Medical Tourism On the Rise in India

"India's tertiary healthcare sector is on the road to global fame. A growing number of spotlessly clean private hospitals are on the threshold of a boom in medical tourism, positioning themselves as the best destinations for procedures ranging from coronary bypasses to orthopaedic surgery at the most affordable costs. These hospitals offer high-quality care for international patients, whose numbers are reportedly rising 15 per cent annually; the prices that they charge are a fraction of what prevails in the developed world. India's corporate hospitals are fully equipped, up market and efficient. With their toll-free helplines, interactive websites, online quotes and time-bound treatment access, they appear to be a world apart from the overburdened, often badly managed and poorly funded public health system of India."
As medical tourism looks set to expand further, India must make use of the opportunity while ensuring that it does not create a health divide.

Medical Tourism


Dr. I-Net is a new and exciting concept designed as an alternative to Exorbitant U.S. Healthcare Costs.

"SURGERY ABROAD" ...save up to 80% for the exact same procedure performed at world-class medical facilities staffed with board certified surgeons using state-of-the-art equipment. When considering a medical surgery outside of the U.S., don’t go through the process alone. You should seek assistance from a professional organization that specializes in facilitating medical tourists. You will have the opportunity to utilize our years of research and due diligence to choose a surgeon in the destination of your preference. We have established relationships with many surgeons and hospitals, in multiple destinations; so, you are able to choose from an extensive list that best suits your personal needs. To begin, let’s address this question… …Is Medical Tourism For You?

Are you affected by the exorbitant healthcare costs in the U.S.? If so, we’ve have a great news for you! If you are among the 45 million Americans without medical insurance; One of the 250 million people with insurance, but, have restricted coverage due to pre-existing conditions; or One of the potential 300 million Americans seeking elective cosmetic or dental surgery; …then, you’ll be amazed at the value of traveling abroad to combine your healthcare needs and travel desires.

"Medicine is riddled with inefficiencies, outrageous costs, and outmoded technology...Already, health care accounts for 14% of the nation's gross domestic, product, and that's expected to climb to nearly 20% by 2005." -Businessweek December 2000

Imagine traveling to these exotic locations, in complete anonymity… With Dr. I-Net as medical advisor… …you’ll have your procedure performed by some of the best surgeons, at world-class medical facilities, with state-of-the-art equipment. Then, you’ll recuperate in a beautiful, serene setting, with peace and quite. As an added benefit, you may also choose to enjoy the interesting attractions your destination offers. You will receive all this for a fraction of the cost of the medical procedure alone in the U.S. Make this vision a reality by selecting Dr. I-Net as your medical tourism service agent. We do all the pre-operative and post operative work for you. Through our due diligence process, with your records in our database we’ve traveled to these locations to carefully inspect, verify and select our business associates and their facilities. Only the best surgeons, hospitals, hotels and destination program managers have met our stringent criteria and have been chosen to participate in this program.

Where do the cost savings come from? How come these hospitals offshore can offer these services at much lower prices? The answer lies in the economics of healthcare in the United States and the amount of fraud and waste that is present in the U.S. healthcare system. Many workers in the health care industry are basically getting paid to shuffle paper around. The health insurance companies are paid to deny health claims and the government workers at Medicare and Medicaid offices are paid to find new ways to deny payments to doctors and hospitals for services rendered. Thus, doctors' offices and hospitals have to employ entire staff to sit around and reclassify procedures in ways that can get paid by insurance companies, Medicare and Medicaid. It's a massive waste of time, money and effort.

In our healthcare system, it's a paperwork nightmare. All of this is a result of health insurance, both taxpayer-funded health insurance and private health insurance. In other words, things would be a lot simpler if people just price-shopped some of these procedures and paid out of their own pocket, rather than having to go through a monstrous bureaucratic system of paper shufflers. As a medical tourist in another country, you eliminate these paperwork shufflers. And right there, you can save as much as 80% right off the total cost. Because now, your dollars are actually going to the surgeons, anesthesiologists and other hospital workers who are attending you during your surgical procedure. Another reason these surgical procedures are so much more affordable in Asia is because of the liability issue. In the United States, doctors and hospitals must carry extremely expensive medical malpractice insurance policies.

International Members

Dr. I-Net provides the hospitals and doctors in foreign countries to submit cases on it's International Gateway to obtain an expert opinion. In emergency situations the right medical facility can be identified and the patient can be flown in for immediate treatment. In addition, individuals in the west can approach the experts in the far east to take advantage of their complimentary medicine and other related techniques. Additionally, video conferencing technology allows those people in other countries to visually communicate with physicians in the United States.

Dr. I-Net recognizes that its success depends on delivering service that enhances the performance of our clients' organization and adds value to their service. We believe quality, cost control and convenience are the most precious assets that we can deliver.

Dr. I-Net places high premium on clearly defined goals and objectives and expects the fullest cooperation and coordination among every aspect of this business. We recognize that to achieve quality we must, from the very beginning, design quality into every individual segment of our business and every aspect of our performance.
