What does Accreditation mean?
Accreditation of a hospital means that the hospital has met a set of minimum conditions stipulated by the accrediting agency for providing quality health care. There are agencies in many countries which grade the hospitals, nursing homes, health providing institutions according to the standards maintained in terms of quality of doctors, technicians & personnel employed by hospitals, the equipments with them, the standards of hygiene and cleanliness provided, the service provided to the patients. From the United States of America, this accreditation process is carried out by a large organization, Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization (JCAHO). In 1960, with the introduction of Medicare and Medicaid, hospitals which were accredited by JCAHO were considered to have met the conditions for participating in Medicare. There are commissions from other countries which also evaluate hospitals in their own countries and other countries and give accreditation certificates to hospitals which meet their minimum standards. To the patients the accreditation of a hospital means that they can expect high quality treatment using latest medical techniques from qualified & trained personnel in hygienic conditions with modern equipments from that hospital.

Why Asia?
Asia is the best continent for traveling to get medical treatment for the following very compelling reasons:
Many countries in Asia like India, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, etc. have well developed medical infrastructure.
These countries have medical institutions which employ highly qualified & experienced medical specialists, paramedical staff, nurses and physiotherapists and have installed sophisticated and modern medical equipments and have specially designed packages for foreign health tourists.
They have also had their facilities inspected by standards organizations like Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization of USA and have obtained their accreditation. This accreditation would assure the medical tourists of the very high standards maintained by these hospitals.
They have developed other infrastructure to service the patients for their post-treatment rejuvenation.
Favorable currency exchange rates in India, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, etc. make travel to these countries for medical treatment very affordable vis--vis high treatment costs in industrialized countries, In many countries in Asia sophisticated, modern and cost effective treatments are available at some times on one-tenth of the cost of the treatment in USA, UK, Japan or Europe
Comfortable international travel, good nursing care with English speaking staff in these countries help the patients feel at home while getting quality medical treatment from doctors who are not only well qualified and experienced but many a time have worked & gained reputation in hospitals in developed western countries.
The above countries can also provide hopes of alternative therapies like Ayurveda, Chinese traditional medicine, etc. which also attract patients from the world over for holistic treatment.
Almost all the countries in the region are endowed with natural beauty in their landscape because of which they offer many locations where a patient can choose to spend their post-treatment days to rejuvenate and recoup from their ailment.

Are doctors in developing countries like India competent?
Many of the Internationally Accredited Hospitals have highly qualified, well trained, English Speaking, accomplished specialists manning their various departments. You should not be surprised to find that many of these doctors have had stints for many years in renowned medical institutions in USA, UK, Europe or other developed countries before returning to India to continue their medical practice. Many would even have their post-graduate or higher qualifications from Medical Schools in the developed world.

Is it hygienic in countries like India?
India is land of contrasts. While many urban areas may not be very clean there are areas which would rival any of the cleanest localities anywhere in the world. Similarly, the internationally accredited hospitals are audited for their hygienic & cleanliness record and only when they meet the standards set, are they given accreditation certificate. So you would find that hospitals or institution would be hygienically very safe.

Can I have an interaction with the doctor who would treat me?
Yes, you can. We shall arrange for an interaction with the chosen doctor before traveling abroad. Contact us to interect with your doctor.

What is alternate medicine?
There are different medical systems for treatment of many medical conditions which are practiced successfully and beneficially for a large population in some parts of the world. Traditional practices in many cultures include these systems as a part of their religion and a way of life. Chinese medicines, Ayurveda, shiatsu, etc. are prime example of these systems.
Through our service we would like to extend the benefits of alternate medicine to our clients. Please contact us for further details.

What is Ayurveda?
Ayurveda or Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient system of health care that is native to the Indian sub-continent. Ayurveda has always been preserved by the people of India as a traditional "science of life", despite increasing adoption to western medical techniques in recent times. Ayurveda is now a statutory, recognized medical system of health care like other medical systems existing in India. The Central Council of Indian Medicine (CCIM) governs and recommends policies for the research and development of the system
Ayurvedic medicaments are made from finest and specifically chosen herbs or mixtures of herbs, either alone or in combination with minerals, metals and other ingredients of animal origin. Ayurveda as medical treatment for different diseases is being practiced for centuries in India and seems to have worked well for many hundreds of patients in the Indian subcontinent and increasing number of patients from the developed world. There are institutions exclusively for Ayurveda in many countries now.

What is holistic treatment?
The word "holistic" is derived from "whole". The holistic approach to treatment differs from the conventional medical approach. The holistic treatment takes into account the whole patient rather than just focusing on just the symptoms or the part of the body that apparently has the problem. Holistic therapies aim to help the patient restore the balance, thus allowing the body to heal naturally.
Nutrition, emotions, genetics, previous illnesses are some of the factors that can influence our health and hence practioners of holistic treatment take into account all these factors before deciding on their advise or prescriptions for the patients. Many swear by this type of treatment which seems to be attracting a large number of clientele throughout the world.
