These days it seems like every country in the world promotes itself as a haven for medical tourism. The reality is that in most cases they offer sub-standard facilities and limited skills/qualifications.
India has tens of thousands of skilled physicians and nurse practitioners. Over the last two decades, the economic boom in India has led to the building of medical facilities & infrastructure that rival the very best that western medical care that the west has to offer. Many of the physicians that practice in these hospitals and clinics have returned (to India) from the U.S. and Europe, leaving behind successful practices.
While some small countries may be viable as alternatives for minor surgical procedures, India is the only mainstream option that offers a comprehensive solution for any and all medical needs, and does this with the highest levels of service, facilities, and professional skills. A complex transplant or bypass procedure can be achieved for a tiny fraction of the cost for the same procedure in the U.S.
This lower cost includes significantly longer post-operative care in the hospital itself. The costs are usually a lot lower than even the deductable most insurance companies levy on a patient.
Easy Tours has strong working relationships with Escorts Group Hospitals and Research Centers and Apollo Group Hospitals and Research Centers. This ranges from relationships with the top doctors and nurse practitioners to the board members and administrators of the institutions. This allows us to facilitate the highest levels of service combined with the very best medical treatment possible.
From the moment that a client contacts us and tells us what their medical needs are, we become their guide, liason, and coordinator. We serve as a conduit of information between the client and the hospital/clinic and work with the client to determine the best facilities and staff to handle their particular medical needs.
We then handle all of the details that require contact with the providers. The patient will, of course, be able to speak to the hospitals, doctors, and other providers, but they need not worry about all of the mundane tasks which need to be performed prior to their departure.
We have a U.S. and India based staff of specialists who focus on Medical Tourism, and stay abreast of all current developments in their respective fields. They work closely with our leisure travel specialists and are able to coordinate explorations of India’s (and other Asian countries) major tourism attractions. These can be facilitated for a vacation for the patient and/or their travelling companion(s).
A very important aspect of medicine is the recovery phase. It has been statistically shown that patients recover more quickly and with a much higher success rate when they incorporate practices that enhance physical, mental, and emotional well being. Your client can take advantage of one of Easy Tours’ optional extensions that include the world’s best guided regimens of Aryuveda, Yoga, and Meditation, which speed healing and bring the mind and body together as one.
The emerging world of medical tourism is one that must be tapped into by successful travel agents. Most people who are considering it as an attractive option have already sold themselves on the idea, but have no idea how to make it happen. Likewise many agents may feel as though they have been struck by lightning when asked about medical tourism by a potential client. This does not have to be the case.
A close partnership with Easy Tours will take the mystery out of the process, and convert that person who, “thinks it might be a good idea”, into someone that understands the incredible advantages that Medical Tourism offers, and is confident enough in the process to make it happen.
