Currently, the healthcare sector is being transformed in different ways. For instance, not only wealthy and super-rich people are utilizing concierge medicine, the moderate moneyed people are also looking for higher quality care than is often traditionally available.
Also, medical tourism is a booming sector altogether. This is the domain of travel where people crisscross one country to another to receive medical treatment. For example, people often travels from less developed countries to get superior medical care in developed countries. But now, many people are traveling all through the world to get less expensive medical care. An increasing number of healthcare institutions and practices are keen to take advantage of medical tourism. Some are focusing on the wealthy, and others are aiming on a broader audience.
At the same time, a rising number of healthcare institutions along with concierge medical practices are welcoming crypto currencies whole-heartedly. To quote Peter Sasaki, managing member of CGS Associates and an expert in the field, “The protected nature of blockchains has the potential to be a superior way to access healthcare throughout the world. It’s not just about the price and potential appreciation of a crypto currency. It’s more about the security available because of blockchains.”
