Satori World Medical: Primer on the AMA guidelines for medical travel

August 24, 2012

In all its dealings, Satori World Medical zeroes in on its primary focus: to provide its patients with world-class care from state-of-the-art facilities around the globe; which is why Satori’s Chief Medical Officer, Ron Johnson, M.D., F.A.C.S., together with the Medical Advisory Board, unfailingly monitors and evaluates its procedures and processes, ensuring that everything falls in accordance to the established Standards of Excellence set by various accrediting and medical organizations. This practice does not limit itself to the medical practice however, as Satori maintains its strict abidance to the Guidelines on Medical travel as stipulated by the American Medical Association (AMA), safeguarding the patient’s inherent right to equitable access to quality healthcare.

In this light, Satori World Medical upholds the following practices:

• Patients are only referred to institutions accredited by recognized accrediting bodies such as the Joint Commission International.
• Prior to travel, follow-up care with a local provider is coordinated by Nurse Patient Advocates (NPA) to provide for continuity of care.
• Patients are informed of their rights and legal recourse prior to traveling. This includes a discussion on procedure fees and may include personal accident insurance.

• Patients are provided with access to physician and hospital credentials (i.e., licensures, accreditations, and outcome data).
• Patients are subjected to a stringent procedure eligibility screening test. When necessary, patients are informed of potential risks in the process of combining surgical procedures with long flights.

By adhering to these standards, Satori World Medical affirms its enduring partnership with the AMA in shaping a healthcare future that is better for patients, physicians, and the nation.
