The Clinic Finder Goes Global

Following its successful UK launch, The Clinic Finder has now gone global. As well as launching locally into more than thirty countries it has also integrated a Medical Tourism option, which lets prospective patients find clinics overseas. Adding the Medical Tourism section brings important benefits to patients looking for the widest choice of healthcare and clinics looking to attract patients from other countries.

It is estimated that the number of people taking advantage of Medical Tourism now exceeds 5 million people per year and is growing at a rate of 20-30% annually.  By 2012 revenue from Medical Tourism is expected to reach US$100 billion, up from US$40 billion in 2004.

David Nicholls, Managing Director and one of the founders of The Clinic Finder, said "We were amazed at the high level of interest from clinics in over 30 overseas countries when we launched; so much so that we decided to bring forward our plans for reaching a global market and offering the Medical Tourism option as quickly as we could. We originally hadn't planned to go global until well into 2012.”
“We wanted to differentiate from our competitors by integrating the Medical Tourism search results right into the local search results as our research showed that many people don’t automatically consider the idea of travelling abroad for treatment. This is partly because they don’t know the facility exists and partly because they don’t realize that the costs could be considerably lower for comparative facilities and expertise. We think we've got it right."
The Clinic Finder is a health based search engine that helps prospective patients locate and choose a clinic either around the corner or across the globe. The unique search engine lets patients search by condition/ailment, service/treatment/procedure or profession. Further details can be found at http://www.theclinicfinder.com
