Atlanta-based OMEDTRA paves the way for a new solution in healthcare:
overseas access to safe, quality treatment
ATLANTA, May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Americans who are looking for alternatives to the labyrinth that is the U.S. healthcare system need look no longer. Omedtra, a medical tourism, health travel and wellness company, is helping to make affordable, care-oriented medical treatment solutions available to patients everywhere.
An increasingly popular topic in America's healthcare debate, medical tourism provides a reliable healthcare option for millions of Americans who are in need of medical treatment, but cannot afford the cost of healthcare in the United States.

According to a new study by Deloitte, nearly 40 percent of U.S. healthcare consumers said they would travel outside of the country for medical tourism, if the quality was comparable and the cost was cut in half. In fact, 36.7 percent of Baby Boomers, 41.9 percent of Generation X-ers and an incredible 51.1 percent of Generation Y-ers would engage in medical tourism.
"Everyone is watching their pocketbooks and worried about rising healthcare costs, especially in this economy," says Omedtra's founder and CEO, Dr. Rakesh V. Thapliyal. "But one thing is undeniable: all of us, regardless of generation, are becoming more and more interested in our own healthcare."
