St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) August 13, 2008
Six Points Media, a direct marketing and operations firm created to meet the growing needs of international hospitals that want to reach Americans with limited health care options, celebrated its official launch today.
"With fewer and fewer Americans able to afford health insurance, traveling abroad for healthcare has quickly become a viable alternative," said company founder Paige Michaelis. "Approximately 150,000 Americans traveled abroad for medical procedures in 2007, resulting in an incredible opportunity for international health care providers to increase their patient base. Our unique approaches to personalized marketing and operational streamlining can assist providers in expanding their bottom line and taking advantage of this opportunity."
Independent surveys have revealed that most Americans have never heard the term "medical tourism", nor have they considered the option of medical care abroad. "They had largely chosen healthcare providers based on referrals from trusted friends and family in their communities," said Michaelis. "Demographics also have shown that Florida, where we are based, maintains one of the highest concentrations of baby boomers in the United States - individuals who may need information about the highest quality and most affordable medical care outside the U.S." "By building relationships through a variety of distinctive channels, Six Points Media can educate potential patients as to the benefits of seeking medical services in foreign countries, and about the international healthcare companies available to help." Most importantly, Six Points Media's personal approach can increase a patient's comfort level which, in turn, can aid in their medical recovery and lessen their stress level during the information process.
