LifeConnections Health Center
by Richard L. Peck, Contributing Editor

When information technology giant Cisco Systems creates an employee health clinic, chances are you’re glimpsing part of the future of healthcare delivery. The year-old LifeConnections Health Center, located at Cisco’s corporate headquarters in San Jose, California, features some of the company’s latest technology, with a facility designed to maximize its effectiveness. While the center offers traditional (and then some) ambulatory healthcare services-primary care, pediatric care, acupuncture, travel medicine, mental health, nutrition counseling, chiropractic, physical therapy, pharmacy, laboratory and radiology-its delivery methods are not traditional: automated check-in/check-out, wireless communications, living room-like care suites, flat-screen technology, teleconferencing and telehealth. Recently interior designer/planner Jain Malkin, CID, AAHID, EDAC, who accepted the design challenge this posed, and Cisco officials Sharon Gibson, Director of the Healthcare Practice in the Internet Business Solutions Group, and Pamela Hymel, MD, Corporate Medical Director, elaborated on the project for HEALTHCARE DESIGN Contributing Editor Richard L. Peck.

Maybe it’s happened to you: you need an expensive medical procedure, but you don’t have the healthcare coverage to pay for it. Whether it’s heart surgery with the price tag of a house, dental work or plastic surgery, medical care is very expensive in the United States. So what about countries like Belgium, Mexico and India, where you can get surgery at a fraction of the cost? It’s called medical tourism, but is it safe? Here are the pros and cons, and what you should consider before going abroad to get surgery.

Pros

1. Savings
The number one benefit is obviously significant savings. Take open heart surgery: in the U.S., you’ll pay upwards of $324,000, where in India, the surgery will cost you only $8,000. Extensive cosmetic dental work can set you back $8,000 in the States; in India, you’ll pay just $1,000.

2. No Wait
Where many procedures have waiting lists of a year or more, there’s little or no wait for medical care in many countries outside the U.S. For patients who are suffering (or worse, at death’s door), waiting can be excruciating, costing them time away from work and decreasing their quality of life.

Al final de la tarde, un ginecólogo espera a su última paciente…que no llega.

Después de media hora de espera, supone que ya no vendrá y decide tomarse un gin-tonic para relajarse antes de volver a casa.

Se instala confortablemente en una poltrona y empieza a leer un periódico, entonces suena el timbre de la puerta….

 Es la paciente que llega toda sofocada y pide disculpas por el retraso.

–          No tiene importancia – responde el médico.

–          Mire, yo estaba tomando un gin-tonic mientras esperaba. ¿Quiere usted uno para relajarse un poco?

–          Acepto con placer -responde la paciente aliviada.

Le sirve un vaso, se sienta frente a ella y empiezan a conversar sobre temas banales….

De repente se oye un ruido de llaves en la puerta del consultorio.

El médico tiene un sobresalto, se levanta bruscamente y dice:

¡Mi mujer! Rápido, quítese la ropa y abra las piernas..

Moraleja: En la vida todo es relativo…
