Clinical Collaboration

Joslin establishes clinical affiliations with like-minded partners, aiming for major impact through care delivery. Joslin has a proven model and detailed methodologies that facilitate center development.

What do you need? How can Joslin help?

Development of a new center

In some cases, a group of clinicians, administrators or investors have a dream of a diabetes center, to better serve the population with exceptional care and service in a financially sustainable way.

Solution: Joslin can work with you in several phases.

  • Assessment
  • Design and development
  • Implementation and launch
  • Ongoing affiliation and support

Clinical affiliation with an existing program

In some cases, an existing clinic or hospital sees an opportunity to improve processes, business metrics and clinical outcomes, through learning and support from experts and through licensing the use of the leading brand.

Solution: In such cases, the planning phase is much shorter, as we work to help the clinic establish best practices in patient care, education and business operations, customized to the local environment and culture. Together, we work to ensure that Joslin’s standards of care and business operations are met.

Affiliate relationships are typically long-term contractual agreements.
