THIS WEEK IN MEDICAL TRAVEL TODAY

Volume 9, Issue 4

Dear Colleagues:

With the increasing cost of medical care and long waitlists for treatment of life threatening conditions in the U.S., access to high-quality, affordable care around the world is an attractive option for many consumers.

In 2015, MedicAbroad introduced itself to the healthcare scene as a platform designed to connect U.S. patients to internationally accredited providers and facilities in a number of locations, including: Costa Rica, Greece, Hungary, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Turkey and UAE.

With more than 100 finalized cases in 2016, MedicAbroad expects to help between 800-1,000 patients by the end of 2017.

We're starting to hear from many hospitals, independent surgi-centers and provider groups that want to be better positioned to serve self-funded employers offering medical/surgical travel options.  If you have a good story to tell us, please be in touch!  We want to boost opportunities for Centers of Excellence nationwide. 

Tell us:

What distinguishes your service offering in terms of cost, patient experience and satisfaction, outcomes, or other quality indicators. 

Send us your descriptor, including photos or charts, and we will evaluate for publication in this newsletter.

Please be in touch and let me know how you are surviving and thriving in this emerging marketplace.

SPOTLIGHT: Canip Erim, Managing Partner, MedicAbroad

Website: http://www.medicabroad.com/
Intro Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NM_9KNuBuw

About Canip Erim
Canip Erim is the Managing Partner and Co-Founder of MedicAbroad. Along with his partner and co-founder Mr. Vahap Subasi, he oversees the company's operations and drives strategic vision for MedicAbroad. He exclusively focuses on MedicAbroad's marketing strategy and building its brand, along with creating medical package products and developing the international sales agent network.

Erim has more than 15 years of experience in the tourism industry and has been in charge of sales for an international cruise wholesaler both in Europe and the Middle East for eight years. He has an MBA Degree in General Management and International Marketing from New York Institute of Tech, and a BS Degree in Tourism Administration.

About MedicAbroad
MedicAbroad was founded in November 2015 with two acting partners and various investors. Our mission is to bring high-quality and reliable healthcare to those who are in need, with affordability and accessibility dive in mind. Through our New York main office we manage all of our U.S. and Canada marketing and sales with highly experienced international staff. Our second office in Istanbul manages hospital and physician research, selecting, and contracting processes. We have 14 employees including medical tourism specialists, consulting physicians, sales, accounting, and management.

Medical Travel Today (MTT): Tell us about MedicAbroad.

Canip Erim (CE): MedicAbroad is a U.S. based medical travel facilitator based in New York that focuses on helping patients from other parts of the globe receive medical treatment through an affordable healthcare facility with quality services.

MedicAbroad was established in 2015 to fill a very important gap in the U.S. healthcare system, which was created by high cost increases, long waitlists for life threatening treatments, and undeniable quality increases in medical facilities around the world.

Originally designed to create reliable access for cruise passengers while they sail in the European waters, MedicAbroad establishes a communication channel between cruise patients and medical facilities in the closest European ports.

Additionally, MedicAbroad offers several medical travel packages which include flights, hotel accommodations and special services for those interested in cosmetic and IVF procedures.

MTT: How do you qualify hospitals?

CE: We are extremely selective and cautious when choosing healthcare providers for our customers in the U.S. and abroad. Internationally recognized and accredited medical facilities are the only treatment facilities we contract with.

International and regional accreditations are essential for selecting an international healthcare provider. All of our selected hospitals are Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited. Doctors and specialists are recommended based on their accreditations, certifications and backgrounds.

To date, MedicAbroad contracts with 55 hospitals and clinics in 13 different countries.

MTT: Where are the facilities located?

CE: MedicAbroad signed contracts with limited destinations that have high quality and internationally accredited hospitals and clinics.

With the motto, ‘Medical travel is a healing journey,' we require a certain level of criteria from the facilities, including security, stability, accessibility, specialization in certain treatments and touristic attractiveness.

To that note, we have contracts with hospitals in Costa Rica, Greece, Hungary, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Turkey and UAE.

MTT: Does MedicAbroad assist international patients find treatment in the U.S.?

CE: MedicAbroad was established in the U.S. to help American patients find treatment abroad.

However, we do receive certain cases from other parts of the world from time to time. For instance, our team just received an inquiry in April from a patient in Bangladesh, which we were able to forward to Malaysia as it was one of the best and closest destinations for desired treatment.

Our experience in the medical travel industry, along with new technology, gives us the confidence to provide medical services to patients around the world.

MTT: What are common procedures that patients are looking for?

CE: Since the beginning of 2016, MedicAbroad has received more than 600 inquiries to be analyzed and submitted to our selected facilities abroad. The leading treatment request has been for cosmetic procedures, including hair transplants, facial cosmetology and tummy tucks.

The second leading request has been for dental implants and related procedures. For these types of procedures, we tend to recommend Hungary for its well-known dentistry facilities.

In 2015, MedicAbroad helped successfully facilitate services for a U.S. patient in need of a kidney transplant.

The operation took place in a well-established hospital in Istanbul, Turkey.

Turkey's hospitals and physicians are highly equipped and accredited by international organizations with a comprehensive success rate of over 95 percent for organ transplants.

According to recent research, the estimated cost of a kidney transplant in 2015 - including pre- and post- surgery - was $333,300 in the U,S, whereas the same procedure will cost a maximum of $35,000 in Turkey.

MTT: Do the providers you work with offer bundled pricing?

CE: Pricing offered by hospitals and clinics is often based on the type of treatment.

For example, bundled package prices are generally offered by esthetic clinics.

At MedicAbroad, we also offer programs of three, seven or ten day packages for dental implants in Budapest and hair restoration in Istanbul. We also have an IVF package both in Athens and Istanbul for a slightly longer period of time.

MTT: How many patients have you helped to date?

CE: As of Jun 30th, 2016, MedicAbroad has finalized 58 cases and has close to 100 cases that will be examined and finalized by the end of summer 2016.

As the demand rate increases significantly each month, our target is to help a minimum of 800-1,000 patients by the end of 2017.

MTT: What can our readers expect from MedicAbroad in the future?

CE: MedicAbroad is a rapidly growing firm that has created a platform for its customers to have better healthcare by providing a direct communication channel to hospitals and physicians.

As we continue to receive inquiries from uninsured patients, we plan to direct contact with firms to provide medical travel packages as an option for employees' insurance policies.

Right now, we have been in contact with insurance companies to provide our services as an alternative medical benefit for certain procedures overseas, such as organ transplants, orthopedic surgeries and cardiovascular procedures.

MTT: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

CE: Our main challenge here in the U.S. is that many individuals still don't understand the concept of traveling abroad for medical purposes and don't believe in the benefits of this travel experience. We use our all resources to inform and educate potential health seekers out there with help of channels like Medical Travel Today and others.

Today, high-quality global healthcare is emerging rapidly and there shouldn't be pushback to seek treatment in countries like Greece, Hungary, Costa Rica, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey and so on.

Industry News

China Deals with Increase in IVF Demand after One-Family One-Child Policy Was Removed

Placidway.com- Back in 1949, shortly after the People's Republic of China was established, the government encouraged Chinese families to have children and create manpower. Therefore, China's population doubled in the following years, but a problem arose: the country's food supply was strained. Between 1959 and 1961, the Great Chinese Famine killed an estimated 15 to 30 million people.

That is why the government decided to introduce in 1979 the one-child policy and a series of fines, sterilizations, and abortions for those who did not comply. It is estimated that this law prevented 400 million births.

After more than three decades of strict regulations, China has decided to remove this policy. Now families are allowed to have two children, but the law does not apply for single women who want to become mothers or to unmarried couples.

The decision to end this policy and allow families to have two children was taken for two reasons. One of them was to improve the balanced development of the population and the second was to deal with the aging population issue.

The Role Played by Medical Tourism
For some couples who have decided to have a second child, conceiving naturally is not possible. More and more Chinese people are infertile, with more than 40 million people in 2013, which makes up 12.5 percent of the total population of childbearing age.

This has led to overcrowding the IVF clinics in the country, with one clinic serving 3.8 million people. More than 200,000 couples receive IVF Treatment in China annually, but the number is growing rapidly since the relaxation of the one child policy. Besides this, the procedure is not covered by insurance, so this counts as an extra reason for couples to look for fertility treatments abroad.

Medical tourism has become a widely chosen option for couples looking for highly-successful fertility procedures, as well as treatments that are not offered in their home country such as gender selection. Many couples consider gender selection to ensure proper family balancing.

Some of the most chosen countries for fertility treatments are Thailand, Ukraine, Korea and Georgia for their wide fertility treatment options, high success rates and highly specialized fertility specialists.

Fertility Procedures

Gender Selection
Some of the countries chosen by Chinese couples for gender selection we can mention Cyprus, Russia, Ukraine and Greece. There are two proven techniques that can affect the gender of the future child: the sperm-sorting method and the IVF procedure with the use of PGD. Both come with great success rates and have already been used for many years.

Sperm Sorting
The sperm sorting technique has been used for more than 30 years. The sperm sample is placed in a centrifuge where the denser X-sperm (producing a female child) is separated from the lighter Y-sperm (producing a male child). By separating the layers, one is increasing the chances of producing a child of a specific gender. The rates of success for this procedure are up to 85% for the couples who want a boy and 75% for those who want a girl. The price for this procedure varies between $1,300 and $2,500 per cycle.

IVF with PGD (In Vitro Fertilization with Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis)
With a success rate of97-99.9%, PGD is the only method that can guarantee the gender of the child. Embryos are tested for gender before they are implanted in the womb through IVF. The eggs are taken from the mother or from a donor and the sperm sample is taken from the father or a donor. The embryos are created in the lab and in the third day of growth they are subject to a biopsy.PGD is usually used by couples with a family history of a genetic disorder or by older women who are prone to having a baby with genetic birth defects. Prices vary from $2,235 in the Czech Republic to $6,400 in Cyprus and $7,925 in Thailand.

IVF using donor eggs
The success rates for IVF procedure drops significantly once the woman reaches 40, therefore some couples turn to donor eggs to conceive. The donor will have to undergo ovarian stimulation and egg collection, the eggs being fertilized with the male partner's sperm. Because the donor is young, the success of IVF with egg donation is more than 60%. The price for the procedure varies from $5,500 in India to $5,700 in Georgia and Cyprus and $6,730 in Russia.

Gestational Surrogacy
For some couples, the only solution to have a baby is surrogacy. With gestational surrogacy, the surrogate mother has no genetic link with the child. The embryo will be created using the biological father's sperm and the biological mother's egg or donor sperm and egg. Using IVF the embryo will be transferred to the uterus of the surrogate mother. Chinese couples can enjoy the benefits of surrogacy in countries such as Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Cyprus and the US. Prices range from $27,800 in Ukraine to $29,000 in Georgia and $49,830 in Russia.

Dental Services - Top 3 Market Drivers and Forecasts, Reports Technavio

Technavio analysts forecast the global dental services market to grow at a CAGR of almost 14% during the forecast period, according to their latest report.

The research study covers the present scenario and growth prospects of the global dental services market for 2016-2020. The report provides a detailed description of the vendor landscape for top vendors in the market. In addition, it discusses the major drivers that are influencing market dynamics and challenges faced by vendors.

The growing focus on the new technologies, such as 3D printing for diagnosis, robotic technologies for prosthesis are the future drivers for the global dental services market. The Americas is the leading market leader in the dental services market, followed by EMEA and APAC regions. The increase in the prevalence of the periodontal diseases, dental caries, and tooth decay are contributing to the patient pool. The changing food habits and lifestyle are driving the oral burden globally. The medical tourism flourishes in the APAC countries, such as India, Malaysia, Thailand and some of the EMEA countries, such as Sweden, and Israel. The future dental services market is expected to grow in the APAC region due to low procedure cost and rising medical tourism.

Request a sample report: http://www.technavio.com/request-a-sample?report=53904

Technavio's sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more.

Technavio healthcare and life sciences analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global dental services market:

  • Upcoming laser dentistry and painless treatment
  • Increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry and smile makeover
  • Increasing prevalence of the dental diseases in teenagers and adults

Upcoming laser dentistry and painless treatment
With the increased prevalence of oral problems globally, the trend is migrating from conventional to advanced dental services. The traditional dental services are overpowered by advanced dental care services, such as cosmetic dentistry and laser dentistry. The popularity of laser technology in dentistry is booming among patients as well as the oral care specialists. This painless technology has gained popularity with increasing demand for laser dentistry for extraction of tooth, orthodontics, and periodontal decay.

Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead orthopedics and medical devices analyst at Technavio, says, "Most of the countries, such as the US, Sweden, and Australia have adopted the practice of laser dental care. This, in turn, has increased the patient inflow at laser dentistry clinics than general dental clinics."

Increasing demand for cosmetic dentistry and smile makeover
Cosmetic dentistry has gained popularity over a period. The cosmetic dentistry focuses on the facial appearance. It is the beginning of an era where the adult population in the mid-30s and 40s are concentrating on their facial appearance and have started venturing into cosmetic treatment. The dental implants are the key drivers for cosmetic dentistry with available patient customized treatment options, for example, the freedom to choose dental filling which was earlier confined only to amalgam, gold, or other biomaterials.

"The generation is focused on the facial appearance due to which the smile makeover is emerging as a trending cosmetic dental service. The major factors driving the demand for cosmetic dentistry include increased awareness through social media platforms, marketing of dental practices, and media coverage," adds Srinivas.

Increasing prevalence of the dental diseases in teenagers and adults
Oral care and dental hygiene are major concerns with the changing habits of the consumer. The oral health burden has increased, which is expected to grow due to the shift in the consumer habits.

According to a recent study, there are about 75% of the pediatric and approximately 95% of the adult population are suffering from dental cavities across the globe. There is an increase in the incidence of the periodontal diseases amongst the pediatric as well as the adult population. Approximately 12.5% of the total world population suffers from severe periodontitis.
