Do We Understand Medical Traveler?

PlacidWay Medical Tourism Global Research: Consumer Demand Analysis 

                                                                                       

The emergence of consumer-centric healthcare and medical tourism has generated significant interest in global search for optimal healthcare.

Consumers are increasingly seeking healthcare solutions that fit their budget, treatment options, and buying preferences. In this new era of healthcare, the demand for health services is influenced by price, availability of specific treatment, and perceived quality.

PlacidWay conducted a global research to understand the characteristics of consumer driven healthcare and medical travel demand.

This research, based on a global sample of potential medical tourists, provides insights on:

  • Who are potential medical tourists in terms of age, economic and health status

  • Which treatments they would consider traveling abroad

  • Why they would travel abroad for medical treatment
  • Where they would go to obtain such treatments
  • How much they are willing to pay for such services, their price point

  • When they are ready to make medical travel decisions.

The research analyzed the perception of consumers in terms of what, why, how, who they will interact when considering medical travel. This established the characteristics of the demand and their perceived values. It further establishes how people do their research about medical problems, and subsequently, identifying criteria for medical travel, evaluation of type of cost packages and decision making timelines.

For any industry to flourish, the equilibrium of supply and demand is vital for its success.

Similarly, in the evolving medical tourism industry, the balance between healthcare consumer needs (demand) and provider’s product (supply) should balance in order for the solution to succeed.
