The use of telemedicine applications has accelerated the adoption of medical tourism by patients within the worldwide marketplace. As the population ages and continues to travel and vacation within locations that are not always within major cities and hotel chains, there are instances when a patient requires a medical evaluation. Patients may prefer to have their own private physicians be part of that evaluation process. There are also many patients who choose to have a surgical procedure within a foreign country due to economic factors. Patients are able, in some instances, to have both a vacation and undergo surgery (usually a cosmetic procedure) at a lower cost than the surgery alone would cost them at home.
