Importance of Medical Tourism

With the advent of globalisation, the world has shrunk into a global village. Countries now appear closer than they have ever been. The concept of medical tourism was devised to help global citizens enjoy their tourist sojourns while under cost-effective, world-class quality medical care. Over the last decade, India has emerged as the preferred destination for medical (healthcare) tourism, capitalising on its strengths of lower cost skilled personnel, cultural factors, natural endowments and unique forms of medicine.

Some of the main factors contributing to the growth of Medical Tourism include :

  • Higher Costs
  • Long Waiting Lists
  • Medical Insurance Policies In Some Developed Countries
  • Stringent Visa Regulations Which Makes Treatment In Some Countries More Difficult
  • Strain On Healthcare Infrastructure

We also realise that providing superlative medical care is essential. However, providing such medical care is rarely possible without a sound understanding of the different cultural backgrounds of medical tourists. Non-verbal communication, which is influenced by culture, is also an important part of diagnosis. Further, a good cultural understanding can help in speedy patient recovery. We firmly believe that a satisfied patient is the best source of referral to the hospital.

Medical tourism is a provision of `cost effective` private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical or other forms of specialized treatment.

Medical or health tourism has become a common form of vacationing, and covers a broad spectrum of medical services. It mixes leisure, fun and relaxation together with wellness and healthcare

Medical tourism in India is one the best options available to people across the globe. Millions come every year to get treated and then enjoy their recuperative holidays across India. People from different walks of life cut across the entire span of the globe come to India to have their treatments done with peace of mind.
