By launching the “Medical Korea” brand in 2009 and hosting the Medical Korea Conference in 2010, KHIDI began to actively promote Korea’s medical services to the world. Driven by such strategic marketing activities, a survey in the first half of 2017 showed that 360,000 (810,000 on a yearly basis) international patients visited Korea.

Furthermore, 155 Korean healthcare providers expanded their service and system abroad.

Intermedika Case Management tool is the worlds first software specially built for clinics & hospitals in the medical tourism industry to manage cases efficiently and to develop stronger relationships with agents & facilitators.
Consumerism in healthcare whether we like or not like is no longer a fad. In order for healthcare providers to attract more self-pay patients, they need to be innovative and adopt technology that will provide insights into their business, accelerate treatment quoting, book appointments fast and reduce admin.
Managing cases through email and excel spreadsheets is not only not productive – it’s not safe or secure. Intermedika solves that with a centralised view enabling stakeholders to collaborate seamlessly from a single point of engagement for all patient data. Most importantly Intermedika helps increase patient acquisition, conversion and profitability.
