Fascinating Facts about Singapore Medical Tourism

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The speed at which Singapore’s towers and amazing sights rose up the Island to wipe off its ancient history remains a wonder to the world. Though a small nation with about six hundred and forty square kilometers, Singapore stands out as a powerful nation in Southeast Asia. There are amazing facts about Singapore medical tourism and they are as follows.

1. Brief history of Singapore

Singapore has an interesting history beginning with its discovery in the third century by a Chinese account that pointed it at the tip of the Malay Peninsula. In the fourteenth century under the rule of Srivijayan prince Parameswara it became an important port and subsequently became the heart of India-China trade.

2. Early years of Medical Tourism in Singapore

For over two decade, the medical tourism in Singapore has tremendously grown. In 2011, the receipt from foreigners who had gone through medical tourism added up to nine hundred million dollars. This figure has grown exponentially over the years. In 2012, according to business consultants RNCOS, India, Thailand and Singapore had a combined market share that was greater than ninety-three percent. Singapore became a choice destination of many ahead of Thailand because of their constant upgrade of medical facilities.

3. What to know when going to Singapore

Singaporeans are bilingual but they have four major languages – Tamil, Mandarin, Malay and English. Most speak English which is seen as a language of business but the national language is Malay. It is still okay to carry out a brief research on the hospital you intend to visit to be sure the staff and surgeons understand English because Singapore employs the best brains from across the world.

4. Boost in Singapore medical tourism

Singapore government invested heavily into health care to get it at the stage where it is now. Singapore healthcare system is integrated with a blossoming airport that is world-class. Also, the cost of healthcare is cheaper when compared to similar process in the west. As of today, Singapore hosts up to seven hundred thousand medical tourists. In 2014, Singapore built a new medical facility that is merged with a 5-star hotel which means that patients will eat and get every other treatment like they were in a hotel.

5. Specialties of Singapore hospitals

Singapore hospitals carry out diverse surgeries but transplants (liver and kidney) remains the one that is mostly sought. Other services rendered by Singapore hospitals include bariatric surgery, cardiology, dental care, eye surgery, neurology, orthopedic and skin care. Singapore keeps expanding their boundaries so don’t be shocked when you look at the list sometime in the future and discover it has grown.

6. Future of medical tourism in Singapore

With over 500 foreign doctors being employed annually, the end of the growth of Singapore healthcare is still far off. The Singapore government has also announced huge investment in the medical sector this 2016 which would explore areas such as nutrition.

No doubt, there is no country that has combined tourism well with health like Singapore has done. In 2011, report has it that thirty percent of those that traveled for medical tourism worldwide went to Singapore. With the massive investment from the government and private sector and the ultra-modern equipment constantly purchased, Singapore is fast becoming a medical hub.

6 Factors That Has Pushed Up Migration of People to Visit the Best Doctors

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

The past decade has witnessed a steady growth in the number of medical tourists globally that travel to seek health care outside their home countries according to various international reports. Medical tourism is a behavior usually associated with the elites in the society but there are other salient factors which push up this trend and they are as follows:

1. Media

With the ease of access to the internet, everyone has suddenly become a journalist and rummaging of the internet for materials is on the rise. On the internet and various other media, some doctors receive a hype that places them as demigods. This draws attention from readers and listeners who would tend to do all it takes to visit them if they have similar problems. Some countries would crown themselves as the best in provision of a particular healthcare to lure medical tourists. For example, Hungary tags itself as world dental capital. As far as this gimmick is concerned, it has been a success judging from the number of foreign medical tourists that head to the country yearly to get dental care.

2. Obsolete and neglected healthcare

A country that has delayed healthcare will lose the trust of her citizens and the next thing that would happen is that her citizens will begin to travel to other countries to seek better healthcare. Likewise, when a patient is undergoing treatment from a doctor and there seems to be no improvement (‘guessing medicine’ they may term it), the next step the family would probably take is to move the patient to another facility or country.

3. Health policies

Some health policies are making it costly for patients to receive treatment in their home country, like the Obamacare. Much of the hike in cost of healthcare has to do with health insurance policies. Natives of such countries with harsh healthcare policies or weak medical insurance would seek for doctors from countries that have more relaxed policies and cheaper healthcare.

4. Luxurious treatment

It is not a rumor that some countries give priority to treatment of medical tourists, obviously because of the economic gains. Everyone wants to be treated like royalty and when such information goes out to the public, there is no way many people would opt to have a taste of it especially when they are buoyant enough to pay the price.

5. Several external factors

Other factors hinged to medical tourism like transport has a role to play in the upward or downward flow of medical tourists. If there are incentives on flight tickets, it will encourage more people to fly and medical tourist might just seize the opportunity to fly as well. On the other hand, if flights should jack up the price of their tickets, it would discourage some people from flying.

6. Inefficiencies in local healthcare

When people cannot hold their doctors responsible for a failed healthcare which they foresee as negligence on the part of the doctors, they would seek for a better alternative where the doctors can be held accountable with a vibrant legal action.

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is a globally booming business. Patients beyond borders put the figure of Americans that underwent medical tourism as of 2014 at 900,000 while globally; the figure was more than twenty million. This accounted for more $20 billion in revenue globally. However, some countries play host to more medical tourists than the other.

Milder health policies also attract medical tourists from countries with strict policies. There are two main reasons for medical tourism; the first is to get quality healthcare while the second has to do with cost. Based on these reasons, the countries that have become the major destination for medical tourists are Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, India and Turkey.

1. Health Sector in Thailand backed by the Government and Diversified Economy

The financial woes that hit the Asian giants close to two decades ago forced them to diversify their economy. Thai government invested a huge amount in the health care sectors and opened up the door for public-private partnership which further led the sector to a vibrant money spinner. Bumrungrad International Hospital in Bangkok reported that they attended to about 1.2 million patients. Medical Tourism Research Guide reported that more than thirty thousand Americans visit Thailand annually.

2. Malaysian Medical Tourism Flourishes with Multifarious Facilities

Though a small neighbor to Thailand, Malaysia still witness huge amount of medical tourists (up to five hundred thousand) annually. Malaysia followed Thailand to diversify her economy after the global financial crunch. Her vast amount of land and tourist sites have been one of the factors that attracts Arabs because they will have space to pray. Some of their strongest point is in vitro fertilization, burns and cosmetic surgery at more than twenty percent off what is obtainable in Europe. Thailand health insurance allows patients to seek medical care in Malaysia because of lower price.

3. Singapore Emerging as a Famous Medical Tourism Hub

Singapore ranks as one of the countries in the world that rose fastest from the ground and also runs one of the freest economies in the world. They specialize in cancer treatment. WHO has ranked Singapore the best healthcare giver in Asia and they also came sixth in the world. Though their rates are higher than you will get in the previous two, but the standard is not comparable while you also get to feed your eyes on breathtaking artifacts.

4. India Provides the Cheapest Healthcare Ever

Indian medical tourist comes mostly from neighboring countries with like Myanmar, Pakistan, Bangladesh and so on with health care that is far below what is obtainable in India. It also offers a relatively cheaper healthcare compare to US. The major cities that get most of the horde are New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai. Deloitte predicts that the number of medical tourists to India will double in coming years.

5. Overseas Patients like Turkey for Professionalism

Turkey is the perfect combination for wellness and recreation. Majority of their doctors trained in America, bringing home their experiences to make the country a favorite for US and Europe medical tourists. Turkey is the best for eye care treatment.

No matter the country you may decide to head to, be certain they are accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) whose role is to identify and share best practices and regulates standard practices globally.

Steps in Planning Plastic Surgery Abroad

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is becoming a booming business in Asia especially in several countries like Thailand and Malaysia who used it to grow their economy. The attraction to these Asian countries has to do with the cheaper prices which are often 50 to 70 percent off from what is obtainable in Europe and United States. It is not enough to save up the money for the surgery; you have to do some research to be sure of your safety where you are going. Your research finding should be centered on the following heads;

Research into the history and records when selecting a hospital

There will probably be more than one hospital that can handle the intended surgery in your destination country. How then will you be able to pick the best out of these lots? All it takes is a research into the history and records of the various hospitals. With digital technology, this should be easy to find on the internet. Reviews and success stories from people who have been there and back will also be helpful.

The hospital should have enough Medical Facilities

Look at some of their medical facilities and compare them with what is currently in vogue. That is probably the best way to predict your safety. Outdated medical facilities are clear signs of not being serious.

Go to confident and qualified surgeons

Every hospital department has a Superintendent or Chief Surgeon. Find out the head of the surgeons in the hospital you intend to visit and have a discussion with them. Through such discussions, you will be able to observe their level of confidence through their tone. It will be best to put a call across to them because that is when you can easily access their tone. When you use mail, take note of their response time. If it takes long for them to respond to your query, it is a sign that their services are also questionable. Also find out if the surgeons are duly accredited and their level of certification is satisfactory.

Go through a travel agency

For a country you have never been before, the best thing to do is to go through a travel agency. It will be the duty of the agency to provide and accommodation and secure your flight tickets once the agreed fees has been settled.

Learn the dominant language or translate it

Always find out the dominant language in your destination country and see how you can either learn it or get a translator if you foresee it to be a barrier in communication.

Seek transparency

Nobody prays for disaster but what happens if it comes knocking? How far does your right allow you to seek redress? These are some of the questions you should seek answers to. Also find out if there have been incidences in the past and how they were addressed – if they were ever addressed.

Prepare your Post-Surgery plans

It would take a few days or weeks for you to bounce back to your feet depending on the type of surgery you had. It is necessary to put this in consideration while planning so you do not incur extra cost of traveling to your country and back for medical checks.

What Makes Some Hospitals in India Top for Obesity Surgery

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is becoming a revenue boom for countries with high quality healthcare systems. India is one of such countries that see influx of people from all over the world seeking medical attention for a number of reasons.

Effect of India’s Medical Policy on Medical Tourism

India is becoming more favored destination for US citizens because it is cheaper and has less ambiguous medical policies. The high cost of US medical services has a lot to do with her legislation on health. One prevailing health challenge is obesity. It accounts for a high number of deaths annually. There are a number of hospitals that offer obesity operations in India but low cost remains a common factor among them.

Highly experienced doctors for performing difficult operations

India has a large number of experienced doctors because of the following reasons:

1. Indigenous Medical School

India has grown her medical school over the years, which has led to her churning out medical students of high reputation.

2. Number of Indian doctors in Diaspora

A report put it that thirty-five thousand Indian specialists practice in the United States. The Indian physicians in diaspora often return home to practice after acquiring knowledge from the best hospitals and schools in the West.

3. Hiring of Professionals From All Over the World

India hires world class physicians giving the resident ones opportunity to learn from the best.This leads to diffusion of ideas which will make the home grown physicians highly versatile in their chosen field.

How is Obesity surgery carried out in India?

One of the surgeries to curtail obesity is known as Bariatric surgery. This kind of surgery has various forms of which Gastric bypass is a crucial part. Gastric bypass is done such that food no longer goes into certain areas of the stomach and small intestine where active absorption takes place. In the end, you will feel full with less. This operation is recommended for extreme cases of diabetics because it will help the patient to curtail his/her diet. With state of the art facility and trained medical personnel, this operation is successfully carried out in India.

Reason for Increase Medical Tourists to India

As a fast developing nation, India relies heavily on foreign investment to boost her economy and the easiest way to attract foreign interest is to provide an alternative that is cheaper in price but of unbeatable standard. The lower exchange rate of the rupee to the USD and GBP is another topic of discuss altogether. The lower exchange rate makes it a preference for countries with weaker currencies because it will cost them less while low income earners from US who cannot afford the huge medical expenses in their country look for a country with medical practice at par with theirs – and the odds will always point to India.

In fact, Medical tourism to India is an interesting feat because it combines both wellness and recreation as India has a lot of tourist attraction sites. Medical tourism to India has also received a boost from private healthcare owners who outsource for tourists from other countries.

Malaysia Set to Diversify her Medical Tourism Services

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

Medical tourism is one of the most prospective sectors of Malaysia economy and it is getting an upward push as the demand for standard private health care service continues to grow across the world. Having imposed herself as a choice for global medical tourism destination, Malaysia is set to deviate from rendering only health services to promoting other wellness procedures.

Foundation of Medical Tourism in Malaysia

Malaysia government began to think of ways to diversify her economy when the July 1997 financial meltdown hit East Asia. This led to formation of The National Committee for the Promotion of Medical and Health Tourism (NCPMHT) in January 1998. Since then Malaysia has been marching forward with the gradual development in medical sector to make herself a reliable hub for medical tourism.

Marked Development in Malaysian Medical Tourism

A number of factors have favored Malaysia as a medical tourism destination in comparison with her long souring neighbors like Thailand. Firstly, the government policy in Malaysia plays a vital role in the rapid development in medical tourism. The Malaysian government gives tax incentives to investors. This has encouraged private healthcare providing medical tourism to partner with internationally recognized bodies on medical tourism to develop world class healthcare facilities with the right standards that would make them attract tourists.

Reasons behind the Soaring Number of Medical Tourists in Malaysia

The figures on the amount of medical tourists that visit Malaysia in a year are usually a collection of figures from Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) accredited medical facilities (MHTC was set up in 2009 by the Ministry of Health). Records of registered patients with foreign passports are categorised into medical tourists. The irony of this figure is that it may not really represent the intentions of the visitors because transient travellers, migrants, people travelling for business, expatriates, those visiting a family member or friend but falls sick in the process will fall into the list medical tourists. Hence, the real medical tourists are always less than the total number.

How Malaysia can Increase her Medical Tourists

Though Malaysia has outstanding infrastructure in place, she needs more health care resources, specialists and professionals, health care workers and so on to bridge the resource gap. The nation’s 5 years blueprint tagged The 11th Malaysia Plan expected to run from 2016 to 2020 shows the government will focus on making three key regions as health care hubs namely Penang, Malacca and Johor Bahur (this is a scaling down from the initial regions the project began with; Penang, Malacca, Selangor, Sarawak, and Johor Bahur).

Expansion of Source Market

80 percent of Malaysian medical tourists in the year 2015 came from neighboring countries including Thailand and Singapore, her major competitors. As of 2011, 57 percent of Malaysian medical tourists were from Indonesia. However, through promotional campaigns, private and public sector are expanding the market to as far as the Middle East and Japan. In a mid-January report, International living ranked Malaysia top four medical tourism destinations based on post procedure recuperation, cost competitiveness, service quality and accessibility.

This announcement created an awareness of cheap quality healthcare which attracted more tourists to them. Recently, Singapore health insurance policy began to allow her policy holders to travel to Malaysia for medical care because of lower cost.

The Flow of Overseas Patients to the Cost-Effective Healthcare Centers

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

With the rapid progress of medical technology and communication technology, people throughout the world can gather information about the latest development in any related issue within no time. As a result, the number of foreign medical tourists is getting increased in several developing countries day by day. There are various internal and external reasons behind the flow of so many US and European medical tourists setting out for India, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia.

Why Foreign People Go to Developing Countries for Treatment

The most prominent cause of their interest in getting health care from these cheap nations is the standard medical facilities and quality service recently available here at a very affordable rate. The most prominent reasons behind high expenses in medical service in the western nations that lead them to fly to the developing countries for cheap healthcare service are their administrative costs, drug costs, defensive medicine, expensive mix of treatment, wages and work rules and branding.

The Real Condition of Medical Service in the West

Healthcare in the developed nations like USA, UK and few other European nations costs twice, thrice and in some cases five times as much as the developing nations. In the words of a Harvard Economist Harvard Cutler, “The administrative costs of running our healthcare system are astronomical. About one quarter of healthcare cost is associated with administration, which is far higher than in any other country.” People who cannot afford these high costs for treatment look for the alternatives and plan for medical tourism, of course, to a country reputed for quality healthcare at an affordable rate.

Cost-Efficient Medicare in Several Developing Nations

During the last decade the number of overseas patients visiting the three top healthcare providing nations- Thailand, Singapore and India are getting increased overwhelmingly. They have already overcome most of their deficiencies in health sectors such as world class medical facilities, trained doctors, advanced diagnosis formulae, digital services etc to a certain degree. And the most striking thing is the unbelievably cheap healthcare facilities offered by these nations in comparison with the developed countries. Alexander Yakovlev, a Russian engineer, says:“If Russians knew that the same India has hospitals comparable to those in the West, many of them would be flying out to India, not Europe.”

Equivalent Medical facilities in Respective Fields

According to the reports of WHO and The Commonwealth Fund, healthcare in these nations are one of the best but they are never in the top of the list for certain significant reasons. Many healthcare centers and hospitals in Thailand and India offer almost equivalent medical service to the USA and UK at an astonishingly cheap cost. For example, a bypass grafting can cost you between Rs 7 Lac and Rs 15 Lac in any western hospital while in India; the same surgery may require just Rs 1.3 Lac . Cardiac Imaging in the West is twice or even thrice as expensive as in India. Organ transplants are possible at only 25% of the total cost in the West, without sacrificing quality.

Passion for Medical Tourism

Medical tourism to the third world countries has become a passion for the western people. In addition to the cost effectiveness, many other attractions are there for those who love traveling abroad and also who like to enjoy the opportunity of continuous home service for quality treatment. After all, the foreign patients are crowding these healthcare centers mainly for cheap medical facilities.

Dental Procedures Sought Mostly by Medical Tourists

Read more Medical Tourism articles: http://j.mp/29NvwO1

A report by a travel facilitator revealed that in 2015, about 1.2 million Americans traveled for medical tourism and nearly half of that number had a dental process done on them. One of the major reasons why Americans travel to get medical tourism is to save a few dollars in the process. For example, a root canal costs about a thousand dollars in America but the same process would only cost about two hundred dollars in Thailand.

Preferred Medical Tourist Destinations

Medical tourism has become a global phenomenon with patients traveling from developed countries like the USA or UK to Thailand and from developing countries to developed countries as well. Many countries are well known for medical tourism particularly in the area of dentistry. However, the list of the most visited countries includes Costa Rica, Malaysia, Thailand, India, Israel, Mexico, Taiwan, Turkey, United States and South Korea. There are several dental procedures but the most sought for are;

#

Teeth Whitening

Foods that are high in acid content will wear off the enamel (the outermost part of the teeth) making it easier for the teeth to be stained. Coffee, strawberries, tea, smoking and so on can cause the teeth to be stained. On the other hand, the teeth will naturally become discolored with age. There are two types of teeth whitening; the in-office and the take home teeth whitening. The former is more costly at about six hundred and fifty dollars while the latter goes for about four hundred dollars.

#

Dental Veneers

As we grow up, we use our teeth for various activities, which leave them chipped or lost entirely. Veneers are made of resins or ceramic and used to fix chipped tooth and decaying dental. It can also be used to fill spaces between teeth. Veneering is an attempt to bring back the enamel then a porcelain laminate is bound on the tooth outer surface.

#

Examination to Detect Oral Cancer

Since the campaign that it was possible to manage cancer if discovered in the early stage gained precedence, more medical tourists went for a total oral examination. During a total examination to detect oral cancer, your dentist will look for sores and discoloration in your mouth; then examine your face, neck and inside of your mouth for puffs and lumps.

#

Surgery on the Gums of the Teeth

Gingivitis is a mild gum disease which can ultimately lead to loss of jawbone if left unchecked. It is usually reversible if the proper treatment is administered to the person. If nothing is done, it progresses to a more permanent form which is called periodontitis. When it gets to this form, it often requires surgery to correct. If the damage is very bad, it may lead to total dental reconstruction, which could cost as high as twenty five thousand dollars.

#

Tooth Extractions

Severely damaged teeth will leave dentists no other option than to harvest them from their roots. Sometimes, a tooth can be detached for orthodontic treatment. Tooth extraction is not very expensive but still cheaper in Asia.

#

Dental Bridges and Implants

Dental Implant is the replacement of the tooth root while dental bridge includes filling a gap with false tooth/ teeth anchored between two neighboring teeth. A bridge will have two crowns.
