Partnerships

The Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital has woven a dense partnership network enabling it to offer its patients the very best treatment conditions.

INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT COOPERATIVE ACTIONS

vignette video 960x540The Fondation ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital is a member of the philanthropic network of Edmond de Rothschild International Foundations, whose work around the world is aimed at promoting education, medical research, the arts and social entrepreneurship.

To fulfill the missions of this network, the Foundation Hospital has forged several partnerships with international development associations.

These partnerships are hinged around the following themes: sending equipment, performing surgery and training local medical and nursing teams in the head and neck field.
In this context, a special partnership has been formed with the Institut d’Ophtalmologie Tropicale d’Afrique in Bamako (Mali).

For these international cooperation programmes, the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital often collaborates with associations. These include Lions Club, TEO 2004 or Tunisie Demain.

COOPERATION WITH TEACHING HOSPITALS

The Foundation Hospital has an association agreement with the Ile-de-France University Hospital Centre (University of Paris VII - Bichat) allowing it to host university hospital practitioners and numerous medical school trainees (residents and medical students). The Foundation Hospital is also a member of the "Vision and Handicap" university hospital department attached to the Universities of Paris VI and Paris VII. Finally, the Foundation Hospital has specific partnership agreements in the field of ophthalmology with Rouen, Reims and Toulouse University Hospital Centres.

OUR SPECIAL PARTNERS

Among the numerous partnerships signed by the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital, three are of particular importance due to their content, their global character and their long-standing nature:H

COOPERATIVE ACTIONS PROMOTING PERMANENT AVALABILITY AND CONTINUITY OF CARE: THE FOUNDATION HOSPITAL AS A REFERRAL CENTRE

As a result of its "head and neck" specialisation and the quality of its technical facilities, the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital serves as a referral centre for numerous hospitals in the Greater Paris area.

In the field of neurosciences:

With its complete range of neuroscience specialities accessible round the clock, 7 days a week (neurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology, neuro intensive care, neuroradiology, neurology and neurovascular emergencies), the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital plays an important referral role in this field on a regional level.

In the field of ophthalmology:

With access to all ophthalmological specialisations (in particular, the Foundation Hospital is the only facility to offer a genuinely structured range of paediatric ophthalmology and eye and eyelid surgery services), the Foundation Hospital serves as a referral centre for several hospitals in the Greater Paris area.

COOPERATIVE ACTIONS DESIGNED TO PROMOTE COMPLEMENTARITY OF CARE

The second type of cooperative action developed by the Foundation Hospital is part of a strategy to promote complementarity with partner hospitals, so patients access comprehensive treatment planning. This work takes three forms:

Structuring patient care:

The first objective is to seek complementary referrals if one facility does not have access to all the treatment services required to manage a patient throughout his course. The following examples may be cited:

  • Agreement with the Institut Curie for the treatment of paediatric brain tumours;
  • Agreement with the Groupe Hospitalier Bichat/Beaujon and the Clinique Hartmann for the oncological management of ENT cancers;
  • Agreement with Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital for the oncological management of adult brain tumours;
  • Greater Paris cooperative health group for radiosurgery with Pitié Salpêtrière concerning the joint operation of a Gammaknife.

Optimisation of highly specialized niches:

The second objective is to develop cooperative actions targeting highly specific niche activities, with a national or international influence, seeking advanced clinical or research-related complementarities. The following examples may be cited:

  • Paediatric neurosurgery agreement with INSERM unit UMR 663 (childhood epilepsies and brain plasticity) and Necker Hospital's neuropaediatric centre;
  • Joint programme relating to the neurosurgical treatment of pain with Raymond Poincaré Hospital in Garches;
  • Medical and scientific cooperation for the surgical management of childhood epilepsy: agreement with the Sanbo Brain Institute in Beijing;
  • Collaboration between the Vision and Cognition Unit and Haddassah Hospital in Jerusalem relative to visual disorders and brain plasticity.

Structuring by type of care:

Finally, some cooperative actions are developed to ensure complementarity after hospital discharge: the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital remains a specialised surgical hospital which partners with appropriate downstream structures capable of providing specific "head and neck" care and gradually extending to out-patient indications:

  • Agreements with structures providing follow-up and rehabilitative care (SSR) with a neurological focus with the CMPR de Bobigny (physical medicine and rehabilitation centre) and the Clinique de Belleville;
  • Cooperative actions within a care network for specific conditions:
    • Agreement with the Saint Antoine LCD (combating pain) network for pain management;
    • Agreement with the Paris Nord oncology network.

COOPERATIVE ACTIONS PROMOTING THE POOLING AND OPTIMISATION OF RESOURCES

To promote the efficiency of our organisation and more effective allocation of resources across the health region, the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital has also developed a proactive cooperation policy based on the pooling of logistical, human, medical and technical resources in the north-eastern Paris area. Two examples can be cited:

  • Participation in the "Laboratoire des centres de santé et hôpitaux d’Ile-de-France" ("Greater Paris health centres and hospitals laboratory") health cooperation group covering the general laboratory analysis needs of several of the region's hospitals and health centres;
  • Creation of the "Imagerie des Buttes Chaumont" (Buttes Chaumont district imaging) economic interest group for the joint operation of a 1.5 T MRI scanner with private donors in the district.

COMPLEMENTARITIES WITH ASSOCIATIONS CLOSE TO OUR CORE "HEAD AND NECK" ACTIVITY

Maintaining awareness of the increasingly important role of patient associations in the healthcare system, the Fondation Ophtalmologique Adolphe de Rothschild Hospital wants to forge and strengthen links based on trust and complementarity with associations consistent with its "head and neck" specialisation. The associations include, in particular, France Parkinson, Retina France, Epilepsie France, Ouvrir les yeux (hereditary optical neuropathies), the LCD network ("lutter contre la douleur" or "combating pain") or Hemisphérotomie France.
The Foundation Hospital also has close links with associations aimed at improving the hospital environment and the quality of hospital care, such as Main dans la Main, the Robert-Debré association or Old’up. Several of these associations are represented in the Foundation Hospital's commission for user relations and quality of care.
