About the Medical tourism Association® Destination guides
For decades, travelers have trusted destination guides for information
such as culture, language, gastronomy, tourism activities, currency and a highlight
of things to do in the destination they visit. Currently, as a result of the high
cost of healthcare, limited access to high technology and specialized surgical technique
among other factors, patients are finding themselves looking for alternative options
for treatment, many times, outside of their local community, state and even country.
As nearly 100 countries around the world embrace the medical tourism industry, the
Medical Tourism Association® has launched its Destination Guides program as a commitment
to education, with a focus on consumer awareness. The Medical Tourism Association®
Destination Guides provide an exclusive focus on a destination, country or city
with detailed information about the quality of healthcare in the destination and
the healthcare infrastructure found in that region, including wellness and preventative
healthcare options as well. The key function of the Destination Guides is to empower
medical travelers with knowledge on the industry and provide a step by step set
of guidelines to take into consideration when traveling for healthcare and/or wellness.
The Destination Guides are structured to educate consumers and take them through
their medical tourism decision making process; from the moment they begin to research
a destination, they will know what to look for. The key function of the Destination
Guides is to empower medical travelers with knowledge on the industry and provide
a step by step, set of guidelines to take into consideration when traveling for
healthcare and/ or wellness.
Additional features of the Destination Guide include instant free access for prospective
medical tourism patients. Patients can download our destination guides from MedicalTourism.com
(one of the highest rated websites for medical tourism on the internet), MedicalTourismMagazine.com,
and/ or MedicalTourismAssociation.com. The print edition of the guides may be available
through Amazon.com™, iTunes, and/or other merchants for worldwide distribution.
The guide is also available for download on to your Nook or Kindle eReader.
A recent Medical Tourism Association® survey found that almost 73 percent of medical
tourists researched their information on medical tourism online. The guide will
include information on hospitals, clinics, medical spas, wellness centers, hotels
and tour operators for patients. The Medical Tourism Association® Destination Guides
also feature tourism information for patients with full color photos to go along
with the tourism information to help establish expectations and includes helpful
tips for patients and their companions during their medical stay.
