Overburdened healthcare infrastructure and high costs in
the West are the key drivers for the boom in medical
tourism. The healthcare infrastructure in Europe and the
United States is under severe pressure. In Britain, the
National Health Service (NHS) has a long wait list of
patients for surgery.

The Deloitte report says that Indian medical tourism
sector is expected to grow 30% annually up to 2015. An
update on the report says that the U.S. recession is
driving more people out of the country for health care;
U.S. outbound medical tourism is projected to increase
35% annually from 2010-2012.
