The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

One trend in the market is rise in international accreditation and assistance by hospitals. International accreditation of hospitals is one of the major trends in the global medical tourism market. The US has appointed an affiliate agency, the JCI, that provides accreditations to hospitals. Hospitals need to follow a set of rigorous standards to obtain the accreditation.

According to the report, one driver in the market is leveraging internet to create awareness. The emergence of internet allows for budding consumer to glance and request from a range of service offered by vendors through their online websites and portals. It makes the user experience of patients easier and aids in brand retention and visibility. The capacity of the vendors to showcase their services online allows for capturing larger share of the market and higher revenue generation. Moreover, the increasing penetration of internet will enable the vendors to provide a broad range of services such as dentistry, orthopedics, cardiovascular treatments, cancer treatments to reach new potential customers and increase the customer base for these services.

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is lack of reimbursements.

Despite reforms for pharmaceuticals and medical devices, developed countries such as Germany, France, the US, the UK, and Japan do not have proper reimbursement policies for these surgeries. Most of the medical insurance offered across the US do not cover the cost of these procedures barring a few Managed care organizations (MCOs) depending on the plans opted by patients. Also for the patients travelling to other nations for treatment are also hindered by the limited reimbursement options.
