ABOUT THE IMTJ MEDICAL TRAVEL AWARDS
The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards are owned, organised and produced by the International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) publishing and editorial team. IMTJ is hosting the 2019 awards ceremony in conjunction with the IMTJ Medical Travel Summit which takes place in Berlin, Germany on December 1st – 3rd, 2019.
The International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) provides insight into the medical travel and medical tourism sector. IMTJ was established in 2007 in response to the increasing interest in medical travel and medical tourism. It embraces many of the themes that challenge healthcare providers across the world – insurance, accreditation, marketing and promotion, quality, patient safety, levels of care and experience in treating international patients.
IMTJ is independent of the associations and special interest groups that have come aboard the medical tourism bandwagon. Our aim is to create a central focus for information, resources and opinion on medical travel for those involved in the industry, anywhere in the world.
The internationalisation of healthcare through health tourism is at the heart of IMTJ. Patients are becoming healthcare consumers and in many countries, patient choice is being extended to surgery and treatment provided by international hospitals and clinics. By sharing expertise, knowledge, and views the health travel industry can ensure that patient expectations are met, and the industry maintains a high reputation.
The International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) is owned and managed by LaingBuisson International Limited, a UK based online publishing business. The company also operates a consumer facing portal for medical tourism – Treatment Abroad.
