Global Medical Tourism Facts and Figures 2015

Aug 05, 2015, 14:10 ET from Research and Markets

DUBLIN, Aug. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Medical Tourism Facts and Figures 2015" report to their offering.

6 billion people travel for medical treatment from one country to another, and if you add in those who travel a distance within a country - it exceeds 10 billion a year. For 2015 the widely respected annual report on medical tourism facts and figures has had a makeover to put medical tourism into context.

This report puts medical tourism back into the context of what local healthcare offers, what compulsory and voluntary health insurance covers - the drivers of inbound and outbound business. Although full regulation is far off, more countries are bringing in regulation on who can offer local medical tourism, or becoming tougher on what agencies and others can say on adverts.

This massive report is the result of over a decade of research and collecting information on the subject and a perfect antidote to the guesses and estimates that have been transformed into Internet facts.While some countries are doing very well out of medical tourism, others have struggled to compete or even get started.

Medical tourism is often wrongly promoted as a magical formula to solve local healthcare, tourism and economic problems; while there is a backlash against dangerous surgery, and an increasingly vexed debate on the effect on local healthcare. oo many countries and businesses have lost money by going into medical tourism without doing proper research on competitors and potential customers. This report is essential for anyone entering or promoting medical tourism.
