PLAN YOUR VISIT
We have tried to simplify all procedures for visiting international patients. For a patient to plan a visit to India for medical treatment purposes, we recommend a dozen simple steps to ensure a hassle free process. To begin with we identify a coordinator who is assigned to you, from the time you land in India and during the entire stay. In fact the patient coordinator's work begins way before you land in India.
Patient coordinator requests patient's medical reports as soon as he/ she show interest in seeking a medical opinion from a relevant medical practitioner.
Medical coordinator consults the treating/ referral doctor and takes medical opinion on :
- Treatment recommended
- Stay required in hospital and for review
- Estimated cost of treatment all inclusive
- Post discharge care and visit for review in 6/ 12 months
Patient confirms that he/ she will to avail treatment at KIMS.
Our team sends a Visa Facilitation Letter to the concerned Indian High Commission in the patient's native country. Followed by letter to the patient, his/her attendants close visa formalities.
Patient confirms arrival date and time to the International division. Manager in charge sends a letter confirming doctor's appointment, accommodation booking, etc.
Patient coordinator meets and greets the patient at the Airport and escorts the patient either to the hospital or guest house.
Patient arrives at the hospital and admission formalities are completed.
The hospital arranges for Foreigners Registration of the patient at the local authority (FRRO).
Patient undergoes initial evaluation, consults the treating doctor and is given the detailed plan of treatment.
Patient undergoes treatment/surgery.
Patient settles the bills before being discharged and is either shifted to the guest house or escorted to the airport.
If required there is a follow up call/ Skype/ video conferencing, etc.
