What is Global Medical Tourism?
The Global Medical Tourism is the first membership based international trade magazine for the medical tourism and global healthcare industry made up of the top international hospitals, healthcare providers, medical travel facilitators, insurance companies, and other affiliated companies and members with the common goal of promoting the highest level of quality of healthcare to patients in a global environment. Our company promotes the interests of its healthcare provider and medical tourism facilitator members. Global Medical Tourism has three tenets: Transparency in Quality and Pricing, Communication and Education.
Global Medical Tourism seeks to provide transparency in both qualities of care and pricing. Every day we see more and more that the globalization of healthcare has created a very flat world. We exchange technology, information, communication, physicians and patients. In order to ensure patient safety, it is our goal to create a transparency about the quality of healthcare that can be found in each country. With this, it is increasingly important to create a transparency in pricing as well so patients traveling overseas for care can be sure of what they are receiving without hidden costs or unforeseen expenses. Global Medical Tourism is also working on the Quality of Care Project, which will change the way we look at the reporting of global healthcare statistics and the quality of care available at hospitals around the world.
Global Medical Tourism agree that communication is the key to success, particularly with respect to ensuring positive patient outcomes. Each member of the Global Medical Tourism has agreed to put competition aside and work together to resolve the issues one by one and to work together to address them as they arise.
Although we live in a world where information is at our fingertips, there are so many people who lack the information that they can receive the highest quality of care outside of their home country. Some patients in countries like the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom have a lack of access to healthcare due to high cost and high wait times. Patients in some other regions as in some parts of Africa and the Middle East do not have access to high quality of care in their own country and need to look elsewhere. Some patients just would like to travel outside of their country for healthcare to incorporate high quality of care with a holiday and tourism. Regardless of the reason, patients need education and information to understand what they should look for in finding a provider overseas and considerations that should be taken seriously to ensure patients’ safety. As insurance companies continue to incorporate global healthcare and medical tourism options into their benefit plans and domestic healthcare providers are required to treat patients for aftercare when patients return to their home country, education is required to accomplish this seamlessly. Global Medical Tourism strives to provide education to anyone with any interest in this industry using various means: the media, conferences, and throughout all of our Global Medical Tourism Magazines.
