)-- As Florida prepares to launch a $5 Million marketing program designed to promote the state as a global medical tourism destination, leaders from the Latin American medical tourism community will convene in Miami Beach in early May to discuss the future of medical tourism.
More than five hundred delegates from more than fifteen countries will gather May 6-8 at the Deauville Beach Resort in Miami Beach, Florida to discuss the future of medical tourism. Florida healthcare providers and legislators interested in learning more about medical tourism and how Costa Rica has become an international leader in medical travel, are invited to attend this important global medical tourism conference.
PROMED Costa Rica has assembled a team of medical tourism industry leaders and top Latin American executives as speakers to share their valuable expertise and insights regarding the international Medical Tourism Market. Notably, Patrick Goodness, CEO of The Goodness Company: Global Healthcare Marketing will address this event. The Goodness Company is the marketing agency for PROMED, Costa Rica’s official national medical tourism organization, responsible for the vibrant PROMED brand and website. The Goodness Company is also responsible for the marketing strategy that drives millions in annual medical travel revenues into this small Central American nation. Goodness has also developed successful medical tourism marketing strategies for Mexico, the Bahamas, Colombia, and many other destinations around the world. Goodness will lecture on topics related to healthcare and medical tourism marketing.
Why is Medical Tourism Important?
The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, has sounded an alarm for many individuals, businesses and state and local governments, driving them to seek new avenues for affordable healthcare. The quest to find high-quality, affordable healthcare leads many to seek medical attention outside of our national borders in countries like Mexico, India, Colombia and Costa Rica. In fact, Costa Rica is considered a pioneer and global leader in providing quality medical and dental services at prices that are often fifty to eighty percent less than comparable care in the US and Canada.
To encourage a greater understanding of Costa Rica’s leading healthcare and health tourism providers, PROMED (The Council for the International Promotion of Costa Rica Medicine), the leading private healthcare association in Costa Rica, is hosting the Fifth International Medical Travel Business Summit. This medical tourism event will be held in Miami, Florida making it easier for US and Canadian participants to learn more about healthcare choices available in Latin America.
The International Medical Travel Business Summit unites participants from Latin America and North America in a comfortable personal environment focused on valuable industry education and powerful professional networking. Attendees will participate in high-level medical tourism educational seminars and medical travel workshops designed to spur innovation and new business opportunities.
Structured networking meetings and casual social events will also allow participants to meet and discuss the future of medical tourism in Latin America with these industry thought leaders.
Lower Cost Healthcare in Latin America Saves Companies Money
The International Medical Travel Business Summit is an excellent opportunity for US companies to realize dramatic healthcare savings or to increase their healthcare service offerings through partnerships in Latin America. Meet leaders of key Latin American medical organizations, doctors, dentists and many other professionals that offer high-quality affordable healthcare solutions.
Why Is the International Medical Travel Business Summit Important?
Medical tourism has become a viable solution for the 52 Million Americans that have no or very limited medical insurance and the 142 Million Americans with little or no dental insurance. When the cost for quality medical care in the US and Canada becomes out of reach for most average middle class families, they are forced to seek affordable medical and dental care abroad.
Insurance companies, self-insured companies, benefits administrators and more recognize the high-quality of medical and dental care in many Lain American countries including Costa Rica. These insurance and benefits leaders attend the International Medical Travel Business Summit to meet with leading medical travel providers and forge powerful partnerships to provide affordable care for their insured members.
