Patient Centered IT in medical tourism « Patient Centered IT: "Medical tourism is special in many aspects. Patients travel first to be treated. Main drivers for this behavior are quality and/or price. This makes medical tourism a real market scenario with real customers."
This is a thoughtful post which helps to explains why many medical tourists are excellent role models of e-patients !
The fact that we treat a lot of patients from overseas who come to us for their IVF treatment is the reason why:
1. we use a lot of IT in our practise
2. we encourage patients to become e-patients - empowered, engaged experts !
