Korea Medical Tourism Online Platform

 

 

Korea attracts every year an the important percentage of medical tourists, showing the important potential of the medical tourism industry.  However, a lack of an integrated and systemized regional medical tourism platform and the prevalence of unnecessary information are blocking the vitalization of regional medical tourism in the country.

In this regard, an integrated online platform was established based on discussions with RTO and private institutes (e.g., medical institutes and medical tourism facilitators), in order to provide customized content to beneficiaries and two-way services to both medical service providers and customers. ‘Visit Medical Korea’, an onlne application, led to the opening of 184 microsites by Korean medical institutes and related organizations (129 medical institutes, 46 medical tourism facilitators, and 9 tour service providers), categorizing the services according to 161 themes like health checkups, traditional Korean medicine, skin care/beauty, minor diseases and severe diseases.

Visit Medical Korea, is therefore a useful and convenient tool for foreign tourists who are not familiar with the medical tourism system in Korea, greatly facilitating regional medical tourism in Korea.
