IMTJ Masterclass USA

The IMTJ Masterclass: 'Medical Travel - opportunities for employers, funders and providers' will bring together a panel of esteemed medical travel experts to address a variety of issues facing the medical travel market.

There is much that countries, jurisdictions, providers and regions can learn from each other about how best to manage the transition from volume-based, fee-for-service care to value-based healthcare. Consumers traveling for medical services from one location to another – “medical travelers” – may be paving the way for an international exchange of ideas that will ultimately benefit insurance companies, intermediaries managing care, providers delivering care and governments overseeing health care. The markets have moved faster than the legacy systems which are responsible for funding, managing and delivering healthcare.
The Masterclass topics will include:

  • Medical travel & tourism market review
  • Employer funded medical travel
  • US providers & medical travel
  • Legal Issues: liability & jurisdiction
  • Marketing medical travel
