Offshoring and Healthcare

Offshoring and Healthcare: "Both the tourism and the healthcare industries in a number of offshore locations are joining forces to create attractive destinations for patients from the US and Europe. The projections for growth are very promising. A joint study performed by the Confederation of Indian Industry and McKinsey & Company in 2004 estimated that the medical tourism business in India alone might generate revenues in excess of $2 billion by the year 2012."

This of course means a loss of $ 2 billion dollars for the hospitals and doctors of the countries where these patients come from !
