Pioneering the Future of Medical Travel
From weight loss to brain surgery, the wants and needs of a traveling patient rely on the first message. Digital marketing and on-demand telehealth services are changing the way medical tourism and wellness travel business is expanding. New opportunities to define medical networks through evidenced based excellence are being realized while wellness travel offerings driving lifestyle change is taking flight. This session outlines the next generation of medical and wellness travel services that aim to impress the health and wellness seeker and all referrers, whether physician, facilitator or insurance company. Imagine a digital ecosystem of health and wellness services available at your fingertips with completely private, secure data transfer and financial transactions. What if chronic conditions and lifestyle diseases could be better managed or reduced through better access to the right health services at the right time for the right price? What if patient mobility was truly inspired by clinical outcomes and patient experience proven through evidence based metrics across borders?  

Moreover, the demand is rising for portable insurance policies to reward policy holders for healthier behavior and to recognize providers for better outcomes and experience through increased referrals. This controversial topic will be discussed among some of the leading experts improving access to healthcare.

Cross-Border Healthcare & Portability of Social Benefits
The health tourism industry (services including medical, thermal spas and wellness) is a popular topic amongst members of the European Union, EU Parliament and EU Commission, yet the more narrow interests and demands of the business of medical tourism is still undeveloped. The European Parliament concluded that a policy aiming at enhancing health in the EU through the integration of health tourism and healthcare and using the opportunities for “prevention rather than cure” has better potential than policy aimed at growing the health tourism market alone. Policies around employer and employee benefits cross board are also under extreme scrutiny. This session will take a look at the Health Tourism Report by the EP and the need to advocate the EU and its member states to remove obstacles to portability of social benefits where workers and companies operate freely across borders.
