The foundation TecSalud and the Mexican Hospital Consortium (CMH) signed a collaboration agreement to offer quality services and strengthen medical education and health systems in the country.

 

The agreement was signed by representatives from the School of Medicine and Health Science and the School Social Sciences and Government of Tecnológico de Monterrey, who were joined by representatives from the Mexican Health Foundation (FUNSALUD), the Corporate Coordinating Counsel (CCE) and the EGADE Business School.

 

TecSalud Rector Guillermo Torre stated that this collaboration aims to enhance the private sector’s efforts by training doctors. The collaboration will lead to the launch of a Health System Management program to train managers in the sector. The program will be offered by EGADE Business School. Mexico has almost 3,000 private hospitals performing over 2 million surgeries and 15 million consultations a year, according to INEGI.

 

These efforts hope to promote a better training of medical and administrative staff throughout Mexican health services. The program will be offered to medical professionals working in CMH’s hospitals and other private institutions and in the public sector. The agreement will pave the way for CMH hospitals to be incorporated into TecSalud’s educational programs.

 

According to Javier Potes, General Director, CMH, the alliance will strengthen medical attention offered in CMH’s 52 associated hospitals in 47 cities by integrating TecSalud’s high specialized services and cutting-edge medical technology.

 

“We are going to bring together two organizations, one that has been characterized by seeking accessibility to the health of the population, which is the case of the Mexican Hospital Consortium, and another that is identified by its cutting-edge hospital services and its impact on education, such as TecSalud,” said Potes.

 

The agreement will further drive efforts to strengthen the private health sector in areas such as public policy, said Torre. The allied institutions have stated they will continue to work in areas such as mental health, which has proven to become a pressing national issue as the pandemic has shed light on the prevalence of depression and anxiety across all age groups.
