Accreditation in Medical tourism: a key differentiator for health care providers
Patient experience is one of the significant factors in medical tourism and a high-quality patient experience can positively impact both a patient’s wellbeing as well as a healthcare provider’s finances. For healthcare providers treating medical travelers, the patient experience is especially important due to its complexity and must be carefully managed both inside and outside the clinical setting. Medical travelers face unique challenges that impact the patient experience including language and cultural barriers and difficulties related to travel and orientation in a foreign environment.
