SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Korea’s advanced medical technology attracts many foreigners to visit Korea for medical tourism and treatment each year.
From 2009 to 2019, the number of accumulated patients was 2.76 million with an annual average growth rate of 20.8%.
In 2019 alone, 29,897 Russian patients visited Korea which is a 10% year-over-year growth. The annual average increase rate was 32.8% since 2009.
The Korean Accreditation Program for Hospitals serving Foreign patients (hereinafter referred to as “KAHF”) is a program to select and designate Korean medical institutions that offer excellent international medical services and ensure a safe system for patients.
The assessment is divided into two segments: the “Specialized System for International Patients” that assesses international medical services offered to international patients and the level of satisfaction; and the “Patient Safety System” that assesses the safety of the treatment environment within the medical institution.
35 different criteria consist of roughly 150 items for investigation including the medical institution’s performance on attracting international patients, whether the institution has a pool of professionals, prevention of medical disputes, ensuring patient safety, patient treatment, infection control, etc. For accreditation, medical institutions must have all items cleared.
Currently, four medical institutions have been accredited and offer excellent medical services: CHA Fertility Center, JK Plastic Surgery Center, HanGil Eye Hospital, and Kim Byoung Joon Ledas Varicose Vein Clinic.
