Title: GLOBAL TRENDS DRIVING HEALTHCARE TOURISM
Biography: Malek El Husseini
The pace of change in health care operations needs is accelerating we see changes in clinical practices, policies, and processes, the pressure on public to reduce cost and private to get more involved in order to satisfy patient needs using existing care settings, operating funds, and workforce. I will discuss the major drivers favoring healthcare tourism, the role of the government into setting up the strategy and the role of private investment to foster such changes, I will also take as example, Dubai, Jordan, Turkey and Thailand as examples. The role of innovation/technology to speed such the process and how countries can benefit from experience of each other.
