Madrid, Spain, 2011/05/12 - Expatriate website Just Landed has launched ExpatHealth.org, a website and a newsletter on expatriate healthcare. The publication targets health professionals working with expatriates. It has been launched in partnership with DKV Globality.
ExpatHealth.org offers a one-stop source for international best practices in expatriate health care, expat trends and regulatory changes impacting the health industry.
With more than 200 million people living abroad, the expat health industry has become a multi-billion dollar international business. A growing number of insurance providers, hospitals and medical professionals offer services targeted to expatriates' specific needs.
“Keeping up on the latest trends in international healthcare is critical not only for expatriates, but also for professionals depending on their business", says Daniel Tschentscher, Executive Director at Just Landed. "For nearly a decade we have provided information on countries’ health care systems to millions of expats - now we’re leveraging on that experience to do something similar for business.”
In addition to global issues, ExpatHealth focuses on regional developments impacting the expatriate health industry. Countries such as Australia and the UAE are working to ease the financial burden on their public healthcare systems. Others, like India, are easing regulations and opening their markets up to foreign investment. Medical tourism is on the rise worldwide, and may be a $100 billion industry by 2012.
"Just Landed has eight years of experience marketing health services to expats worldwide," says Tschentscher. "By transferring knowledge between different markets, we have often been able to provide significant value to our customers. On ExpatHealth.org, we aim to provide a platform were companies can identify new business opportunities and learn from best practices in other markets."
ExpatHealth.org will also publish guest posts by industry experts. Contributions are welcome at press[.]expathealth.org.
