The Growth of Medical Travel Industry
Medical travel as an industry is growing at an exponential pace with people increasingly choosing to go overseas for treatment. The reasons for people to travel to foreign countries for their treatment can differ. Some of the top reasons include unavailability of a treatment facility in their country, expensive treatment or procedure cost, and long waiting time to seek medical attention.
The Challenges for Patient’s Traveling Overseas for Medical Treatment
When looking for a treatment option overseas, there are hundreds of questions in the mind of the concerned patient and family members about choosing a destination, and the best hospital and specialist for the treatment of their loved one. Apart from making a decision, looking after the documentation and logistics can be taxing. Maintaining all information and important documents is another challenge that they face.
