medical tourismAn Australian start-up company joined forces with a Chinese medical service provider and this collaboration could soon catapult Australia to the position of number one destination for Chinese “medical tourists”.

 
A Memorandum of Agreement has been inked between Coyiu, a start-up company backed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) and SunWo Medical Management, a Chinese company which provides medical tourism services to Chinese citizens on Wednesday.

 
As per the agreement, Coyiu will use its audio-video platform to perform digital delivery of medical consultations to prospective Chinese patients, who wish to get better quality medical treatment from outside of Asia.

 
SunWo’s Chief Operating Officer, Ben Chan, said the platform would result in many more medical tourists coming to Australia, as they would have a more comprehensive idea of their treatment.

 

Coviu Project Director, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, said the platform “usurps traditionally cumbersome video-conferencing systems” through the use of “multi-party, feature-rich video capability”.

 

“It supports the effortless sharing of data-hungry information such as high-definition medical imagery,” Pfeiffer said on Wednesday.

 
Australian doctors are considered some of the best in the world, with a number of leading specialists in health sectors such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, respiratory diseases and diabetes.
