)-- The Medical Tourism Association announces its newest member, World Medical Partners (WMP). WMP is based in Miami Florida, and has over 7 years of experience in inbound medical tourism.
The Medical Tourism Association is the first international non-profit association made up of the top international hospitals, healthcare providers, medical tourism facilitators, insurance companies, and other affiliated companies and members with the common goal of promoting the highest level of quality of healthcare to patients in a global environment. The Association promotes the interests of its healthcare providers and medical tourism facilitator members. The Medical Tourism Association has three tenets: Transparency, Communication and Education.
The Medical Tourism Association seeks to provide transparency in both quality of care and pricing. Every day the MTA sees more and more that the globalization of healthcare, has created a very flat world. MTA strives to exchange technology, information, communication, physicians and patients. In order to ensure patient safety, it is a goal to create transparency about the quality of healthcare that can be found in each country. With this, it is increasingly important to create a transparency in pricing as well so patients traveling overseas for care can be sure of what they are receiving without hidden costs or unforeseen expenses. The Medical Tourism Association is also working on the Quality of Care Project, which will change the way we look at the reporting of global healthcare statistics and the quality of care available at hospitals around the world.
