The International Patient Series

As part of Medical Tourism Connection’s pledge to the betterment of services and the advancement of the global healthcare industry, we are publishing the answers to many of the questions asked to us by medical facilities and providers on a daily basis.

The educational material provided in our newsletter is a great way to obtain answers to the questions medical facilities that have, or will make, the decision to join the global healthcare industry.

It is our hope that by providing meaningful and useful knowledge, in an open way, it will assist the current facilities, future facilities and providers of the global healthcare industry in achieving the ultimate goal of helping the global healthcare patient.  This goal, our goal of providing support, encouragement and nurturing to the industry is the same as yours; reach out to the patients in need of quality healthcare service and provide a reliable and accessible path to quality care.

The following questions are previews to some of the topics that you can look forward to being addressed in our upcoming facility newsletters.

What a U.S. Patient really thinks when they hear about treatment is available outside the U.S.?
