Treatment in the world’s best clinics

Due to the active development of medical tourism, up to 10 million patients annually are treated abroad. When choosing a treatment, patients are increasingly focusing not on the methods available in their country, but on achieving the best result. At the same time, new questions arise, including the choice of a clinic among medical institutions all over the world, the possibility of a quick arrival for treatment abroad, the cost of therapy and subsequent rehabilitation, organization of a trip to another country.

Thousands of people have successfully resolved these issues with maximum comfort and benefit for themselves with the help of a certified medical tourism operator, Booking Health. Booking Health assists people regardless of their country of residence. People from the CIS, European and Arab countries, the United States use our services.

Booking Health provides information, the choice is yours

The task of Booking Health is to provide the patient with the best option for treating his particular disease. Our doctors keep abreast of modern clinical research, monitor the trials of innovative medicines and the introduction of high-tech methods of medical treatment.

Thanks to Booking Health, patients of all countries have access to neurosurgical operations using the Visualase system, PSMA-Actinium therapy for prostate cancer, operations for restoring the length of the lower limbs using the Fitbone nail and much more. On the official website of Booking Health, you can find the detailed information about leading clinics, doctors and methods of treatment.

Certainly, when choosing a suitable medical program, its cost is important. On the Booking Health portal, you can easily find the prices for treatment abroad in different countries or in several clinics within the same country. You can make a comparison and choose the appropriate option.

We also take into account the geographical location and convenience of transfer to the clinic, while certain diseases require special conditions for patient travel / flight and accommodation.

If your case is non-standard, or you just want to check once again the correctness of your choice and consult with professionals, then you can fill out the form on the website and send us a request. Our specialists will examine your medical documents in detail and contact you for consultation.

Are there actually all clinics of the world presented on the Booking Health portal?

No, it is not that. This is not surprising, because Booking Health is the largest resource in the field of medical care, which thousands of international patients use every day to solve their health problems. Foreigners prefer to go to those hospitals, whose profiles are exposed on the site, because it is simple and effective.

We welcome the desire of hospitals to cooperate with us. This gives us the opportunity to use the full range of modern techniques and help more people. However, only those medical institutions that meet a number of stringent quality requirements are placed on our portal.

When we receive a request, we start by examining the official documents and the annual qualification reports of the clinic. We are interested in:

  1. Percentage of successful operations (other interventions, correctly diagnosed cases). This is one of the main indicators of work, which guarantees the patient the desired result of his trip for diagnostics or treatment.
  2. Number of operations (other interventions, examinations) performed. The activity of the medical institution reflects the practical experience of doctors and their level of qualification. Hospitals with extensive clinical practice, as a rule, have greater experience in managing patients with extraordinary and rare cases.
  3. No complications, safety. Favorable postoperative course and no side effects of drug therapy is the key to rapid recovery. This increases the effectiveness of treatment and reduces the risk of relapse.
  4. Research activities and implementation of new technologies. Our clinics use only updated treatment protocols. Participation of the medical institution in clinical trials is an additional advantage. In this case, patients can be treated with the help of medicines or methods that are under development.
  5. Level of equipment. The portal presents those hospitals that offer patients high-tech medical services in the area of their specialization. For example, if a surgery department is not fitted with equipment for endoscopic interventions, then such a clinic is unlikely to get to our portal.
  6. Absence of nosocomial infections. This indicator is partly related to the absence of treatment complications and reflects the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy regimens. We pay special attention to this point when evaluating interventional departments (neurosurgery, operative cardiology, interventional radiology, etc.).
  7. Comfort for visitors. We pay close attention to the convenience of staying in the outpatient clinic or the hospital and evaluate the need for presence of an accompanying person during medical travel.

If upon verification the medical institution does not meet our requirements, then we suggest what exactly should be improved. This encourages clinics to improve and increases the overall level of medical care. Once the performance indicators have improved, the administration of the hospital can contact us again.

Booking Health negotiates with the clinic instead of you

After the final selection of the clinic, you collect the documents and send a request for treatment there. The standard procedure for a foreign patient is a request to the administration department sent by mail or in electronic form. Dozens of requests are received here daily, including also those from patients who plan to just be acquainted with the conditions, but do not come for treatment.

In any case, the administrative staff carefully examines the medical records. Depending on the diagnosis and special characteristics of the patient’s condition, the clinic may send an invitation to treatment or refuse it. Waiting for a response is therefore delayed for a long time, up to six months. The cost of treatment is also announced including a 20% surcharge for foreign citizens, so for some patients it may be unacceptable.

With Booking Health, obtaining confirmation from the clinic is In most cases easier and faster. You do not need to send requests to various medical institutions and expect their proposals for months to make finally sure that it is too expensive. We negotiate in advance and approve all prices with the financial departments of clinics. Full information is publicly available on our portal. All you need is to simply choose the appropriate option and send us necessary medical records.

Booking Health will ensure a quick visit for treatment

Obtaining an invitation from the clinic is a guarantee that doctors are ready to admit you for treatment. After confirmation from your side, your data is placed on a waiting list. The waiting list is a queue of patients who claim to receive a similar medical service. When referring to a specialist of a narrow profile (for example, a renowned neurosurgeon or oncologist) or when registering for a high-tech treatment (like proton therapy, Gamma Knife treatment or Visualase), the waiting time can be as long as 5-6 months.

In addition, non-residents and domestic residents are placed on the same waiting list.

With Booking Health, you will be tested or receive the necessary treatment promptly. In case of emergency (for example, treatment of cancer, neurosurgical interventions, operations on the heart and vessels), hospitalization is possible within a few days.

Booking Health cares about your financial interests

Thanks to many years of experience in the field of medical tourism, Booking Health makes medical treatment in the leading clinics of the world affordable. The most innovative technique will be useless if its cost is beyond the reach of patients. Therefore, we take into account the peculiarities of price formation for medical services in different countries of the world and conclude direct contracts with clinics.

Booking Health patients enjoy the following benefits:

  1. No coefficient of additional cost nor extra charges for non-resident patients. The price of medical services is the same as for a local resident. At the same time, savings of up to 50% of the cost of the medical program.
  2. Special prices and discounts. Booking Health is committed to providing its patients with the most favorable treatment conditions. In many cases, we manage to negotiate with clinics and doctors about fixed prices for certain procedures, which leads to a significant reduction in cost. The list of such diagnostic and therapeutic procedures is constantly expanding. You can obtain detailed information from our medical advisor when planning a trip.
  3. Possible complications of treatment are covered by insurance. We recommend only those clinics whose medical statistics show a minimal risk of complications. Nonetheless, insurance guarantees no increase in the cost of the medical program when performing the necessary additional procedures.

In addition, the cost of treatment abroad varies considerably from country to country. For example, when comparing the Indian and Israeli hospitals, undoubtedly, India is ahead. Booking Health specialists will help you choose a treatment with the best ratio of quality/cost.
