The international Healthcare Revolution conference was staged in Orlando on 28-30 October 2018. The event focuses on the latest medical news from all over the world and includes the sector of health tourism. The Polish offer of health services was showcased at the stand of Polish Tourism Organisation (Polska Organizacja Turystyczna - POT) and other exhibitors, i.a. the Spec-Med Hospital in Krosno, the Wolmed Clinic and the Olandia complex. Potential contracting parties visiting the national stand were particularly interested in the offer of treatments in the branches of oncology, cardiology and orthopaedics. In addition to visitors from the US, there were also guests from all over the world, i.a. Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Turkey.
In the course of the event, Magdalena Rutkowska, an expert of the health tourism stand, discussed the offer of health services available in Poland. The presentation was highly popular with delegates from other countries congratulating Poland its inclusion on the world map of health tourism as the sole representative of Central-Eastern Europe. In addition, they inquired about the plans and details of the programme intended to promote Polish health services in the coming years of 2019-2020.
