Harvard program links CCA with Vietnamese healthcare leaders
June 20, 2017 § Leave a comment
A Harvard-sponsored program to help improve healthcare disparities in Asia has linked up with CCA to provide insight on how to provide high-quality care to underserved populations. Earlier this month a team of Vietnamese Fellows from the Southeast Asia Initiative and the Cambridge-based China Medical Board took part in a home visit with a patient who receives care through CCA. Here, some of the Fellows observe as CCA nurse practitioner Phuong Phan conducts an exam on a CCA member at the member’s home in Medford. Phan has been providing home-based care for the woman for many years, helping her maintain an independent lifestyle while being treated for a variety of chronic conditions. The Vietnamese Fellows are hoping to learn from CCA’s model in order to help improve care for high-risk patients in Vietnam and other parts of Southeast Asia.
