Health tourism has the potential to be developed

11 September 2020 (Readers 212)

 
Sophisticated facilities and technology are among the key drivers to Health Tourism whose quality services are recognised by international accreditation.
 
 
TUTONG, Wednesday, August 26. - Health tourism is a travel package that combines treatment and holiday activities. Nowadays, health tourism is gaining more attention and has the potential to be explored. This is because patients will find quality treatment methods at affordable prices.
 
In addition, these health tourists will also definitely look for a complete health package that includes quality health care, communication facilities, travel facilities and accessibility.

One of the drivers of health tourism is having highly skilled specialist doctors and nurses; quality of health care facilities and technology; as well as a high level of health care.

Another factor that determines success in the health tourism sector is hospitals that are certified with quality services by international accreditation such as the Joint Commission International (JCI).

JCI is one of the most prestigious organisation in the world providing international healthcare accreditation to hospitals.

The accreditation is a symbol of quality that reflects the organisation's commitment in providing the best care for patients and adherence to best business practices.

One of the private hospitals in the country that is accredited by JCI is Gleneagles Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC).

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic which hit the world also affected the Health Tourism sector following the Movement Control Order (MCO), which tightened the exit and entry routes of their respective countries severely affected by the outbreak.

One of the main purposes of the order is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among the community as well as public places.

Patients receiving treatment in public and private hospitals in the country is much more than patients in Health Tourism.

With the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is hoped that the Health Tourism sector will recover and receive the entry of tourists from abroad to undergo health treatment available in the country.
