MVP Platform Development
In early 2016, we finalized our business model and began scope on building our technology platform as an MVP (minimal viable product). We acquired Canadian medical tourism companies IP and Assets to boost our start and test our workflow and processes.
Aquisitions and Acceleration
After further detailed analysis of the global medical tourism industry, we acquired medical tourism pioneer, Gorgeous Getaways (2004) to accelerate our market share into Australia and New Zealand.
Partner and Marketplace Expansion
Following two acquisitions in 2016, we renegotiated existing relationships with top tier hospitals in Malaysia and Thailand while the company doubled overnight, featured globally on a Netflix docuseries "Beauty and the Beach". The marketplace took shape featuring over 500 healthcare packages with transparent pricing. Consumer traffic doubled from the US and Canada.
New Markets and Technology Innovation
In 2017, we negotiated new partners in new geographic markets like Japan, Taiwan, and South Korea and accelerated the development of our medical tourism partner platform and partner strategy.
Partner Expansion and Collaboration
In 2018, we invited select partners from Thailand, Malaysia, and Mexico into our health ecosystem to share our technology platform with a focus to reduce operational costs and duplication of resource effort and improve joint operational efficiencies.
B2C with Focus on Increased B2B Collaboration
2019 is focused on B2B growth in existing international markets as well as top-rated domestic healthcare markets in Canada and the United States. 2019 will also see an increased focus on medical treatments like orthopedics and bariatrics as well as new service development for medical records retrieval, second opinion, and insurance verification.
We simplify access to high-quality, affordable healthcare without boundaries and restrictions, that is price transparent and powered by connected patients who want to take control of their healthcare.
