Does the Medical Tourism Facilitator understand the complete process?

A successful medical tourism facilitator obviously understands the role of all that are involved in the medical travel process and the concerns of their clients. The clients are traveller needing medical care and the facilitator connects the client with the service provider through continual support mechanisms from the start till they reach their home.

Who is in the Facilitation network?

A medical tourism facilitator must have a network which bursts with top-notch, highly trained medical personnel such as physician, surgeon, nursing staff, therapists, medical equipment provider and pharmacist. To have a quality medical travel experience, you should not only have state-of-the-art facilities in the network but also must have coordinators within the destination.

Establish documentation?

A facilitator must have all legal documentation in order with their facility, physician, insurance, travel, certifications, finances and medical records for a long-term, successful tourism process.

Has the Facilitator developed relationships beyond the medical personnel?

For a successful medical trip, the development of relationships with additional support networks of resorts, hotels, health clinics, spas, transportation businesses, airlines, aftercare services, and insurance companies are needed. Because they will directly affect the care of the patients hence the facilitators must select these team wisely and maintain an open, honest and direct relationship.

Does the Medical Tourism Facilitator have a working knowledge of the process?

All the important factors such as anatomy, kinesiology, physiology, psychology, pharmaceuticals help clients to get the medical help they need. So facilitator should understand how to work with the patient before and after their treatment. The facilitator should reserve a hotel room, order the right dietary foods, secure the best seating arrangements on plane which will allow them to be the most effective and create the best possible outcome.

Has the Facilitator done their medical travel homework?

A medical tourism facilitator should be able to offer a complete report on the medical tourism destination of your choice and this goes beyond the hospital or hotel. It means looking at the attractions, infrastructure of the area, shopping centers, restaurants, entertainment and night life and spas. Further a client will bring at least one loved one to be with them during the process. Having an idea of what is available will sweeten the pot for those who would like to see the sights of the international destination.

Does your chosen Medical Tourism Provider come with referrals?

Unlike other businesses, medical tourism relies heavily on referrals. If a patient had a widely successful experience with a specific medical tourism facilitator, then they are going to share their story with anyone who will listen. In the light of this word-of-mouth marketing, it befits most facilitators to work extremely hard to ensure that their clients receive full benefits of their medical tourism experience.
