“Medical Tourism: The Globalization of Healthcare”

It used to be said that all health care is local, but healthcare dynamics are definitely changing primarily because of cost and access issues. Medical tourism (also called medical travel, health tourism or global healthcare) refers to the rapidly-growing practice of traveling across international borders or state borders to seek health care. Over 50 countries have identified medical tourism as a national industry. Services offered can include joint replacement, cardiac surgery, dental surgery, cosmetic surgery, bariatric surgery, psychiatry, and Global Integrative Spa Medical Services.

Providers and customers usually find each other via the internet. Sometimes providers are not credentialed in the medical procedures they are performing and there is much less legal oversight. Participants will learn the origins and current trends in medical tourism; the impact of medical tourism on the US Healthcare industry (both positive and negative; patient profile of those participating in medical tourism; quality standards abroad compared to US standards; the disparity in legal standards and patient rights; and US hospital and healthcare strategies to maximize international healthcare opportunities, while minimizing erosion of their own beneficiary population.
