Therefore, they are looking at ways and means to set up a think tank of noted industry experts, including professionals in the healthcare and insurance sectors and academicians doing research into the effects of medical tourism on various sectors, countries and economies.

"Interest in medical tourism has been rising not only among individual consumers but also among insurance companies and businesses", says Dr Milica Bookman, Professor of Economics at St. Joseph's University, and author of the book ' Medical Tourism in Developing Countries'. "We are therefore entering a whole new phase of medical tourism, one in which individual western patients will not be the only consumers of medical tourism in developing countries. Their employers, insurance companies and governments will also be part of the equation."
