Cleveland Clinic and Mexican healthcare company Previta have announced a partnership to provide an international second opinion option for addressing the medical needs of patients.
Cleveland Clinic, which integrates hospital and clinical care with research and education, offers patients access to worldwide physicians and specialist networks to provide quality care.
Under the latest programme, Previta doctors will be able to collaborate with experts at Cleveland Clinic to review complex cases, thereby creating a personalised treatment plan for patients.
It is part of Cleveland Clinic’s continued efforts to ensure expanded access to quality care for patients globally.
Cleveland Clinic International Operations chairman Curtis Rimmerman said: “The collaboration with Previta will enable Cleveland Clinic specialists to provide peer-to-peer consults to our clinical partners and their patients in Mexico.
“Peer-to-peer consults can be a valuable resource in complex healthcare situations. This partnership will unlock access to more than 3,500 Cleveland Clinic physicians across advanced subspecialities, without the need to travel abroad.”

Working with the patients, Previta’s care team will collect and submit all the necessary information, which will be reviewed by Cleveland Clinic physicians.
Previta co-founder and CEO Morgan Guerra Gea said: “Quality medicine has no boundaries and medical collaboration between professionals around the world is the way of the future.
“Giving access to top specialists from Cleveland Clinic to our patients will improve their health outcomes. We are very excited to provide this new service that will benefit Mexican families and who knows maybe in the future all around the world.”
The local representatives of Cleveland Clinic facilitate care for patients, with their in-depth knowledge of the latest available clinical treatments, and have 24/7 access to patient services worldwide.
They can connect patients to Cleveland Clinic care available at locations across the US, Toronto, Canada, the UAE, and the UK.
In addition, they can arrange second opinions where available, along with follow-up appointments and in-person treatment at a Cleveland Clinic hospital.
Last month, Cleveland Clinic and Japan-based Canon Medical formed a strategic research alliance to advance medical imaging solutions.
