SWOT analysis of medical tourism in
India
Strengths:
 Indian doctors are recognized as amongst the best at international levels; skilful,
qualified, share information with patients and are readily available, whenever
required.
 High quality treatment in low cost.
 Medical technology, equipment, facilities and infrastructure are at par with
international standards.
 Doctors and staff good at English which makes it comfortable for tourists from
English speaking countries.
 Because of absence of racial discrimination, customers, especially from Africa,
are comfortable in India
 Education system provides 30,000 doctors and nurses each year which support
the growing medical sector in India.
 Foreigners are also attracted to Indian Systems of Medicine like Ayurveda, Yoga.
Weakness:
 As of 2011, India only had 19 JCI and 63 NABH accredited hospitals which
decreases the size of potential market especially for customers from
developed countries.
 Though the Cost of treatment is less in India, other costs like
accommodation may prove to be inhibitive, especially for customers
from low income economies.
 Maximum medical tourist is from non English speaking parts of the world
which highlights the need for training of linguists for example specialists of
Arabic.
Opportunities:
 Cost of medical treatment in developed western world remaining high,
provides Indian medical tourism sector with a unique opportunity. Patients
from third world countries, where comparable quality medical care is not
available, seek treatment outside their home countries. They compare
western service providers with Indian service providers and find Indian
medical care cost effective.
 The medical care facilities in other South Asian countries are also not up
to the mark. Patients from these countries find good quality care in
neighborhood, where travel time as well as the cultural divide is less.
Continued…
 Employers in US are looking for ways to decrease their employees medical
expenses providing appropriate health coverage concurrently. Employers will
look for low cost care in India and other Asian countries.
 Insurance companies in western countries are offering full cover and care in
home country at a higher premium payment. Insurance companies are
offering packages where customers can choose a lower premium but will
have to get them treated at hospitals with comparable quality outside the
country, with which they have tie-ups. Indian accredited hospitals can
choose to compete for a share of this segment.
 Countries that operate public health-care systems are often so taxed that it
can take considerable time to get non-urgent medical care.
Threats:
 Lack of infrastructure and visa problems.
 High competition from other Asian countries like Singapore, Thailand,
Malaysia etc.
Conclusion
The medical tourism is an outsourcing medical services primarily
expensive surgery to low cost countries. It offers financial value for
growing burden of the costs in matured markets like USA. It also
provides an alternative for millions of uninsured people to receive
affordable and accessible medical services from developing countries.
Medical tourism sector in India is still in a nascent stage. The medical
tourism industry offers high potential for India primarily because of its
inherent advantages in terms of cost and quality. However in the wake
of mounting competition, there is a dire need of careful policy
intervention so as to reap the full benefits from inherent advantages
and enhanced capabilities.

  • 21. SWOT analysis of medical tourism in India Strengths:  Indian doctors are recognized as amongst the best at international levels; skilful, qualified, share information with patients and are readily available, whenever required.  High quality treatment in low cost.  Medical technology, equipment, facilities and infrastructure are at par with international standards.  Doctors and staff good at English which makes it comfortable for tourists from English speaking countries.  Because of absence of racial discrimination, customers, especially from Africa, are comfortable in India  Education system provides 30,000 doctors and nurses each year which support the growing medical sector in India.  Foreigners are also attracted to Indian Systems of Medicine like Ayurveda, Yoga.
  • 22. Weakness:  As of 2011, India only had 19 JCI and 63 NABH accredited hospitals which decreases the size of potential market especially for customers from developed countries.  Though the Cost of treatment is less in India, other costs like accommodation may prove to be inhibitive, especially for customers from low income economies.  Maximum medical tourist is from non English speaking parts of the world which highlights the need for training of linguists for example specialists of Arabic. Opportunities:  Cost of medical treatment in developed western world remaining high, provides Indian medical tourism sector with a unique opportunity. Patients from third world countries, where comparable quality medical care is not available, seek treatment outside their home countries. They compare western service providers with Indian service providers and find Indian medical care cost effective.  The medical care facilities in other South Asian countries are also not up to the mark. Patients from these countries find good quality care in neighborhood, where travel time as well as the cultural divide is less.
  • 23. Continued…  Employers in US are looking for ways to decrease their employees medical expenses providing appropriate health coverage concurrently. Employers will look for low cost care in India and other Asian countries.  Insurance companies in western countries are offering full cover and care in home country at a higher premium payment. Insurance companies are offering packages where customers can choose a lower premium but will have to get them treated at hospitals with comparable quality outside the country, with which they have tie-ups. Indian accredited hospitals can choose to compete for a share of this segment.  Countries that operate public health-care systems are often so taxed that it can take considerable time to get non-urgent medical care. Threats:  Lack of infrastructure and visa problems.  High competition from other Asian countries like Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia etc.
  • 24. Conclusion The medical tourism is an outsourcing medical services primarily expensive surgery to low cost countries. It offers financial value for growing burden of the costs in matured markets like USA. It also provides an alternative for millions of uninsured people to receive affordable and accessible medical services from developing countries. Medical tourism sector in India is still in a nascent stage. The medical tourism industry offers high potential for India primarily because of its inherent advantages in terms of cost and quality. However in the wake of mounting competition, there is a dire need of careful policy intervention so as to reap the full benefits from inherent advantages and enhanced capabilities.
