At the outset, the report provides a brief description of medical tourism – a trip abroad by a patient to avail medical treatment. It can range from anything between a bypass heart surgery to a breast implant. Patients usually travel for medical treatments as it is cheaper for them to get it in another country than in their own. It enables them to get more personalized care without being financially squeezed. Also the quality of treatment and expertise of physicians matter. For complicated conditions, people often need to travel elsewhere where more trained doctors are present to diagnose and cure them. The market is also taking off on account of capitalization of the internet to generate awareness about various healthcare facilities, their staff, and the treatments they provide.

However, many developing countries where treatment costs much less, often lose out in the market for medical tourism on account of the lack of proper healthcare infrastructure. Another factor posing a challenge to the market is the visa issues and complicated reimbursement policies for overseas treatment. A noticeable trend in the market is the large number of patients from the U.S. travelling to other developing nations for getting a proper treatment. This is because healthcare is expensive in the nation. Another prominent trend in the market is the growth in international accreditation which helps patients to make judicious decisions and round-the-clock online and other assistance by hospitals.
