MedBridge, a leading provider of ambulatory surgery center (ASC) development, management and billing services, has launched a new company in the medical tourism industry, Kinese. Kinese is a first class surgical concierge service offering patients access to world renowned physicians, top level surgical care and the most luxurious hospitality accommodations in three California destinations: Beverly Hills, San Francisco and Santa Barbara.
“We are thrilled to launch Kinese,” said Dave Odell, MedBridge President & CEO. “For several years we have seen patients struggle with taking control of their own healthcare. Geography, insurance coverage and managed care contracts have been a constant constraint on many patients. Kinese allows international patients to connect with best-in-class US surgeons and facilities, as well as allows domestic patients to receive this same high-quality care without having to leave the country. Our goal is to disrupt the current bureaucracy that healthcare has become world-wide and put control back in the hands of the patient.”
Presently, patients are tired of unreasonably high healthcare costs, ambiguous pricing, long surgery waitlists and limited access to new treatment options. Kinese offers solutions to these global healthcare flaws.
Kinese provides immediate access to best-in-class surgeons, state-of-the-art facilities, and an unparalleled surgery concierge service. Kinese coordinates every aspect of a patient’s surgery experience and ensures that they receive the highest quality surgical care and hospitality accommodations available.
“While most companies simply provide resources for patients to research and plan their own procedure and travel accommodations, Kinese arranges every detail for our clients -from initial contact through post-operative care and recovery,” said Kyle Jorgensen, Kinese Concierge Coordinator. “Our deep partnerships and connections in the healthcare industry allow Kinese to offer services that are truly elite. No other company in the industry today provides patients with this level of individualized and authentic service and support throughout the entire surgical experience.”
Notably, Kinese also provides upfront, transparent pricing for all procedures. This eliminates the common pricing ambiguity patients find in the healthcare market today. Kinese patients are offered a cash pay rate for all surgical procedures, ensuring that they are fully informed of their financial responsibility before they enter the operating room.
In addition to serving as a personal surgery concierge, Kinese capitalizes on California’s luxury resources and for those patients who desire it, Kinese can arrange travel, hotel, chauffeur and extravagant accommodations including massages, physical therapy, Cryotherapy, wine tours, shopping sprees, fine dining and much more.
While Kinese is fully equipped to serve the VIP patient seeking a full service package of surgical, travel and hospitality accommodations, the company is also available to serve patients seeking only surgical care. Kinese molds its services to fit each client’s individual needs.
