Medical tourism – a practice of providing medical services outside the country of residence; often it is the combination of holiday abroad with highly qualified medical care receiving – is actual and rapidly developing sphere in Belarus.
The concept of medical tourism and consulting in this area are not original. Archaeological excavations confirm that in the 3rd century BC the Mesopotamians went to the one of the temples in Telbrak for the treatment of eye diseases. The ancient Greeks and Romans were ready to travel long distances to get to the special ceremonial houses located along the Mediterranean Sea.
The reasons that lead to the need to look for a solution abroad of one’s health problems can be different. There are several basic motivations of medical tourism:
- Low cost (about a quarter of medical tourists travel to places where services are cheaper);
- Advanced medical technologies;
- High quality of medical care;
- Absence of treatment or long waiting in native country;
- The possibility of combining the treatment with a rest (added value factor);
- The anonymity of treatment.
In recent years, such a factor as the safety of your stay in the country was added.
Anyway, choosing a country, hospital or doctor every person is looking for a decent quality for a reasonable price. In this regard, treatment and rest in the Republic of Belarus has a number of indisputable advantages.
But there is one very important detail: on the one hand, the rapid development of IT-technologies and global information networks enables a person to obtain the necessary information almost anywhere; on the other hand, it recognizes that the work of medical tourism operator is very different from the classical tour operators. 80% are the medical points; the remaining 20% are the elements of classical tourism.
