On this World Health Day we ask you to imagine a world where access to healthcare is not limited to your country borders, or within the narrow scope of your insurance network. What if you could access care - when you want, where you want and at prices that fit your budget?
Well, that is what we heard 3 years ago, when we set out to rally against the traditional healthcare system. Our passionate team at Qunomedical has been and is constantly working hard at breaking conventional barriers on how treatments are offered and accessed by people worldwide.
Over the last few years, there has been a 40% increase in the number of cross-border patients. The number is now estimated between 14-16 million! Our patients are travelling for cardiac conditions, weight loss surgery and dental treatments, amongst others. Cross-border healthcare has truly grown into a global movement and is projected to expand even further.
We believe Qunomedical is playing its part in solving access to treatment globally. Only last year, we helped over 80,000 patients from over 30 different countries access healthcare, a 60% increase in just a year! Ana from Romania travelled to Austria for her heart surgery and here’s what she has to say:
“I needed a highly-complex heart surgery that I was not able to get in my home country. Even if traveling abroad to get a open-heart surgery was daunting at first, I just took the plunge because my life was at risk. Having surgery in Vienna literally saved my life.”
Though there is a long way to go, our aim is to expand and incorporate other healthcare services which will allow us to truly help out and reach individuals in every corner of the globe.
