Medical tourism or unnecessary risk taking?

We have talked enough about the role and benefits of medical tourism. We have also cautioned about the consequences of recklessness by the patients in the pursuit of finding that best deal surgery. In my professional experience, I have seen many clients complaining about the price of the JCI accredited hospital vs that medical facility just across the border. Many times, I find myself amused and feeling sorry for the patient, when my marketing guys bring up the issue. I have some times called the cheap surgery patient and asked them the name of the hospital. Many prospective patients don’t even know the name of the hospital. In few instances, I can’t even find that hospital (if you can call that) on the Internet. Some times, I insist on getting to the bottom of that information. Often, the receptionist can’t speak English, they would scramble around to find that English speaking person after 10-15 painful minutes, I will be granted the opportunity to speak to that “marketing executive”. When I politely ask her about the size of their hospital it is generally less than 10 beds. When I ask them about complications, the standard answer is “We don’t generally see complications in our hospital”  Really… Give me a break.




I understand that we are in tough economic times and money is in short supply. But still it is too much risk to take. Just 1% increase in the surgical infection rate is normally enough to wipe off all potential savings. We realize that some patients are OK. But don’t we go by statistics in medical profession? How can we prevent these snake oil traders from destroying more lives? We can’t blame them alone. They can’t obviously force the patients to have surgery without their consent..

      This write-up is very detailed. I was sierchang at the exclusive suggestions you shown here. But could you truly clarify something mainly because I was a bit mixed up? I didn’t quite discover the exact ways to genuinely put everything to use. Maybe I’m just overcomplicating it in my mind? Possibly the whole thing remains new to me. I do not genuinely know. Possibly I may have to appear forward to subsequent posts you would be writing on this same topic matter.
