MedHalt - Actualising The Potential Of Medical Tourism

Medical tourism is the popular trend of crossing international borders, to seek medical care in a foreign destination, at affordable costs. More than 11 million patients travel abroad each year, to undergo advanced treatments that are unavailable in the home country or only available at lengthy waiting times. 

This travel outside the home country, is made possible due to increasingly liberal visa requirements and insurance portability around the world, along with an increase in demand among patients, for recuperating in exotic foreign locales. Surgeries performed in these state of the art hospitals cost as low as 50-90% of the costs in US. Medical tourism services offered by is making international healthcare increasingly accessible and convenient.

MedHalt uses this reality to their advantage, and enables a large global population, to avail best quality healthcare at exceedingly low prices.

As an opportunity in disguise, after suffering from a recurring toothache for 10 days, while waiting for an appointment and finding no reliable help in US doctors, Udit came up with the idea of building a medical tourism company.
