VOLUME 3 ISSUE 24: RD Whitney, CEO, Validation Institute Discusses Medical Travel as a Way to Reduce Costs

Dear Colleagues,

In this issue, RD Whitney, CEO of Validation Institute (VI), a membership organization made up of a network of health care vendors, health benefits advisors, and purchaser benefit managers focused on delivering better health value and stronger outcomes than conventional healthcare, describes the innovators and companies that are using medical travel to save on healthcare costs.

This issue also brings you news on the newest white paper from Echosens, “Addressing Risk for Cirrhosis, Liver Failure and Liver Cancer Among America’s Veterans,”; the $32 trillion that “Medicare for All” could cost over 10 years; Kaiser Permanente workers ratify new agreement; the US “medical tourists” that are seeking cheaper healthcare abroad; and the spread of ACOs and value-based payment models in 2019.

We’re excited to be attending HLTH 2019 the MGM Grand in Las Vegas! If you are here, let me know so we can say hello.

Thank you for your interest in this exciting, growing market space. We welcome your comments and/or editorial contributions, which can be sent directly to: editor@USDomesticMedicalTravel.com.
