Universal Medical Travel is an independent company that helps plan, coordinate, and manage a patient’s trip to another country for medical or dental care. We are independent Medical Tourism Facilitators whose primary functions are:
- To help you choose a destination and find the best doctors
- To safely transmit all relevant medical information
- To ensure you receive the highest level of healthcare services at an affordable cost
- To make sure that all travel arrangements and travel needs are taken care of in a timely manner
- To stay in contact with the patient and the hospital during the trip and do follow-ups after they return home until full recovery
- To arrange and facilitate follow ups/post-operative care after the patient reaches home
Medical tourism facilitators play a critical role in the patient’s medical tourism process. We monitor every step of the whole process and make sure that the patient has a positive outcome, and a great experience. Patients need to develop a secure comfort level and trust in the quality of healthcare services, the safety and standards of the hospital, and the qualifications of the medical provider. This comfort level and trust is the critical role that a facilitator plays during the entire process. One of our main objectives throughout the medical tourism process is to educate and advocate for each patient so that he or she can receive the highest level of quality medical care at an affordable price from healthcare professionals at facilities that have been accredited by recognized international accrediting bodies such as the Joint Commission International, Global Healthcare Accreditation program, & International Society for Quality in Health Care.
