Patients Beyond Borders
, a source of consumer and industry information about international health travel, and Medeguide
, an online international doctor directory, have formed an alliance to provide patients with search tools for global healthcare options, and to provide hospitals and health travel third parties with a unique offering of branding and marketing tools for the international patient.
Patients Beyond Borders and Medeguide will exchange their information and services, allowing patients everywhere to search hundreds of leading international hospitals and thousands of the world’s best doctors throughout Asia, Latin America, Europe, and the US by specialty, procedure, region, and cost.
Healthcare providers and networks can take advantage of a wide offering of marketing and branding tools tailored to maximize international visibility through online, mobile and light device apps, video, social communications, and traditional publishing channels.
Ruben Toral of Medeguide says, “Merging our product lines will create a comprehensive programme for those ready to take their international marketing campaign to the next level, and will create a win-win for healthcare consumers seeking reliable healthcare information. Josef Woodman of Patients Beyond Borders adds, “ Access to trusted, vetted information is key to millions of patients worldwide who are seeking quality and cost options, whether across town or across oceans. Our alliance is a big step toward connecting leading international hospitals and doctors to healthcare consumers in this currently underserved global marketplace.”
Medeguide, based in Bangkok, Thailand, is an online doctor directory that lists doctors from leading hospitals in medical travel destinations. Popular with expatriates and medical tourists, Medeguide allows users to find doctors by country, hospital, specialty, procedure, or condition. Users can view and compare doctors’ information without the hassle of going through multiple hospital websites. Medeguide’s easy-to-use online platform enables users to get recommendations about doctors from other patients, request appointments, and read articles about doctors, treatment options, and destinations.
Patients Beyond Borders provides independent information to healthcare consumers and industry leaders, through books, e-books, consumer websites, mobile devices, and social media. Patients Beyond Borders, soon to be released in its third edition, is a leading consumer reference guide for medical tourism.
