Thanks go to Maria Todd, PhD, one of my medical tourism connections, and a fellow alumna from FAU, who sent the following post from her Medical Tourism Insights with Maria Todd blog.
Maria’s post muses on whether a city is a medical tourism destination candidate. Maria does a very good job in this post in explaining the different types of health tourism and who goes abroad for what kind of service.
She is the founder and CEO of Mercury Advisory Group, a part of Mercury Healthcare International. She travels the world consulting and speaking on health tourism, managed care, and integrated health delivery systems operations, among all of her other activities, and is the author of over a dozen professional trade books in health care.
Her reputation in the health tourism industry is well known to me because every time I meet a new person at a medical tourism conference, we always mention her name.
