Are Japanese Interested in Outbound Medical Tourism?

Medical tourism—which takes in anyone who crosses international borders to receive medical care—is a very healthy industry. Patients Beyond Borders believes the market is worth between US$24 and $40 billion, based on approximately eight million cross-border patients worldwide spending an average of US$3,000 to $5,000 per visit. Professor Helmut Wachowiak, an expert on tourism management at the International University of Applied Sciences at Bad Honnef in Germany, says the market is already worth $40 billion to $60 billion, and is growing at about 20 percent a year.

Japanese Hospital Visit - Seven things you need to know

Navigating a healthcare system in a foreign country is seldom easy, especially if you don’t know the system or speak the language well. Before you visit a Japanese hospital—on an emergency basisor otherwise—here are seven things you should know:

Japan's medical system provides some of the world’s best healthcare

To gauge a health-care system’s success, it’s standard to consider three points: quality, coverage, and cost. On all three measures, Japan stands at or near the top in every comparative ranking. The Japanese have the world’s longest life expectancy and the best recovery rates from just about every major disease. Infant mortality is less than half the U.S. rate. Japan usually leads the world in rankings of “avoidable mortality” -its effectiveness in curing diseases that can be cured.
