EDITOR'S LETTER
 

Medical Tourism is an emerging industry advocated by governments in many countries.

You may find an interesting piece entitled "Experience a Top Notch Medical Treatment & Hotel Stay... in One @Farrer Park Hospital" to read. Farrer Park Hospital (FPH) is a new private hospital in Singapore, situated in a hospital-hotel-specialist medical centre integrated complex. One of FPH’s unique features is a personal tablet provided to each inpatient for meal ordering, shopping, and other leisure purposes, further ensuring a comfortable and convenient stay in the hospital.

Mr Cherinjit Kumar Shori, Group Chief Operating Officer at the Asian American Medical Group, has attributed ‘Offering personal touch” as the reason why Singapore continues to have an edge in medical tourism over other neighbouring competitors despite its strong currency. Let alone the efforts of healthcare providers to make foreign patients feel welcome, secure and at ease, the quality of clinical care, and the advanced technology and robust infrastructure. Multiple factors add up, attracting patients from overseas to receive treatment in Singapore.

"Top Medical Tourism Hotspots" introduces the top 3 Asian countries where medical tourists flock to. Do you realise there is a growing trend of medical spa treatments in Asia? There is also an article about hospitality bridging healthcare (H2H), extracted from Dr. Frederick J. DeMicco’s new book, which looks at the merging of hospitality, wellness and medical practices.

In the Spotlights section, APBN features a heart failure study, ASIAN-HF, which found that the average age of Asian heart failure patients is 10 years younger than patients in U.S. or Europe. The scientists and researchers are aspired to collect adequate data to understand the factors behind heart failure diseases in Asians.
