Are the medical facilities and equipments of same standard as I have in my native country?

 

Quality of medical facilities and standard of hospitals in medical tourism countries are as high as in USA & UK. But you need to do your home work as good as you can. This is because all the hospitals of these countries are not made for the medical tourism. 80 to 90% of hospitals are targeted for local population so you do not provide the high standard of accommodations and other facilities there. But the hospitals those specifically working in medical tourism sector i.e. for foreign patients have high standard of accommodation full of all the modern amenities like AC rooms, very hygienic water and food, internet, TV etc. available in patients room. Also they are equipped with all the machinery setup, doctors and other supporting staff of international standards. So while selecting the hospital be care full with respect to standards of hospital, may be a low standard hospital market it self as a medical tourism hospital and you would not get all the facilities for your healthcare you need.

How to confirm that medical facilities are safe and are of high standards?

  As far as confirming about the credibility and standard of a particular hospital at a medical tourism destination, the best way would be to check the credentials of that particular hospital through its website. This will provide you the infrastructure of the hospital, the staff; the attempted number of cases in different fields, especially the one you are opting for; the success rate, number of beds, modern amenities, etc.  If you are unable to obtain the credentials, you can ask for the details via email from the specific hospital so that you have a written confirmation by the authority itself.  You may also discuss with somebody, if known to you, who has visited that facility earlier.  The state health department of your country may also help you in this regard if it keeps track of the major facilities providing those services required.  Though this entire hunt may not provide you 100% awareness, but still you will be able to get an idea about it and may plan further.

How I can know the safety records and other important data regarding hospitals and practitioners in other countries?

 

It is very important to confirm the reliability of hospital and physician. You can check this by checking the accreditation of hospital. Having the right Accreditation ensures that the hospital has voluntary compliance with internationally recognized healthcare practices and ensures a basic quality product.  This is the first thing you should consider.  The very fact that a hospital has gone through the accreditation process tells us that another organization has reviewed and evaluated the hospital’s processes and procedures. Like Indian hospital Apollo and Wockhardt have been granted the Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation, catapulting them into an exclusive league of 71 international hospitals, such as Harvard Medical and Massachusetts General, to have cut the grade.

Ask the hospital what accreditation it has.  Then, check the website of the appropriate agency to review the process by which they proved accreditation to hospitals.

How to check and confirm nursing care and other facilities available?

  Affiliation of the hospital is best way to check and confirm the nursing care and other facilities. Most of the hospitals in medical tourism are affiliated with leading hospital in west. This affiliation shows that these hospitals undergo through certain procedure to get the affiliation and they need to maintain the high standards as some other body keep vigilance on them.
  • Training their medical staff in using cutting edge equipment.
  • Providing opportunities for international exchange of physicians and sharing of medical experiences.
  • Provide additional resources for diagnosis and treatment of complicated cases and major surgeries. 
  • Provide international standards of hygiene, pricing and standardization of treatments.

 Affiliations can provide timely access to world class quality, sharing of medical expertise, and related health services.  If you find that an Indian hospital has affiliations with a US based healthcare services provider then check the web site of the US provider.  Should it be an established firm, you can have some assurance that the US Company will have undertaken a detailed and comprehensive investigation of the Indian partner before signing the agreement.

What if I need a prescription filled while overseas?

 

For better health and safety always consult the licensed physician for prescription. While leaving your country take prescription from your doctor, but still you need to consult with the local dentist or physician. Your home prescription defiantly helps to local physician to prescribe the medicine for you. Do remember to inform local physician or dentist about if you are allergic to any drugs or other medical problems you have like Blood pressure, Diabetes etc.

What about my specific dietary requirements?

 

The top hospitals working in the area of medical tourism already know that their patients are from different locations and they use to accommodate their specific dietary requirements. If you want your meals to be vegetarian, kosher, cholesterol-free, or dairy free, they should be able to accommodate your particular needs. But then only it is better to inform your dietary requirements to hospital administrative authority, if they do not have your dietary in their hospital then they will make arrangement for you from near by restaurant.

Will I need Translator?

 

If your English is good then you do not need to worry about translator as the hospitals providing medical tourism have well trained staff having good communication skills in English. But then only you can confirm this to hospital authority through mail or check their website for specific instruction. If you do not know the English then specifically check it with hospitals authority may be they provide translator for you!
