This latest Satori blog shares the factors affecting the development of medical tourism particularly in the United States.

Medical tourism, or global healthcare, refers to either the act or the process, or both, of acquiring medical care beyond the borders of a patient’s country. Supporting medical tourism is a matter of choice for all parties involved (i.e. physicians, healthcare providers, and patients) and is mostly encouraged in cases when the surgical procedure cannot be carried out in any of the local medical institutions, thus the need for traveling abroad to treat special and severe medical conditions.

Satori World Medical boasts of its innovative Business and Care Model, which is founded on four core pillars of excellence, ensuring that every patient obtain the Satori experience: the all-in-one medical travel package comprising quality care, health & shared wealth program, world-class customer service, and companion care.

A report from Deloitte, an independent business consulting firm, shares some emerging trends in the U.S. healthcare industry that can fuel the development of medical tourism. Among these trends is the increased demand for outpatient surgery. According to studies, as of 2006, 35 million people had outpatient surgery, made possible by the technological advancements of the recent years. This can be used to the advantage of global healthcare companies, including Satori World Medical, by rendering clients the opportunity to save more in outpatient surgeries, doing away with out-of-pocket payments.

The increased coverage and demand for dental surgery is another factor that may boost medical tourism. According to the report, a significant proportion of dentists will retire over the next 20 years, thus causing an imbalance in the ratio of patient to dentist. This impending problem can be used by global healthcare companies to further promote medical tourism by specifically aiming at dental services.

Another factor that may affect medical tourism is low-cost global transportation, which is now offered by major airline companies, and can be a viable inclusion in the treatment packages that the global healthcare companies provide.
