Much has been written about medical tourism - millions of people flying from country A to country B for cheap medical treatment. Everyone thinks they know the top destinations, reasons for travelling and current direction. These ‘facts’ are repeated every time a journalist discovers medical tourism, or when people are trying to sell their conferences or consultancy services, or politicians seek to justify a plan.
Few of these ‘facts’ are now accurate as medical tourism has settled in certain patterns and is going in new directions. Few of the countries regularly claimed as market leaders are now the top ones. Some of the most successful countries are the least noisy, and often not dependent on the myth of huge cost savings.
A major new independent report “Medical Tourism Facts and Figures 2012” by Ian Youngman takes a look at what is happening in the world of medical tourism, and gives guidance as to where the future lies.
