Inbound Italian medical tourism is growing slower than outbound.

 

Medical Tourism Italy (TMI) is a full service medical travel agency for foreign patients seeking treatment in Italian health facilities and Italian patients booking foreign health facilities. It also offers marketing advice to Italian hospitals and clinics.

Italians go to other countries because of price, specialist treatment and treatment not available in Italy. Price drives dental treatment in Hungary and Croatia while people go for Hepatitis C treatment in India plus fertility treatment in Spain. Numbers are increasing.

People go to Italy to get specialist treatment for oncology, cardiology, neurology and orthopaedics. The number of incoming patients is still much lower than the outbound figure, at less than 5000 a year as few local hospitals and clinics seek medical tourists. The number is slowly increasing.

There are signs of increased activity with medical tourists from Russia, Arab Countries and Switzerland to a small number of locations.
