There are few sectors that have the strength to maintain a growth rate of 20% per year, and Spanish health tourism is one such case.
ICP Consulting has years of experience in supporting the Spanish private healthcare sector, which has great prestige and international recognition, and aims to continue increasing its quotas in the foreign market and achieve a position as reference destination hospitals. Spain, in turn, maintains a privileged position in terms of its wide hospital network with leading technology, the qualification of its professionals and the potential of its climate, geographic location and the large touristic offer.
A key date in the sector was the entry into force in October 2014 of Directive 2011/24 / EU on the application of patients’ rights in cross-border healthcare, because of its impact on health mobility and its effect on Spanish hospitals in areas with large numbers of European residents and tourists.
ICP Consulting has worked for the most prestigious Spanish centers developing strategies and international channels for attracting foreign patients, providing its commercial network of international agents in the insurance sector, hospitals and receiving centers, medical tourism agencies, as well as brokers and prescribing doctors. At the same time, it has developed high-level agendas both at government level and in the private sector, as well as studies of health policies and analysis of the local situation in countries of interest to its clients.
Our know-how focuses on the countries that choose Spain as their destination for health tourism, mostly European countries (mainly northern and eastern Europe), and Arab countries, both in the Middle East and the Maghreb.
