美国MD安德森医院真的那么神么?

Jay Remark:
Good idea, just need some 3rd party data to support this claim.

中国癌症病五年生存率40.5%
美国癌症病五年生存率60%
安德森癌症病五年生存率80%以上

安德森始建于1941年,是美国癌症治疗的权威机构,大部分癌症的五年生存率达80%以上,美国平均水平也只有60%。而据中国国家癌症中心全国肿瘤防治研究办公室发布的数据,中国癌症病人的五年生存率为40.5%,这是全世界癌症病人最后的希望。

安德森医院是如何治疗癌症的,和中国有何区别?

更多的药物选择

美国有更详细的癌症分子分类和更多的药物选择,这可能会导致晚癌的治愈率更高。这些靶向药和免疫药,比起化疗来讲,通常不会引起那么多的副作用。

安德森癌症中心作为美国治疗癌症的权威机构,包含很多全美新药临床试验,因而可以用到最新的药品,这给其他国家无药可治的患者提供了最后的希望。

更快的药物批准

中国的科研基础比美国相对薄弱,研发水平也存在较大差距。中国食品药品监督管理总局(CFDA)批准的药品已经批准的药物通常比美国食品和药物管理局(FDA)批准的药物晚几年。

美国研发的不少癌症新药未在中国上市。 从患者的角度来看,可供选择的新药数量有限。

更先进的治疗技术

另一方面,美国医生训练有素,会成立联合诊疗小组,并提倡多学科(MDT)联合诊治; 尤其是安德森等著名癌症医院的专家主任,在诊断和治疗各种癌症方面有着很高的技能,并且善于利用先进、创新性的方法增加了患者生存的可能性。

此外临床医生,和药物研究人员之前的密切合作使新药和治疗方法能更快的投入临床使用,为患者提供先进的治疗技术。

美国MD安德森癌症医院在哪里?

MD安德森癌症中心,是全美排名第一的癌症中心。位于美国的德克萨斯州的休斯敦, 其接诊病人其中不乏各国的政要和商业精英。例如韩国首富三星集团前董事长李健熙于2000年因肺癌至安德森癌症中心接受手术和后续治疗。

How Do I Get A Medical Appointment? (as a Patient from China)  

If you have friends or family in USA:
1. Get their help to queue on your behalf.
2. Without enough time and effort, they should be able to secure an appointment after a few attempts.
3. Send them your key information and reports (personal identification, travel documents, existing medical records)

If you don’t have friends or family in USA:
Option 1. Get a medical coordinator to arrange the trip for you. (Medebound provides this service)
Option 2: Get a remote treatment or remote 2nd Opinion without leaving the country. (Medebound specializes in this service)

What Is Process To Get Treatment from 美国安德森癌症中心

What if you can get the similar outcome

But without leaving the country?

How To 不出国门 while still Getting The Best Treatment In The World

What Is Remote Treatment:

Jay Note:
I’m using the term “Remote Treatment” instead of “Remote Diagnosis” or “Remote 2nd Opinion”. Because:
1. To receive treatment is the ultimate goal of the patient. They don’t want just the information and doctor’s opinion.
2. Medebound is able to help them through the entire treatment process
-We help them translate their existing diagnosis before sending it to MD Anderson
-We help them get an appointment much faster than if they do it themselves
-We help them get a remote diagnosis / 2nd opinion (which is required before the doctor prescribes the treatment)
-We help them procure the medication from USA to China
-We help them translate and pass the treatment instructions to patient’s local caregiver / doctor
-We help them send recovery updates to MD Anderson and pass the latest instructions from the doctor to the patient
-We help them stay informed once there is new information or developments regarding their illness

“We help you through the entire process without leaving the country”

-Is this the best option?
(No, leaving the country is the best, but not everyone can do so. Financial restrictions, physically unable to travel)

-How do I get the medication?

-Will China hospital able to perform the treatment using imported medication from USA?

-Who should consider this option?

-What are the additional benefits of Remote Treatment?

一部分患者可以先国际远程会诊评估后,如果有先进治疗方法,再考虑赴美(而不是盲目赴美)。  作为国际患者,千里迢迢赴美之前,更为明智的做法是也先考虑一种欧美比较常见的远程看病模式。即是安德森癌症专家的线上视频会诊/二诊(案例见下),先获取专家的详细治疗方案。 通常这一步(对比赴美去安德森进行现场评估拿方案的话),可以节省至少20-30多万赴美费用,并且1周内就可在家中完成。

海外的医疗费用可能很高, 而且出国看病远离故土,患者可能存在较大的文化和语言差异,如果赴美就医获得顶级专家待遇的门槛很高, 那么只有少数人会得到。  我们的价值主张是:一切以患者为中心,不过度医疗

美国安德森癌症中心治疗费用:
在安德森治疗需要多少钱?

国际患者赴美就医到MD安德森癌症中心,其费用组成为:

检查和拿方案费用
– 首次到安德森,需要先进行2-3周的病情评估,包括各项检查,拿到方案后才开始治疗。 如果只是做全面检查和评估拿到治疗方案,大约~20万人民币;这个费用不包括任何治疗费用。 

治疗费用
– 2周评估检查完成后可以拿到详细的治疗方案,如果患者打算留在安德森治疗,平均医疗花费约100-300万人民币。也有一部分患者会带着方案回国治疗。

中介费用
– 考虑赴美的患者不少会考虑使用比较昂贵的中介服务,各项细节的服务通常价格在10-20万。但不少客户也考虑自助申请,那么差旅住宿费用也需要考虑其中。

中国患者到去安德森看病后悔了么?

[Jay note: Patients regret trying to arrange the medical trip themselves]
Regret 1: “It is almost as if they don’t want to help me”
This is the most common negative feedback from China patients. The reason is because the hospital system in USA is very different from China. In China we can walk into the hospital and see the specialist during the same day. However, top USA hospitals such as Anderson requires patients to secure a medical appointment (including paying a deposit) and submit all relevant paperwork and medical records days or weeks in advance.

But you don’t have to endure this inconvenience. Medebound has the connections and expertise to help cancer patients from China get medical treatment in the shortest time possible.

 

 

 

[Jay note: Patients regret depending on family members to arrange the medical trip]
Regret 2: “I thought having family members who are USA citizen means I’ll get a pleasant treatment experience”

While China and United States are both large countries, the difference in local culture and medical procedures varies greatly between each state. So unless you have family members in Houston (Texas), chances are you’ll be facing similar challenges with someone unfamiliar with the USA. 

Medebound is the family member that you can depend on for help, without the need to return the 人情. We’ll assist you all the way from before you leave the country to completing treatment, and even during your next visit (if it is necessary)

Our services include: arranging the flight, accommodation, and hospital procedures, to selecting Chinese caregivers, interpreters, and nutritionists. This is so patients from China can rest and recuperate in the best condition possible.
