Under the epidemic, the "crisis" and "opportunity" of medical tourism
In 2020, affected by the epidemic, the flow of medical tourism will show the characteristics of "outgoing transportation suspension-internal transportation increase-slow growth in outgoing transportation". According to the organizer's understanding: in the early stage of the epidemic, all regions strictly restricted entry and exit policies and cross-border passenger flow Exports have almost stagnated; in the middle of the epidemic, patients’ medical needs urgently need to be alleviated, and most of them are transferred to relevant international hospitals in China for digestion. As a result, the number of patients in relevant domestic hospitals has risen sharply; now as the epidemic eases, many low-risk areas For example, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Ukraine, Singapore, and Hong Kong have all heard good news about cross-border policies, and some people have gone abroad to seek medical tourism services. Although it will take time for the market to get back on track, there is already a momentum for recovery.
When it comes to the future development prospects of the medical tourism industry, Niu Song, the organizer of the CMTF, believes that “the development trend and popularity of medical tourism will not change due to the epidemic, because it is very important to promote the economic recovery of medical tourism destination countries. The country is bound to introduce more preferential policies to attract patients. In addition, the epidemic has made people pay more attention to medical health, and it is expected that people's health consumption needs will be further released in the post-epidemic era. At the same time, the epidemic will help the industry to reshuffle, and the companies that have persisted are in The probability of gaining market share in the later period is also greater, and the industry is bound to develop towards more professionalism and quality."
