Transforming Access to Healthcare: Startup Offers Access to High Quality Medical Care Abroad

go to original
December 15, 2014

The one-year old Berlin-based startup MEDIGO has partnered with close to 400 internationally accredited hospitals and clinics to serve more than 1,500 patients for procedures ranging from dental implants to hip replacements to liposuction to cutting-edge treatments for cancer.

In the past year, an estimated 7 million patients chose to receive a better healthcare experience outside of their home country. Their incentives included higher quality healthcare, shorter waiting times or financial savings on treatment that may not have been otherwise possible. International hospital accreditations, such as Joint Commission International (JCI) provide patients with the assurance that hospitals abroad are not a compromise on the quality of care.

MEDIGO was developed for and with these patients. It is the world’s first and only platform that allows patients to compare prices of medical treatment and book a medical procedure online in a selection of high quality hospitals worldwide. MEDIGO is novel in that it introduces the marketplace concept to health care; for patients, this means freedom to choose when and where they are treated and the knowledge of how much they will spend on medical treatment.

“The response that we’ve seen shows just how many patients want to regain control of their healthcare,” said Pawel Cebula, COO. “We are empowering patients to get the treatments they need… and revolutionizing the industry by making price transparency for procedures a new standard in health care.” Pawel Cebula and his co-founders, Ugur Samut and Ieva Soblickaite, founded the company with the mission of supporting patients to become active participants in their healthcare decision-making. The rapidly growing number of MEDIGO patients represent a significant force for the globalization in the hyper-localized health care industry.
