“Having been myself a pioneer in the growing industry of medical tourism 7 years ago in a former company and experiencing the challenges that our former patients had to go through, gave me the motivation to create a company that truly provides integrated solutions for every patient’s individual health needs, be it cardiac, spine or neurosurgery and other specialties coming in the near future.” said Dr. Gilete.
With the experienced gained as a neurosurgeon, it gave him the opportunity to achieve a deep knowledge of quality standards among his fellow colleagues as well as the hospitals in Barcelona and being armed with the know-how of the medical tourism industry made it fairly easy to identify the existing flaws and make the necessary improvements in Dr. Gilete’s new venture.
He continues, “Because Barcelona is associated to medical high-tech standards and is the 7th most visited destination by tourists, makes is a perfect combination to any patient seeking treatment abroad with the same quality standards expected in their home country.”
BISI’s unique business model is what makes the difference, “Being tied to an entire hospital was one of the biggest constraints I have experienced in the past.” Says Dr. Gilete, “so I decided to create a healthcare provider company focused on the Medical Tourism sector which represents only hand-picked surgeons within the best hospitals.” Concluded Dr. Gilete.
With the above said, it points out that one of BISI’s unique added values is having a team of doctors that evaluates at the very first stage every case to address the patient to the most suitable facility and/or to the most qualified doctor for this single case. This same team of doctors is available to assist with all medical preparations and work together with the patient’s local physician before arriving to Barcelona. “We believe it’s important to have a start-to-finish medical care element as part of the whole process and not be simply a passive intermediate as many organizations in the medical tourism industry tend to be.” Emphasized Dr. Gilete.
Under this concept, BISI – Barcelona International Surgical Institute was created and successfully launched in 2013 which quickly captured the attention of many doctors, patients and service providers around the world. BISI Institute’s approach is to carefully analyze each patient’s medical report and direct the patient to the most appropriate specialist doctor within the best hospitals in Barcelona. After the patient agrees to the treatment, BISI together with its external partners work together in order to provide the most personalized service focusing on the patient’s well-being beyond the medical requirements for the whole treatment duration.
