Global medical tourism needs to overcome barriers

Published on : Monday, January 16, 2017

medical-tourismMany issues within the medical tourism industry can be overcome with greater communication from all parties. With the election of current U.S. President Donald Trump, there is intense speculation about healthcare in the U.S. Most of these discussions focus entirely upon modifying or changing the current system, which is under lots of uncertainty. These discussions do not recognize Medical Tourism as an element to advance healthcare in the United States and globally to achieve stability. Global tourism for medical purposes is becoming more popular as an alternative to domestic services within a country. The reasons for anyone seeking medical facilities as inbound tourists are quality of service, costs, specialized services etc. Most Medical Tourism programs are a direct result of government efforts. While some programs are private, there are others indirectly influenced by government regulations such as Visas, as well as language, hospital capacity, regulations, etc. Due to increased revenue, most countries want foreigners as clients. The primary decision for a foreigner to visit for medical services is usually based upon quality. Quality of services differs among different countries as it relates to their standard of education and care. The current status of Medical Tourism is a very competitive field.
