"Medical tourism is a term involving people who travel to a different place to receive treatment for a disease, ailment, or condition, and who are seeking lower cost of care, higher quality of care, better access to care, or different care than they could receive at home country.”
Medipoc has a team for International Patient Services, which offers personalized services for overseas patients. Services include medical query handling in country of origin and pre- evaluation for optimal treatment options with estimated length of stay and estimated costs. The emergence of web-based medical tourism facilitators (MTFs) has added a new dimension to the phenomenon of cross-border travel. These facilitators are crucial connectors between foreign patients and host countries. They help patients navigate countries, doctors and specialties. However, little attention has been paid to the authenticity of information displayed on the facilitators' web portals, and whether they follow ethical guidelines and standards.

With globalization, the world has shrunk even as the global healthcare industry has grown. The consequent integration of world economies has had a considerable impact on the health trade (1, 2). Newer modes of trade for accessing healthcare have transformed the nature of health service delivery. Medical tourism is one such segment of the health trade (3, 4). While it is not new, it has grown substantially in recent years, with the entry of more than 50 countries into this business in a short time span (5, 6).
Medical tourism involves patients travelling from their home country to a foreign country, where they must make arrangements for their treatment and stay. When seeking care in a foreign country, patients use various agents including insurance companies and healthcare providers (7). One of these agencies is the Medical Tourism Facilitator (MTF). MTFs provide a combination of arrangements required for medical tourism, and act as intermediaries between patients and medical services (4). They have a presence in the host country, the destination country or a third country (8). They enable foreign patients to locate a suitable destination within their budget (9, 10). MTF companies (11) advertise and reach a larger audience through the medium of the internet. They have emerged as the most common source of information that influences a patient's choice of destination country (12). Today, MTFs are an indispensable component of the medical tourism industry, as they connect hospitals and physicians to patients across the world (13). They are networking tools that provide particular hospitals or physicians with a much wider platform and can promote them across the globe (4, 11).
