MEDICAL TOURISM

“India is immerging as major medical tourism destination in World”


Health Care + Tourism = Medical Tourism


India-history speaks for the nation. Known for its diversity and culture, India is fast becoming popular as a Medical destination. According to reports over last few years the medical tourism in India has increased by 30%. More and more foreigners from across the world are coming to India for a better and cheaper treatment. India's medical tourism market will be worth some USD 2 billion a year by 2012 compelling the Indian Government to introduce a new category of medical visas for foreigners to facilitate their stay in India. The visa issued to the patient and an accompanying caretaker, could be extended up to three years.


Elish Healthcare has been experiencing a steady rise in the number of patients from the United States, UK and Arabian countries. "Even with airfare, the cost of coming to India for treatment is much cheaper, and the quality of services are better than that found in the US / UK.


Medical tourism is a term that has risen from the rapid growth of international healthcare where people from all around the world are traveling to other countries to obtain general medical surgery, cosmetic plastic surgery and dental surgery at a fraction of the cost of healthcare in their home country. And, while abroad, if physical conditions permit, patients can experience the interesting cultural attractions their destination country offers. Overseas surgery is quickly becoming a safe and viable option to healthcare in the United States and Canada.

Medical Tourism Process


The typical process is as follows: the person seeking medical treatment abroad contacts a medical tourism provider. The provider usually requires the patient to provide a medical report, including the nature of ailment, local doctor’s opinion, medical history, and diagnosis, and may request additional information. Certified physicians or consultants then advise on the medical treatment. The approximate expenditure, choice of hospitals and tourist destinations, and duration of stay, etc., is discussed. After signing consent bonds and agreements, the patient is given recommendation letters for a medical visa, to be procured from the concerned embassy. The patient travels to the destination country, where the medical tourism provider assigns a case executive, who takes care of the patient’s accommodation, treatment and any other form of care. Once the treatment is done, the patient can remain in the tourist destination or return home.
