Over the past century, many medical institutions in the United States have established themselves as world-class centers of excellence offering some of the best treatment available in terms of cancer treatment, neurosurgery, orthopedics, heart surgery, and cosmetic surgery. Whether it is medical research, education, training, innovation or implementation of highly complex procedures, the United States remains at the cutting edge of medicine and leads the way for much of the world to follow. In terms of ethnical codes and accountability, there is no other country with such stringent requirements as the United States. Although the US also has some of the highest healthcare costs in the world, there is no doubt that for complex procedures, difficult diagnosis or rare medical conditions, the US leads the way for providing quality medical and surgical treatment.
According to a report examining medical tourism trends worldwide by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, the United States in 2008 received more than 400,000 inbound medical tourists and spent almost $5 billion for health services. Inbound medical tourists to the United States are primarily from the Middle East, South America and Canada. Motivations for medical travel to the US usually involve seeking care for services unavailable in their home countries. International patients represent approximately 3.5 percent of inpatient procedures with an annual grow rate of 3 percent per annum for international patient inflow to the US.
“We definitely want to include the United States to our directory, because as one of the worldwide leaders on the cutting edge of medicine, the United States offers some of the best medical education and training in the world, producing many of the best doctors. The United States leads the way for research and best practices in medicine with many outstanding world renowned medical institutions,” says Jidapa Julakasilp, Managing Director at myMEDholiday. “We are including the United States because of its capability to treat some of the most advanced medical conditions and the wide variety of treatment options available.”
