Unfortunately, health indicators regarding to clinical and service quality indicators and factors which may play role in patient choice of country/hospital. e.g. safety, use of clinical protocols are very scarce and are not available for majority of the leading health tourism countries.

In conclusion the costs of treatment combined with certain indicators can be the influencers of choice for health tourism.
