infrastructure to provide these services were wanting or outright absent, hence the Partnered Care model facilitates Hi-Tech Medicine that is Appropriate and Acceptable via Standards of Care, being made Available while increasing Access to ALL by making it Affordable via its Discounted Service System.
Partnered Care is a viable alternative for Governments (Ministries of Health) of developing countries to provide costly specialized healthcare to their populations at minimal expense and capital outlay. Partnered Care reduces the otherwise overwhelming burden of healthcare cost to governments, particularly in developing countries, by sharing the burden of care between the private, user and government sectors.
The Medical Pavilion Bahamas ensures accessibility to quality cancer treatment to ALL in the Caribbean via “Partnered Care,” a tripartite payment solutions system that allows all the centres of The Medical Pavilion Bahamas to partner with regional governments to cover the adjusted cost of advanced care for its citizens who are not covered by private insurance, and without any significant capital investment by said government.
