Best Practices In Medical Tourism

A best practice is a method that has demonstrated to produce results better than those achieved by other means, and that is used as a benchmark against which to judge one’s own practices and to improve those practices.In medical tourism, as in health care, the results we want are excellent treatment, excellent care and ultimately excellent outcomes for the international traveling patient.

While best practices in medical tourism are still under development, these papers are prepared as a means to evolve benchmarks and best practices in medical tourism and to suggest ways in which outcomes can be best measured, let alone improved.
