The Medical Tourism Association in collaboration with Global Healthcare Resources and the International Healthcare Research Center have launched the first Medical Tourism Moonshot to break down the major barriers preventing access and growth in medical tourism.
With a target to add 5 million new medical tourists to the industry in 2028, the Medical Tourism Moonshot is integrating data-driven solutions with the best of resources and expertise in the medical tourism industry to facilitate a seamless network between patients, health payers (referral organizations) and high-quality treatments around the world.
The Medical Tourism Moonshot leverages extraordinary solutions and collaborative results from major players to produce results as never been seen before. The aim is simple: to build a more sustainable industry by eliminating the barriers and complexities of conventional medical tourism models, as well as creating transparent access to data.
The Moonshot is building a healthcare future that is accessible to everyone.
This platform aims to solve the myriad of challenges limiting growth in medical tourism, including technology challenges, poor access to requisite data, pent-up demand for care, inadequate patient facilitation, poor marketing strategies, and the changing dynamics within the industry.
“The Medical Tourism industry has relaunched and is booming back again after the pandemic. It is time we re-imagined it, and solved all the problems that kept the industry, its stakeholders, and professionals from achieving the true success and potential it has,” said Jonathan Edelheit, CEO and founder of the Medical Tourism Association.
The Medical Tourism Moonshot solves these complex problems by facilitating appropriate technology to drive medical travel patient transactions, integrating systems that curate and synchronize data effectively, optimizing wellness travel solutions, and improving global provider network and collaborations to meet the global pent-up demand for care and drive competition.
Participation in the Moonshot is free and available to any stakeholder in the industry looking to drive growth in medical travel programs. All participants will receive the moonshot logo which they can proudly display on their website.
Join the medical tourism moonshot community today. Moonshot participants will receive updates on how the industry is coming together to achieve its goals. To learn more about the Medical Tourism Moonshot, click here.
