We quickly look at Asian travel destinations. This gives you a brief overview of what is available and a starting point for deeper research.
Hong Kong is a special administrative area of the Republic of China that has allowed it to maintain a high degree of autonomy in all internal matters such as economics. and culture. SAR transmits the medical prescriptions for centuries-old British crown community. There are 12 UK private hospitals accredited by QHA Trent, many of which have double accreditation with JCI. The costs are rather low, and government spending keeps 20-23% of US spending. A medical-government association has made concerted efforts to increase the role of medical tourism in Hong Kong. Currently, the beds are approx. 7% are occupied by medical tourists, this percentage is increasing rapidly. No visa is required for stays of 180 days.
India is a major player in medical tourism, welcoming more than one million medical tourists each year. Unlike many countries, India offers a wide range of medical services, heart surgery, joint replacement, bone marrow transplants and other advanced procedures. At present, 10 major hospitals have received Indian JCI accreditation, and the Indian government is actively promoting international accreditation and improving medical infrastructure problems that are currently hampering the growth rate of medical tourism. Medical costs in India are the lowest in the world at 10-20% of US prices. The most popular democracy in the world, India, has a healthy economy and extends to a huge geographical and cultural diversity. A visa is required for entry but can be reliably readily available.
Malaysia will soon receive nearly one million medical tourists a year on its shore. The country speaks great English, and the medical facilities have a strong internal accreditation body, the Malaysian Ministry of Health. In addition to national accreditation, better hospitals in Malaysia are also seeking international accreditation. Medical facilities are mostly concentrated in Kuala Lumpur, sometimes in the most beautiful cities in Asia. On average, medical costs in the United States are around 25%, depending on the low value of the ringtone. Medical services range from the onset of cosmetic surgery to increasingly serious diseases.
The Philippines, which consists of thousands of beautiful tropical islands, is growing at about 8% per year as a destination for medical tourism. There are close cultural, economic and political links between the Philippines and the United States, which can increase the role of the Philippines as a medical tourist destination. American health professionals have been a major part of the Philippines, reflecting a solid tradition of medical training and culture. The Philippine Government's goal is to attract about 750,000 medical tourists each year, soon to be reached. Health costs in the Philippines are about 20-25% of US prices.
Singapore has the best healthcare system in Asia and one of the best in the world. The long-term goal of medical tourism (about one million medical tourists a year!) Providing health services to international patients is a primary goal of a multi-agency government industry partnership. Medical tourists come from Asia and worldwide. Medical costs are not the lowest, on average about one third of US prices, but Singapore's clean, safe, cosmopolitan city where English is widely spoken adds to the cost. More and more Singapore hospitals are receiving international accreditation, with more than a dozen JCIs accredited since 2006. Due to the climate of a constant tropical rainforest, Singapore is happy to announce every season.
Thailand is perhaps the most active medical tourism destination, receiving about two million medical tourists each year. In 2005 alone, more than 50,000 American patients were treated by a hospital with an average of about 30% of the US medical system. Almost all medical procedures are available in Thailand. Although many Thai doctors and kindergartens are trained in the United States or the UK and have professional qualifications, the Thai government does not emphasize the role of international accreditation of hospitals. However, some of the best private hospitals have received JCI accreditation.
