Medical Tourism, Dental Tourism and Global Healthcare

Medical Tourism Social Network Kosansh Beta Launched

Posted on: August 2, 2009

“Kosansh to doctors, hospitals and patients is what cell phones are to others – the more you use it, the more you see the value.  There is no second option to globalization of health care, second opinion services for complicated ailments and tele-medicine for remote medical procedures management”. – Roshan Shah – Founder & CEO, Kosansh

I am pleased to announce the launch of “Kosansh” – a medical tourism social network. While we have not fully hashed out all the bugs but we thought its best to give the tool in the hands of real users.

Kosansh gives tremendous power in hands of hospitals and doctors worldwide who want to market their services. Without any need of a programmer or a webmaster, a hospital administrator or a doctor can easily populate content like news, blog, hospital/doctor profile, testimonials(videos), pictures or even answer health queries in health communities. Doctors and Hospitals do good work but they don’t have a platform to showcase their work to international community. Kosansh provides exactly that – a very strong marketing tool.

Hospitals can add their room pictures, room facilities, hospital facilities, treatments they specialize in, doctors who perform a particular surgery, etc

Portal has capabilities for Medical, Dental, Cosmetic, Wellness and Ayurveda(to be added this week) facilities to be a part of Kosansh.

Room price, Surgery Price in USD can be added and changed at any time by them. Hospitals can also announce tele-medicine services while specialist doctors can announce their offerings of second opinion services.

Hospitals can also optionally add their tie-ups with health insurance companies. For any surgery, they can upload the make, model and year of the equipment they use for this surgery. This way patient will be able to gauge whether they are operated by latest equipment.

Patients will be able to search on various parameters like cost, accreditation, overall patient rating of hospital, facilities, specialization and any of the above parameters. The search results can be filtered further down to help patient nail down to few options for decision making.

Second Opinion services by individual doctors will save patients a lot of time of long queues at doctors. They will also be assured that the best doctors at any part of the world whom they select will be reviewing their file. Kosansh’s “Patient Vault” allows patient to share their medical records electronically with Doctors as well as schedule a telephonic appointment with doctor.

There is also a job board and internal help desk system. Kosansh team provides 18 hours a day 7 days a week support.

In the initial beta launch, we are offering 3 months free membership to hospitals and doctors. Pricing for hospital and doctors start at $250 each annually and goes all the way up to $15,500 (which also includes an offshore full time content writer for the hospital who adds content in kosansh to market hospital services, publish content, upload their testimonials, answer health queries in co-ordination with hospitals, etc)

We are working very hard to populate FAQ and other sections of the site and continue to fix bugs and add new features in the portal.

We are soon going to announce our international network partners who can provide hospitals and doctors training, manpower and support to handle international patients in their respective countries.
