Medical Tourism's Newest Entry Pushes for Medical Excellence
SEATTLE, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical tourism's newest facilitator of overseas medical travel revolutionizes a new vision for global health care. Veiovis enters the market with an unprecedented 20-year experience in health management and overseas patient care, an authority in both medical case management and travel facilitation.
"It's time to put the medical concerns of the 'patient' on par with the tourist needs of the 'traveler' in this industry," explained Joseph Husslein, CEO and founder of Veiovis. "Veiovis is designed to put the 'medical' back into 'medical travel'."
The natural offshoot of TakeCare Insurance Company, Inc. (the sole Guam-based health insurance provider for the U.S. Federal Employee Health Benefit Program), Veiovis leverages a wealth of experience in providing health care directly to patients. Its significant resources include TakeCare's health insurance and clinic operations, and recorded success as a pioneer of medical travel.
Ed Fess, M.D., Medical Director for TakeCare and Veiovis explains: "As I meet with both U.S. domestic and international doctors and hospitals, their common concern has been a severe lack among medical travel facilitators with experience in medical case management. The industry is populated by facilitators with primarily travel and tourism backgrounds who have almost no developed infrastructure for managing the entire continuum of patient care. By contrast, Veiovis leverages a model for overseas medicine - anchored in health care management and real clinical resources - that has been refined over the course of two decades through TakeCare."
By creating channels to cost-efficient medical solutions abroad, Veiovis directly responds to the current health care crisis in the United States. Its proficient, steadfast and systematized medical support services allow patients (and their primary care doctors) faster, more affordable access to state-of-the-art medicine, compassionate care, and a host of options for their medical requirements.
"Three key patient responses need to be minimized as much as possible for the medical traveler: stress, confusion and service irrelevance," explains Grace Murphy, Director of Medical Management for Veiovis. "Our patients rely on us to safely and optimally bridge the distance between their home-based doctor and their overseas hospital. A medical travel partner who can consistently meet that expectation is going to be more relevant to the consumer."
Through TakeCare's 35-year presence in Asia, the world hub for medical travel, Veiovis operates with a thorough understanding of the global and local medical landscapes. For Veiovis patients, this warrants seamless quality care that is constantly monitored by Personal Case Managers and connected to a network of accredited hospitals; international medical specialists; and travel, hospitality and logistics service providers. Across its providers in Asia, Hawaii, the continental United States and the Pacific Northwest, Veiovis upholds a brand of borderless, full-spectrum support for optimum medical outcomes and travel tourist benefits.
