San Diego, CA, December 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Satori World Medical, a leading medical travel and global healthcare company, releases a new 2-minute video aimed to demystify the history, process, and trend of medical travel. Medical travel, also commonly referred to as “medical tourism” or “global healthcare,” is the practice of traveling across international borders to obtain healthcare.
Although medical travel is not new concept, it has been gaining popularity over the past decade. This descriptive animated video gives a better understanding of why patients are increasingly opting to travel outside their home countries for surgical procedures and the benefits of considering global healthcare as an alternative.
“The steady rise in healthcare costs has resulted in an increase in need to educate patients on the options available to obtain high quality and more cost effective medical and surgical procedures. The 'What is Medical Travel' video will serve as a tool to educate those that are unfamiliar with medical travel the choices they have available,” said Steve Lash, President and CEO, Satori World Medical.
The video is available to watch on Satori’s blog www.satoriworldmedical.com/blog or on Satori’s YouTube channel http://youtu.be/I2fnRsOL9v8.
