About Temos International

Founded in 2010, Temos International Healthcare Accreditation is the only worldwide independent accreditation body focused on the quality of international patient management from the medical and non-clinical perspectives.

Temos helps hospitals, clinics and medical travel coordinators to find their highest levels of performance to deliver top quality for the international patients and medical travelers they serve and to continuously take care of their quality. By working collaboratively, Temos International encourages innovation and avoid the “one size fits” all approach to accreditation which does not work across cultures for providers or patients. With its deep understanding of universal standards of quality and cultural differences in expectations around the patient experience, Temos raises clinical standards, improve clinical and non-clinical outcomes as well as patient safety, and reduces costs for overall client satisfaction.

About IMTJ

The International Medical Travel Journal provides insight into the medical travel and medical tourism sector. IMTJ was established in 2007 in response to the increasing interest in medical travel and medical tourism. It embraces many of the themes that challenge healthcare providers across the world – insurance, accreditation, marketing and promotion, quality, patient safety, levels of care and experience in treating international patients.

IMTJ is independent of the associations and special interest groups that have come aboard the medical tourism bandwagon. Our aim is to create a central focus for information, resources and opinion on medical travel for those involved in the industry, anywhere in the world.

The internationalisation of healthcare through health tourism is at the heart of IMTJ. Patients are becoming healthcare consumers and in many countries, patient choice is being extended to surgery and treatment provided by international hospitals and clinics. By sharing expertise, knowledge, and views about the health travel industry, IMTJ helps to ensure that patient expectations are met, and that the industry maintains a high reputation.

The International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) is owned and managed by LaingBuisson. The company also operates a consumer facing portal for medical tourism – Treatment Abroad.
