Treatment provided in India from accredited facilities at par with any developed country in the world at a much cheaper cost is giving medical tourism a competitive advantage over many other countries.

Experts say that digitization of the health industry will also make flow of foreign patients easier in the upcoming time.

To quote Sanjay Agarwala, Medical Director of Hinduja Hospital, “With the integration of surplus talent, technology, tourist attraction, trade and tradition, India is a potential place to promote itself as a Premier Global Healthcare destination and enable streamlined medical services.”

Growth in medical tourism and healthcare delivery industry will enhance employment opportunities besides benefitting pharma and medical equipment industries. The Indian medical tourism market is expected to more than double to reach $8 billion by 2020. Currently, Bangladesh and Afghanistan dominate the Indian medical value travel with 34 per cent share.
