India ranks second position in terms of Medical tourism. It is placed only after Thailand. India spends 1.2% of its GDP on health, but takes care of foreign patients. In 2007, Indian hospitals treated 4.5 lakh patients from other countries against topper Thailand s 12 lakh. According to a two year two-year study by healthcare researchers Deloitte, there s always been an inflow of patients from neighbouring countries and West Asia, but now there s a significant rise in patients from the US, UK and Europe. During recession, cheaper treatment is a huge attraction. Some other factors, that contributed to the growth of medical tourism in India is the long patient waiting list especially in the UK and Europe. The per-capita healthcare expenditure in Korea is 720 against India s 94. Treatment cost is lowest in India, which is 20% of the average cost incurred in US, in Singapore, Thailand and South Africa it s 30% of the US cost. Medical tourism showcases the potential of Indian healthcare sector to the world which dreaded India for the incidence of AIDS, tuberculosis, cancer, malaria and diabetes. Indian clinical and paramedical talent is globally appreciated and with JCI accreditation of some hospitals, international standard is proven. Third-party intervention through health insurance has also given it a boost. Thailand, which revolutionised medical tourism, is more into cosmetic surgery whereas India focuses on cardiac, neurological or orthopaedic problems.

Medical tourism is actually thousands of years old. In ancient Greece, pilgrims and patients came from all over the Mediterranean to the sanctuary of the healing god, Asklepios, at Epidaurus. In Roman Britain, patients took the waters at a shrine at Bath, a practice that continued for 2,000 years. From the 18th century wealthy Europeans travelled to spas from Germany to the Nile. In the 21st century, relatively low-cost jet travel has taken the industry beyond the wealthy and desperate. India is considered the leading country promoting medical tourism-and now it is moving into a new area of medical outsourcing, where subcontractors provide services to the overburdened medical care systems in western countries. India s National Health Policy declares that treatment of foreign patients is legally an export and deemed eligible for all fiscal incentives extended to export earnings. Government and private sector studies in India estimate that medical tourism could bring between 1 billion and 2 billion US into the country by 2012. The reports estimate that medical tourism to India is growing by 30 per cent a year. India s top-rated education system is not only churning out computer programmers and engineers, but an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 doctors and nurses each year.
