Excellence for medical tourists
By publishing the distinctive MTQUA Certified Medical Travel seal on your website and in your marketing materials, you declare that your facility or service meets established, practical criteria for providing safety and quality throughout an international patient’s medical journey.
Trusted medical tourism services
MTQUA Medical Travel Certified seal declares to medical tourists that your establishment or service is trustworthy, reliable and responsive regarding their medical treatment and/or care management.
Preferred by medical tourists
MTQUA certification places your hospital, clinic, practice or service on the “preferred” list of those seeking care or referring patients for care such as international insurance and assistance companies.
One certification, one standard, one imprint
By certifying all services that directly impact each medical tourist under one designated seal, it is clear to all partners in the medical tourist care management “chain” that each medical tourist can be certain of a common philosophy and common goals for treatment and care.
Based on real experiences
MTQUA certification guidelines and standards are based on practice and experience. They have been designed by leading medical travel professionals and international patient specialists who have managed care for thousands of medical travelers and expatriates, and tourists with emergencies.
Its international advisory board includes medical travel and health tourism experts and health care professionals who represent a diverse range of medical and health specialties.
MTQUA certification is not a certification of medical quality. It is patient-centered and guided by principles aimed at ensuring a good outcome for each medical tourist. It complements an organization’s medical practices and enhances its ability to provide consistent, world class medical treatment and care management.
