Healthy Travel Media to release medical travel application for international patients.

(Vocus) February 23, 2010 -- Healthy Travel Media, publishers of the Patients Beyond Borders series, announces HealthTraveler™, the first mobile application that allows patients and international travelers alike to quickly find the highest-quality, American-accredited hospitals and clinics in the world’s 50 most-traveled tourist destinations. Developed initially for the Apple iPhone, HealthTraveler provides important information for patients crossing borders for medical procedures, as well as for tourists who require medical attention while abroad.

This readily accessible application will provide users with vital information on international hospital locations, including current data on specialties, accreditation, procedures, and other medical services available, as well as detailed contact information that allows the user to instantly connect with the selected hospital or facility. HealthTraveler will also allow users immediate access to maps and GPS-generated driving directions to their desired locations, along with direct-connect call capabilities to alert hospital emergency personnel of their arrival and condition.

“Every year, millions of leisure and business travelers either become sick or have accidents while traveling abroad; the ability to quickly and reliably obtain potentially life-saving information on the best available medical resources is a must,” says Healthy Travel Media CEO Josef Woodman. “HealthTraveler provides instant access to trusted, vetted medical information tourists and medical travelers require to make informed healthcare choices while abroad.”

HealthTraveler provides information on more than 250 hospitals and clinics—most of them American-accredited—around the world. Patients seeking high-quality, affordable care abroad will also be able to search for the best hospitals and clinics in the world’s leading medical tourism destinations.

HealthTraveler is scheduled for release in fall 2010 on Apple’s iPhone and iTouch mobile devices, with plans underway for subsequent releases on BlackBerry and Android. The manufacturer’s list price is $3.99.
