What is Medical Tourism:
Medical tourism, sometimes called medical travel or healthcare tourism is not a new concept. Centuries ago, when there were few qualified medical specialists, people used to travel hundreds of miles to seek better medical treatment. With the advent of technology and advanced transportation systems, medical tourism has become an industry today. People travel for fun or business, but there are people who travel to seek better medical advice and treatment when it comes to their personal health and critical illness. However, with the advanced healthcare technology, fast internet, more sophisticated equipment, video streaming and healthcare systems like EMR, EHR, HIS, PACS etc, initial traveling can be avoided if only consultation or second opinion is needed. This not only saves huge cost on the side of patient, but also reduces travel burdens and time spent to seek opinion.
However, if a patient needs actual treatment, surgery or hospitalization in critical illness or for the sake of cosmetic surgery, traveling is inevitable. International Medical Tourism (IMT) can help reduce initial traveling cost and time through our second opinion service and live consultation (video conferencing) with one of our network Board Certified specialist to assess the medical condition and further plan of action as deemed necessary. Radiology Imaging interpretations are provided using our secure platform where the patients can upload their images and medical history for a second opinion. Live consultation & video conferencing with one of the specialists in the United Sates can be arranged using facilities in any of our affiliate hospitals in the Middle East.

Need for Medical Tourism:
Healthcare Industry is still not mature in the Middle East. As a matter of fact, many countries still do not have basic medical facilities to cover their population and some of the countries still lack sub-specialty consultants to address medical care of huge population. Lack of practical knowledge and advanced medical equipment is another reason why some patients prefer to get treated outside their countries. Sometimes patients need a more personalized medical care which is not available in the Middle East countries due to huge population and less number of qualified doctors. One of the other reasons why medical tourism is growing is the fact that many multinationals and large enterprises give their employees option of getting treatment through qualified physicians outside their country. International medical insurance coverage also facilitates many patients to get more advanced treatment or surgery options through their affiliate hospitals in the United Sates.
Nonetheless, in critical illness, transplants, sophisticated surgeries, or a more personalized care of life-threatening illness, many patients choose to get treated in the United Sates provided they can afford the treatment options and or covered by their international medical insurance. IMT provides medical tourism on highly competitive prices and affordable cost through its huge medical network inside the United States. International Medical Tourism offers personalized care, and turn-key solution for most of the medical care options in shortest possible time as whatsoever, patient comes first in our ideology of medical care.
