Medical Tourism in India
Tourism has transformed its meaning in todays world. Medical tourism has evolved as its better subsidiary. India was one among a few countries to recognize the potential of medical tourism for which it is the leading destination for global medical tourists today. In 2004, India received 150,000 medical tourists approximately and the number went up by a whopping 33% to 200,000, inbound medical tourists in year 2008. It is expected that by the year 2015, India will receive over half a million patients annually.
This has not come unexpectedly but there are serious efforts behind this phenomenal achievement. The government in the country is supporting this industry by assisting hospitals in acquiring the JCI accreditations and awarding funds for renovations and additions. The government in India is leaving no stone unturned to improve both the private and public medical sectors in the country.
There is no myth that India’s private medical sector offers the most advanced medical treatments and technology available in the world today. Patients can come in and enjoy deluxe accommodations and be treated by the finest doctors who have western medical training, at very affordable prices. And if all this isn’t enough, after receiving medical treatment and recovering, patients are free to keep travelling and enjoy a vacation in India and the countries surrounding it as India is located in the heart of South East Asia. In addition to this, patients usually don’t face any communication barriers as most of the population in India speaks English.
