Medical tourism is defined as an act of travel of patients from their home country to other destinations for availing medical services. Rise in healthcare costs in developed countries coupled with the availability of high quality medical services at a low cost in developing countries have given a boost to the medical tourism industry. These medical services range from elective procedures such as cosmetic surgeries to complicated surgeries such as cardiac, orthopedics, neurosurgery and others. Significant growth in this industry is due to economic developments in developing countries that in turn has led to the growth in the medical industry and quality of medical services.

Rise in the healthcare expenditure in developed countries coupled with in the growing elderly population has also contributed to the growth of the medical tourism across the globe. Economic crisis in the U.S., increased the number of uninsured population, consequently further triggering the growth of this market. Recently, there are approximately 50 million uninsured Americans that are willing to travel abroad for affordable and quality medical care. Globalization and improved communication technology act as a catalyst to boost the growth of this industry.

The development of medical tourism industry is based on several factors such as reduced cost of procedures, long waiting time and high demand for cosmetic surgeries. Medical travel is not only witnessed for intricate procedures but is also expanding due to growing demand for cosmetic and dental procedures since these are usually not reimbursed under regular health insurance policies.

Patients traveling abroad can save from 30% to 90% on a procedure, including their travel expenditures, as compared to the medical costs in their own countries. Long waiting time is another factor which has substantially boosted the growth of this industry. Patients based in Canada and U.K travel to low cost destinations for their treatments in order to avoid long waiting periods in their own countries and receive timely access to serious ailments.

Rise in healthcare costs in developed countries coupled with the availability of high quality medical services at lower prices in developing nations has primarily surged the expansion of the medical tourism industry. Moreover, rise in elderly population along with growing number of uninsured population has further triggered the market growth. Patients are traveling abroad not only for cosmetic surgeries with a quick recovery, but also for sophisticated cardiovascular surgeries. Many countries plan to leverage medical tourism as a strategy to boost their healthcare services and tourism industry. By encouraging its presence in the medical tourism market, a country can stimulate its economic growth and create employment opportunities. Consequently, the medical tourism industry is rapidly expanding and is anticipated to have a significant growth in the near future.

Factors such as medical specializations, geographic proximity, portability of health insurance, and reputation of the country are some of the main reasons that compel the patient to move to another destination. However, factors such as problem in follow-up care, medical malpractice and others could restrain the growth of this market.

Nucleus Medical Media and Gwinnett Medical Center Launch New Healthcare Website Featuring Animated Patient Discharge Instructions

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 19, 2013

Nucleus Medical Media, Inc., the Internets leading creator of 3D medical animations, and Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville, Georgia, have launched a new patient education website featuring animated patient discharge instructions.

The Caring for Yourself After Surgery site features videos on seven common topics, including checking blood flow in the arms and legs, caring for surgical drains, and removing a Foley catheter. Gwinnett Medical Center uses the site as a resource before surgery and after patients are discharged from the hospital.

Gwinnett Medical Center PACU Clinical Resource Nurse Pamela Bear says the discharge animations are helping both families and her fellow nurses, Families state they feel more confident after watching the videos and like being able to access the website to reinforce the instructions after they have returned to their homes. Nurses feel the videos actually make their job easier. After the family and/or patient have reviewed the videos, discharge instructions have more meaning for the patients and their families.

Along with detailed 3D animations and narrations, each video features a downloadable PDF with comprehensive instructions and images to reinforce patient understanding of post-surgical care. Like the animations, the companion PDFs were created strictly following the principles of effective patient communication and health literacy.

“Our goals were to improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes,” said Lynne Sycamore, Patient and Family Education Coordinator with Gwinnett Medical Center. “First, our staff shows patients the discharge animations in the hospital and follows it up with a teach-back session. We discover what questions they have, and ask patients to explain the content in their own words. Afterward, patients receive a printed handout with a link to the website so they can review the material at home.”

Sycamore believes video animations help patients understand information since they can pause, rewind, and watch parts again. “It’s a beneficial element because often, when patients leave our care, they’re still feeling the effects of anesthesia, or they may be on pain medication. Patients may not remember everything we’ve told them. If they prefer the paper form, they can follow those instructions, and if they need more direction, they can go back to the website and watch the animations again,” she says.

Ron Collins, CEO and Cofounder of Nucleus Medical Media believes the website will help reduce hospital readmissions. When patients receive more health information before, during and after care, they are more likely to comply with medical treatment, he says. These narrated medical animations are perfect for health literacy because they require no reading and have moving graphic demonstrations of how to perform key tasks related to aftercare.

Big News For Big Loser Wannabes: Health Travel Technologies Offers Free Live Medical Webcast on New Minimally Invasive Device-Free Restrictive Gastric Plication

San Francisco CA (PRWEB) February 05, 2012

Will the gastric pleat beat the gastric band for restrictive weight loss surgery results? That’s a topic on the agenda for the Health Travel Technologies live medical webcast on Friday February 10th at 12:00p PST.

The webcast is free for patients interested in learning information about the latest minimally invasive bariatric procedure to treat obesity, the gastric plication.

According to Health Travel Technologies director of patient information services Debbie Natsch, the gastric plication webcast series was developed with the input of the worlds leading obesity surgical team, including gastroenterologist surgeons, physician nutritionists, hospital administrators and bariatric nurses.

Natsch said the webcast provides participants with detailed information about the weight loss procedure, including a review of existing patient data from various clinical studies, as well as an opportunity to have questions answered by the medical team.

In the past nine months weve had more than 1400 participants in our webcast series, said Natsch. Its a great way for patients to learn about the specifics of a surgical procedure: everything from how the surgeon determines eligibility, to expectations for weight loss and life style changes after the procedure.

The gastric plication webcast is also a great way for participants to learn how the medical exchange system works; most patients are not intimately familiar with the very high level of quality and services accessible through medical exchange programs.

The word plication means to pleat which describes the method of stomach restriction. The gastric plication involves a specialized suturing technique to restrict stomach capacity without the need for resection, implanted devices or surgical stapling.

The gastric plication weight loss surgery is performed laparoscopically, with patients hospitalized for 24-48 hours.

The gastric plication webcast is part of the weekly Patient Education Series sponsored by Health Travel Technologies, a Silicon Valley-based health information technology company specializing in cloud-based global patient referral and management applications.

According to Natsch, many surgeons find the gastric plication notable for its expected lower risk of complication compared to the more invasive gastric bypass and vertical sleeve gastrectomy procedures, while demonstrating similar weight loss outcomes.

Weve had a strong response to the gastric plication program, shared Case Director Marci Mauro. We have a robust roster of happy patients who demonstrating excellent weight loss and remission of many obesity complications, including type 2 diabetes, said Mauro.

According to statistics published by the American Diabetes Association, 26 million Americans are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, with another 79 million classified as pre-diabetic. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the US and is linked to an increased likelihood of kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, and cancer diagnosis and death.

Type 2 diabetes has also been linked to lower lifetime income and professional opportunities.

One of our own bariatric medical exchange Case Managers has had weight loss surgery with a Health Travel Technologies obesity surgical team, led by one of the worlds leading gastroenterologist surgical teams. We know first-hand that the gastric plication medical travel program is first-rate, said Mauro.

About Medical Exchange International Health Care

The American health care system is broken, Health Travel Technologies CEO Herb Stephens points out. Health insurance premiums and out-of-pocket costs have skyrocketed, often forcing people to defer necessary medical treatments, or hold fundraisers just to afford them.

Health Travel Technologies offers Americans form the uninsured to t the underinsured to self-insured employers – a chance to easily access affordable health care for both essential and elective procedure with some of the best medical providers in the world, said Stephens. Usually at a savings rate of fifty percent or more.

The practice of global patient medical exchange (also called medical travel, medical tourism and health travel) has become increasingly common as US health insurance costs continue to outstrip growth in workers wages.

The benefits of medical travel are being sought by self-insured US employers seeking to reduce the cost of employee health care benefits. A study by the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that the annual premium for family coverage through an employer increased 9% last year to $ 15,073.

Health care really is a global market place now, said Stephens. Its a great opportunity for Americans to make their medical dollar stretch farther, especially in a weak US economy with high employment uncertainty.
