Encouraged by the European Union Cross-Border Directive on Care, an increasing number of patients from within the 28-member nation organization are shopping around for medical opportunities including regular checkups, targeted diagnostics, elective surgeries and complex rehabilitations in Austria, said Renée-Marie Stephano (http://www.medicaltourismcongress.com/
“Doctors, clinicians and all who have a part in the medical tourism experience are stepping up their practices to accommodate patients who are expecting assurances for quality,” she said. “This means acquiring the training, knowledge and understanding so that consumers – patients, employers and industry peers – can be confident in the services they demand.”
Stephano said Europeans are being joined by patients from Asia, the United States and Commonwealth of Independent States -- Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan – looking for alternatives to some of the more traditional medical tourism destinations.
