Vancouver Company Featured in Medical Tourism Magazine

Sat, 3 Mar 2012 08:10:59 EST

 
Vancouver, March 2, 2012—Passport Medical, announced today that their president, Mark Semple, authored an article on medical tourism that recently appeared in the Medical Tourism Magazine.
 
The magazine, published by the Medical Tourism Association, contained the article 'Medical Tourism Facilitators' in their January 2012 issue. The article was created by Semple to provide clarity in the field. With the large number of medical travel companies available around the world today, the need for a clean and easy to understand view of the medical tourism field was clear.
 
Because it is still an emerging field, clarity and transparency is very important to those in the business of providing access to facilities and healthcare providers around the world. For most people, the thought of arranging for and scheduling a medical procedure in their own country is a daunting task. Add an overseas journey and unfamiliarity with a foreign culture and it can be almost terrifying. As advocates for the benefits, both medically and financially, Passport Medical seeks to facilitate the whole process for the client, from making initial contacts, to scheduling procedures and all arrangements. This ensures that the client and focus on recovery.
 
'We have a responsibility to educate the public on medical tourism,' said Mark Semple, president of Passport Medical. 'Having an opportunity to contribute an important article to Medical Tourism Magazine was one that we couldn't pass up, because we strongly believe in this industry and try to make sure that the information available accurately represents it.'
                   
By facilitating the process for a potential patient, the uncertainty of the process is eased, and the focus can stay on the procedure needed. It is important that people understand that having quality healthcare procedures done overseas is not something that should be overlooked, and that there are huge benefits to be found abroad
 
'Patients have more important things to focus their mind and attention on than the details of getting to the procedure,' Said Semple. 'The fear that patients will be confronted by a language barrier and sub-standard health practices is completely unfounded, and we hope to change that misperception and make it as simple as possible for them.'
