Tamil Nadu Travel Mart to focus on Medical Tourism

The upcoming Tamil Nadu Travel Mart (TTM), scheduled from September 19-22, at Chennai Trade Centre, will have a parallel event- Tamil Nadu Medical Travel Mart, in association with Health Department Government of Tamil Nadu. The event will reiterate the importance of Tamil Nadu in the medical value travel sector. India has the finest and one of the largest pools of doctors and paramedics in South Asia, with many of them being of global repute. India’s expertise in highly specialized areas of organ transplants, orthopaedics, cardiology, oncology, neurology etc. has made the country an emerging hotspot for Medical Value Travel (MVT). The three-day conference and exhibition would also have B2B meetings. The two-day conference would focus on not only making Tamil Nadu as preferred Medical Tourism destination (In terms of safety, quality, cost and clinical excellence), but also health insurance; role of healthcare facilitator; role of Government to promote MVT; challenges in health Insurance & MVT; regulations in MVT (VISA Liberalisation Policy); importance of cultural competency / support services in international patient care (language, food, transport); and the future of telemedicine & MVT.
