Medical Tourism Summit Held In Jordan
The global medical tourism summit now taking place in Jordan has drawn more than 350 specialists, representatives, and experts from the medical tourism industry, as well as insurers from around the globe. Medical Tours Costa Rica’s own Bill Cook was a speaker during the event.
The even was organized by the Private Hospitals Association (PHA), and the intent is to bring a focus on medical tourism and to foment awareness regarding the need for international standards of care and treatment. Jordan Enterprise Development Corporation (JEDCO), Jordan Investment Board (JIB), Jordan Tourism Board (JTB), The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Royal Jordanian (RJ) are all supporting the event.
At Medical Tours Costa Rica, we are well-aware of the need for international standards in care and treatment where hospitals and clinics are concerned. However, we also support the Medical Tourism Association in its initiative to also certify medical tourism consultants.
If companies in the medical tourism industry get certified, then there will be an increase in patient safety. There will also be standardization of processes and procedures.
Patients, employers, and insurance companies are going to begin to look for international certification when dealing with medical tourism companies. What this means to companies like Medical Tours Costa Rica is that the company is willing to submit itself to the rigorous certification process to show that it is transparent, and that anyone booking medical tourism services through the company can expect the highest level of care, according to set international standards.
