The Edison HEALTHCARE Difference...
Where people go for complex care can make a world of difference. Not all medical centers are the same. In fact, some are structured to practice care in a very different manner than over 95% of the medical centers in America.
We seek out the 5% of medical centers that are fundamentally focused on smart patient-care. These medical centers are Smart Care Centers and practice medicine in a team-based, data-driven and accountable model. As a Smart Care Center, they perform high volumes of complex surgeries with quality outcomes. In so many ways, they treat complex conditions the way you would want them too.
Edison Healthcare's specialty is handling situations in which higher quality care truly does cost less. As such, we are more selective than other healthcare networks and take the time to do the detective work necessary to select the right medical center for our patients. We specialize in delivering excellent and appropriate care to individuals facing complex spine, heart/valve, knee, hip, cancer, transplant surgeries and stem cell therapy.
We are not easily impressed with reputations and high ratings in popularity contests. Our team looks beyond the numbers to carefully evaluate each medical team and determines who is really providing the best care. How they think and how they make decisions. How they measure and reward team members. How willing they are to accept close oversight and to cooperate with other leading medical centers to share best practices. And, yes, we even determine how willing they are to charge reasonable, global case rates for their services.

WE DELIVER OUR PATIENTS THE BEST & SMARTEST CARE
When you are not feeling well, we know how frightening it might be to travel to an unfamiliar Place and Medical center.
That's why we are with you every step of the way to make sure that your experience is a positive one and you are cared for the way you should bE.
Often, we will be notified when your doctor recommends surgery, and will contact you. You can also call us on your own. Either way, an Edison Healthcare team member will explain the benefits of our program in detail and answer any questions.
A Smart Care Center will contact you to start your qualification process. During this process they may need additional medical records or testing from you.
Before leaving on your trip, you will receive a detailed itinerary of your travel and treatment arrangements. We will also provide you with a prepaid debit card for your food purchases and a special medical identification card to use at your Smart Care Center.
Upon arrival, your Smart Care Center's representative will meet you and help you easily get to where you need to be. The Smart Care Center's team will then meet with you to evaluate your condition.
Following the evaluation, a treatment plan will be recommended. If surgery is your best option, it will usually take place within a day or two of your arrival. If an alternative approach is recommended, new arrangements will be made and treatment may even begin immediately.
Once surgery has been completed and you've been discharged from the hospital (typically in 1-3 days), you will rest and recover at the hotel (usually another 2-5 days) until your follow-up appointment with your surgeon. At that time, the date for your return home will be confirmed.
The Smart Care Center Care Team will contact your local doctor to discuss follow-up treatment and therapy.
Your Edison Healthcare Coordinator will be available throughout your trip to answer questions and coordinate return travel arrangements. We will also check in with you after you arrive home to follow-up, discuss your treatment experience and assist with any other needs.
We believe that Every person can benefit from a unique, individualized care plan.
