The Global Healthcare industry is in process of internationalization. Patients are travelling longer distances for medical care. This has given rise to a Global Medical Tourism Industry which has an annual turnover of more than 100 billion dollars and is growing by more than 20% each year. This has led to more competition for patients and more innovation and specialization of hospitals. The lecture gives an overview of this industry and looks at the opportunities that globalization provides.
