CureIndia set to revitalize the $9 Bn medical tourism industry post COVID

India, 7th December 2021: CureIndia is all set to continue its inspiring journey through the dental and medical tourism industry of India, as international borders have opened up again. The Delhi-based startup is undoubtedly a pivotal reason behind the huge surge in the inflow of medical tourists during the pre-pandemic phase. This time, CureIndia has anticipated to chariot the medical tourism industry by expanding its service base and expecting more international patients than ever post COVID. The medical tourism sector was impacted during the pandemic phase, but the numbers have started rising again, as Govt. is lifting travel restrictions for travelers from all over the world. The inflow of medical tourists comprises nearly 7% of the total international tourists who visit the nation and was around 697,453 in the year 2019. The medical tourism sector clocked a consistent total of 18% rise in the CAGR during the pre-pandemic phase. The industry was expected to reach $9 Billion in the year 2020, which got delayed by the pandemic. Start-ups like CureIndia have proved their efficiency in building the Indian medical tourism sector by providing excellent top to bottom services to their clients. The words of Jasbir Singh, founder of CureIndia, breathe new hope into the industry – ‘Over the years, we have worked with and meticulously identified the best doctors, hospitals, and costs for a particular surgery. We assist international patients in making informed decisions for choosing the best doctor and hospital for their surgery within their budget. We work with both super-specialty JCI hospitals and a number of smaller NABH accredited hospitals to accommodate patients with a budget constraint without compromising with the quality of surgery or care’. Jasbir Singh is a B. Tech graduate from Bharti Vidyapeeth College of Engineering is also a certified Digital Marketer. He has worked with many reputed IT organizations like HCL Technologies as a Team Lead in Software Quality Assurance for more than seven years and has worked on numerous international projects. Around 2012, Jasbir recognized the phenomena of medical tourism while getting his father treated at multi-specialty hospitals in New Delhi/NCR for the treatment brain stroke. He identified the void in the $5 Billion industry and the scope of the same due to the inadequate degree of services provided by a number of unstructured medical tourism facilitators. Consequently, Jasbir incorporated Rejuve India Meditour Pvt. Ltd in 2013 and primarily focused on the medical tourism services in the Delhi/NCR region. He started associating with JCI and NABH accredited hospitals across India and soon made a mark in the Middle East market. In the upcoming years, further MOUs were signed with some of the biggest hospital groups of the country, like Apollo, Medanta, BLK, Artemis, etc. along with a number of smaller single-specialty dental and IVF clinics and hospitals. Jasbir got certified in Digital Marketing and Entrepreneurship from the Delhi School of Internet in 2014 to reach global patients effectively. In the year 2017, he founded CureIndia, a platform for assisting medical tourists in finding the right doctors and hospitals for their medical treatment. CureIndia has so far secured MOUs with more than 50 reputed hospital and healthcare providers of the country and also has assisted medical tourists from more than 25 countries. The platform is available in four languages (English, Russian, Arabic, and Bengali) currently, and planning to expand in and outside India. CureIndia provides end-to-end services tailored for medical tourists in India. Complimentary airport transfers, arranging hotels and guest houses, appointments on priority, surgeon consultations, arrangements for local transit, currency exchange, and pre-treatment care to post-treatment follow-up, etc., are some of the prominent services provided by CureIndia. Aforementioned, the post-pandemic phase is opening the portal of opportunities for the medical tourism industry once again. The central government has eased the restrictions over 99 countries, including Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Nigeria, Ghana, Mauritius, Rwanda, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, etc., that would rejuvenate the industry. India will also resume international flights to all countries from 15 December 2021, after a gap of 20 months, though there will be restrictions on the number of flights permitted from a country depending on its health risk status. USA, Canada, Australia, UAE, Saudi Arabia are permitted to have 100% of pre-COVID capacity. UK, Europe, Singapore, etc will be allowed 75% of pre-COVID flights. This is evident by the initiative of the central government to strengthen the medical tourism sector by formulating a “National Strategy and Roadmap for Medical and Wellness Tourism in India. The idea is to rebuild and catalyze the growth of the industry with the assistance of platforms like CureIndia.
