The health & wellness care industry is currently dominated by doctors or agent / medical facilitators, patient today goes to the hospital either recommended by his treating doctor, family & friends or agent. Today patient does not have the convenience to choose or compare the treatment plan or cost other details. He is left with limited choice and end of getting the wrong treatment or paying a higher amount. eExpedise was formed with a view to ensuring transparency, ease and enhance customer experience during the medical treatment lifecycle including the introduction of technology in service delivery process. The organization manages the complete lifecycle of the patient and enables a patient to choose right & quality healthcare provider as per the budget, preference and expertise.

The growth of Indian Medical Tourism Industry can be accredited to both government and private players. By making the process simple and seamless along with drafting policies ensuring complete transparency and patient safety, the government is strengthening the cause. For instance, policies such as the introduction of Medical VISA and e-Medical VISA allowing multiple entries and longer stays as per medical conditions have been implemented. Further, the government is actively mandating accreditations to wellness centers and Medical Value Travel (MVT) facilitators.
The country has understood the significance and the immense potential for medical tourism to thrive in the global market. By initiatives such as launching several incentive schemes for healthcare providers and promoting them in international events, an effective public-private partnership is emerging in the sector. This, along with the cost benefits and localized resource advantages, is strengthening India’s position as a high potential hub in the medical tourism market.
