360 Solution for Patients
Patients welcome the rise in Global Medical Provision
Medical tourism has been practiced for centuries, but only used to be available to the privileged and wealthy. Over recent years, with the internet communication revolution, and the availability of inexpensive air travel, the rise in the number of patients seeking treatment or surgery abroad has been swift.
There are a number of reasons more and more patients are choosing to go abroad for medical treatment. These include a lack of quality medical treatment at home, long waiting times for specialist treatments or the high expense of local medical care.
Patients have come to realize that high quality medical care is widely available for them in a host of other countries. Not only can they access top-of-the range medical care in some of the best hospitals and clinics in the world – but they can also enjoy the benefit of recuperating in exceptional settings. This means being able to take in the fascinating sights and cultures in countries from Brazil to Israel to Thailand, Singapore, Turkey, etc. once treatment has ended.
The range of medical procedures and treatments available is virtually unlimited too, with the option to benefit from a comprehensive care package from initial consultation, surgeries, ambulatory treatments, right through to post-operative/treatment care.
Transparent and Fair
Before committing to any particular medical provider, potential customers will do some serious research and compare services and prices. This will naturally include investigating the safety and quality of the medical services that various medical centers offer, the prices for different procedures, and the extra services offered. All of which is easy using the internet, not only through the information presented on the medical establishments' websites, but also in blogs and forums, which display reviews, criticism and testimonials of previous patients.
Most of the medical establishments today offer a variety of touristic services, which address and take care of all the patients' non-medical needs, from travel arrangements, to accommodations, to tours of the country, and medical escort, etc. With information so readily available, patients can easily receive price quotes and make an educated decision.
