Medical tourism interview: Curtis Schroeder of Bumrungrad International

After spending a week on medical tourism in Korea, you might think I’d take a break from the topic, but instead I’m attending the International Medical Tourism Conference in Washington, DC through Wednesday.

Earlier today I interviewed Curt Schroeder, Group CEO of Bumrungrad International of Bangkok, Thailand. We spoke about numerous topics including the magnitude and drivers of cost differences between Thailand and the US, the role of information technology at Bumrungrad and Microsoft’s recent purchase of Global Care Solutions, which has partnered with Bumrungrad on software development. We also discussed the number and nature of foreign patients, outcomes measurements, accreditation and the future of medical tourism.
