myMEDholiday.com, a leading medical travel site that provides in-depth information on the Medical Tourism industry, is adding to its robust catalogue of doctor, spa, and hospital profiles.
Bangkok, Thailand -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2013 -- Now, not only will users be able to research and contact facilities in popular healthcare destinations, they will be able to reach out to firms known as medical tourism companies, or medical tourism agencies, who are in business to assist travelers with their medical holiday plans.
Medical tourism companies or facilitators offer patients a turnkey solution to the logistics of traveling abroad for healthcare, operating in much the same way that traditional travel agencies did before the boom in internet booking sites. They provide medical tourists with an array of important services, including secure transfer of medical records, free quotes on the costs of care, consultation with hospitals and clinics, financing options for medical and dental procedures, details on passport and visa requirements, ground transportation to-and-from airports, travel insurance, accommodation, and even tourist services when patients have free time at their destination.
myMEDholiday.com provides patients with the tools to research hospitals, clinics and doctors and even find a spa, and offers information about medical treatments ranging from organ transplants and stem-cell therapy to anti-aging treatment and plastic surgery. In addition, the site’s users can contact healthcare facilities directly by using an interactive tool which allows them to send inquiries to, and request quotes from, specific medical providers in Thailand, India and Singapore.
Combining this vast coverage of the industry with the addition of a medical tourism company directory sets up myMEDholiday.com as a one-stop shop for medical tourists.
“Our vision is to provide an all-inclusive portal for medical tourists,” a spokesperson for the firm said recently. “Making available a wealth of information about healthcare providers, treatments and facilities is only one piece of the puzzle. Some patients also need someone who has knowledge and experience to help them make it all happen, and medical tourism companies are the answer. They are vital to the industry’s success and the success of the patient as well.”
Would-be medical tourists who are researching their options and deciding on moving forward with a trip abroad for more affordable healthcare are now able to use myMEDholiday.com from start to finish.
