Americans Will Soon Have Medical Butlers to Assist in Medical Tourism Research
Date:2/26/2009

SINGAPORE, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The number of Americans traveling abroad for healthcare is on the rise. Medical tourism will be a major consumer trend as the recession worsens and more Americans are left without health insurance, facing huge medical bills at U.S. hospitals.

According to the Deloitte Centre for Health Solutions, the number of Americans traveling abroad for care is expected to reach six million in 2010 and 15.75 million by 2017. The $16 billion in cross border revenues is expected to grow by 325 percent to $68 billion within two years.

An innovative medical tourism platform, Fly Free For Health, has taken the lead to revolutionize the way Americans and global travelers can adopt medical tourism. It is the first such program in the world that allows "medical butlers" to facilitate the doctor selection process.

The current model of hospitals as facilitators that assist medical travelers in hospital booking has been completely revolutionized by Fly Free For Health's iMedical Butler (www.flyfreeforhealth.com).

Fly Free For Health has trained nurses in hospitality and medical tourism to become Medical Butlers to facilitate the doctor selection process. Now, the digital form of Medical Butlers, iMedical Butlers, can help global medical travelers research their medical tourism options and even invite medical travelers to attend webinars by renowned doctors to allow content rich pre-selection interaction.

Thailand, the largest medical tourism hub with more than 1.5 million medical tourists a year, and Singapore, with more than 400,000 medical tourists a year, are the first two medical tourism destinations being addressed by Fly Free For Health. Other medical tourism destinations like India and Korea will be part of the network soon so that medical travelers can enjoy the ultimate range of choices, pressure-free doctor selection, assisted research on their medical tourism destination, hospital and doctors.

Fly Free For Health is setting up unprecedented medical tourism concierge network that will consolidate existing medical tourism destinations in Asia to become one medical tourism region with seamless integration of health and lifestyle services. Medical travelers can start the process with iMedical Butler for assisted research and doctor selection and enjoy a high value health and lifestyle convergence during their stay. They can continue to utilize the iMedical Butler service for seamless post-procedure management after they return to their country. For more information, visit www.flyfreeforhealth.com.
