Health Travel Technologies, architect of the medical tourism industry’s most comprehensive technology and services platform for medical travel management, has signed an agreement with Mexicali Health Care to provide the technology infrastructure for managing its international patient operations.

Mexicali Health Care was formed in response to the long-term trend of US patients – particularly from California and Arizona – crossing the border for dental and surgical care at significant savings over US prices. A recent study by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research estimated that nearly 1 million people from California alone seek medical, dental or prescription services in Mexico each year. Mexicali Health Care’s partnership with health Travel Technologies is designed to keep pace with that demand.

“Mexicali is very serious about becoming a major international healthcare provider,” said Carlo Bonfante, a prominent investor in the Mexicali Health Care enterprise. “As a new entity, Mexicali Health Care was starting at ground zero and needed to work with a company that could guide us in building procedures for establishing a professional system for processing and managing patients. Working with Health Travel Technologies has helped us to get up and running with minimal up-front investment. Now we have the capability to grow our business and focus on health care delivery instead of the details of handling medical tourism.”

“Our core business is providing behind the scenes operational support for international health care providers,” said Health Travel Guides CEO Herb Stephens. ”Our technology platform has been architected specifically to take the headache out of providing medical tourism services for large international hospitals, and our experience on the consumer end enables us to help newer entries into the medical travel field develop a brand and quickly begin generating request for surgery quotes and patient flow.”

Health Travel Guides is the first and only technology and services company dedicated to managing the complex needs and growth of the medical tourism industry. The company’s systems currently process more than 1 million international travelers representing more than $500 million in financial transactions per year.

According to Stephens, Health Travel Technologies is the ideal solution for any business currently offering, or planning to offer, medical travel services – including medical tourism facilitation agencies, online travel agencies, hospitals, insurers and businesses.

“Health Travel Technologies supports the marketing, operations and brand objectives of medical tourism providers; our business model means our success is always aligned with our clients,” said Stephens.

Medical tourism continues to garner considerable attention as a growing number of U.S. employers, consumers and other stakeholders explore cost effective health care options for their organizations. Experts currently estimate the size of the medical tourism market to reach $100 Billion by 2012. According to Stephens, this increased volume creates a significant issue for international health care providers servicing an international patient base.

“Medical tourism is here,” said Stephens. “We’re well beyond the point of asking, is this a safe, quality option? The superb level of health care in Mexico and other countries is indisputable. The question now is how can the growing volume of international patients be most effectively managed?

Health Travel Technologies provides a centralized, automated system for managing medical tourism - not just booking procedures and travel, but also strategic marketing, web page hosting, quote management from multiple sources, as well as accounting, billing, collections, loan servicing and insurance offerings.”
