News-Antique.com - Aug 12,2008 - For a long time, medical tourism has always been practiced by a few well-informed insiders, but now that it’s growing at an extraordinary rate, medical tourists need to choose their destinations wisely based on the quality of medical care of their vacation spots. Many medical tourists rely on word-of-mouth or advertising on their choice of destinations. It is usually based on price, availability of local tourist attractions, and the perceived quality of the local healthcare organizations. However, it is also important to consider other factors as well while attempting to get healthcare abroad. Factors such as whether insurance companies would agree to offset the care of healthcare given abroad, whether there is a need to travel back to get follow up care, or whether one can find good continuity of care back to the country of residence, are all important considerations. One very important consideration is that of the quality of care abroad. There is no guarantee that an operation performed abroad will be successful. It is advisable that each medical tourist be well-informed about the local laws and regulations incase something went wrong and there was suspicion of malpractice. Yoofgate seeks to correct this problem by bringing together the users of medical tourism so relevant information is publicly available and shared within the community. Yoofgate seeks to accumulate health tourism information by channeling personal anecdotes and quality surveys from the very people who have experienced first-hand, out-of-country operations and vacations. The site helps medical tourists by offering word-of-mouth experience that is lacking so crucially. It is expected that potential health tourists will find www.yoofgate.com useful as a first stop to check and collect the important information before making a decision to use a certain service. While all health care endeavors carry with them a set of risks, we hope that Yoofgate will win over health tourist users’ trust that they are going to receive better health care, not only with a lower price point, but also with a renewed sense of a healthier lifestyle, and a more enjoyable vacation.
