Medical tourism directory: Explanation about how this directory works for hospitals and patients.

Connecting Hospitals, Doctors and Patients!

Medical Tourism Directory Est. 2015 is a user friendly and professional facilitator website, based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The goal is to connect patients, from any country in the world, with hospitals which offer medical treatment to international patients.

The usage of the website is always completely free for the patients – no charges at all.

By using the Medical Tourism Directory, patients can;
– Get faster access to medical treatment than in the home country,
– Get cheaper medical treatment than in the home country,
– Get medical care under discretion,
– For some medical treatments it is possible to combine vacation with healthcare or cosmetic treatment.

FOR HOSPITALS AND CLINICS

A hospital or clinic, that is organized to receive and treat international patients, can apply for a membership on 2015 Medical Tourism Directory.
The goal with the membership is to get in touch with more international patients, that are looking for the treatments that you can offer.
To see how a hospital presentation can look like, please check this Medical Tourism Sample Hospital.
If you are interested, just click on the SIGN UP button on the top of this page, and also your hospital can soon be presented here.

FOR PATIENTS

2015 Medical Tourism can help you find an affordable medical treatment with priority access!

Find Hospitals That Can Treat Your Condition

First of all you need a diagnosis from your doctor or dentist in your home country. Use then the search function on the Medical Tourism Directory to find the corresponding treatment.

Click on the treatment you need and the country where you would like to get the treatment. If you want a broader selection of hospitals you can choose a continent, or don’t choose any destination at all – then you will get proposals of hospitals around the world who can offer you this treatment.

Are you looking for a cosmetic treatment? It is the same procedure for cosmetic treatments as for medical treatments. All the cosmetic treatments are also listed in the search function on this site.

How to Choose Which Hospital Shall Treat You

Click on the hospitals that are listed on your search. Read about the hospitals, their doctors and about the treatment that you need. Contact the hospitals that you find interesting. It is faster to contact the hospitals via the chat than via the contact form. Ask all the details you want to know about how they perform the treatment that you need. Check which aftercare they provide for your treatment. Ask WHEN you can get an appointment for the treatment. Ask for the TOTAL COST of the treatment. Finally, compare the hospitals and choose the one that you find most interesting.

When you find a hospital that is interesting for you, just click on the FAVORITE button, and you will have all your favorites saved there, to easy find them later. And of course – CONTACT the clinic!

Plan Your Travel

Contact the country’s embassy (or consulate) that is located in your country and ask them about the details.

Medical Tourism Insurance

Check with your insurance agency if you need to extend the insurance to cover your planned medical travel. Read more about insurance companies that are specialized in medical tourism and medical travels.
