Medical tourism has opened up the choices in health care for patients from the conventional options of local hospitals or providers, to choosing the best providers in the world for their medical care. This has tremendously increased the competition, standards and quality of the providers and is also driving down the costs of health care globally, making it an open, consumer driven industry rather than a provider driven industry, as in the past.
The advent of technology in health care delivery has brought new horizons for the healthcare consumer. Recently , a surgeon located in telemedicine hospital in France was able to successfully perform a robotic surgery on a patient located in a surgery room in a US hospital. This is the future of healthcare delivery. A future , where healthcare providers and patients are not restricted by distances, cultures or borders and are able to choose their surgeon or provider from any part of the world.
