San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2009 -- Satori World Medical, a global health care company specializing in the emerging multi-million dollar medical tourism industry, announced that Josef D. Woodman, one of the medical tourism industry's most renowned experts, lecturers and authors, has joined the company's Strategic Advisory Board (SAB).
Recognized for authoring the first comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to medical tourism, "Patients Beyond Borders," Woodman has spent more than three years touring 100 medical facilities in 14 countries and researching contemporary medical tourism. As co-founder of MyDailyHealth and Ventana Communications, Woodman's pioneering background in health, wellness, and Web technology, has allowed him to compile a wealth of information about global health travel, telemedicine, and new developments in consumer and institutional medical care.
As a member of Satori World Medical's SAB, Woodman will assist the company's Board of Directors and senior management team in the design of Satori World Medical's forward-looking strategy and tactics. A noted consumer advocate for the globalization of health care, Woodman has also lectured at the Harvard Medical School and the UCLA School of Public Health and has hosted more than a dozen seminars and workshops around the world on the topics of medical tourism and health travel.
According to Woodman, "Satori World Medical is one of the best global health care programs that I have seen. I am particularly impressed with Satori's Quality Assurance Program™ and its unique financial sharing model, which provides a measurable shared economic incentive for all program participants. Satori's business model is well-poised for growth over the next several years and for forging new strategies in addressing globalized health care. I look forward to being a part of its success."
Through its global network of Board Certified doctors practicing at state-of-the-art Joint Commission International (JCI)-accredited hospitals, Satori World Medical offers a comprehensive, high-quality integrated medical benefit program that reduces the costs of surgical procedures by an average of 40-80 percent when compared to the same procedures performed in a U.S. hospital.
"We are honored to have Josef Woodman join our Strategic Advisory Board," added Steven Lash, President & CEO of Satori World Medical. "His extensive hands-on experience with the consumer side of health care will help strengthen key relationships among patients, international providers and insurers."
