These two factors will bring new market opportunities for corporations looking to cut costs and tackle these issues. This congress will discuss how medical tourism is an example of an innovative market solution that has gained popularity due to its high quality, yet cost effective nature and its ability to provide healthcare access to the uninsured individuals.
