The Chinese Medical Program offers:

  • A highly competent, Chinese-speaking patient navigator who understands the language and culture of Chinese-speaking patients, and who helps them access the health and medical care services they need.
  • One-stop help assessing their needs, making appointments, arranging round-trip transportation, assisting with patient forms, and even providing accompaniment to treatments and interpretation, if needed.
  • Communication support – the navigator will keep in touch with each patient's referring physician to keep the doctor apprised of medical and treatment updates, enhancing the continuum of care.
  • Physician liaison services to help coordinate in-hospital care and provide translation/interpretation services and support.
  • Timely referrals and appointments for doctors and specialists, outpatient services and additional testing and treatments that patients might need.
