3. Description of Service

International Medical Treatment (IMT) is a medical tourism provider and health tech provider striving to simplify the process for those seeking medical and health treatment internationally. We work with a number of JCI accredited hospitals in medical tourism destinations that offer treatment and care. We help liaise with our partner hospitals to get clients access to different Services from the hospitals. This includes: quotes on the cost of their proposed treatment, as well as help in booking the clients’ travel; coordination for, and facilitation of telemedicine consultations; coordination for, and facilitation of detailed case reviews and second opinions; creation of platforms that make it easier for clients to correspond and communicate with doctors and other medical professionals at the hospitals; and other related services aimed to assist patients to seek and obtain medical treatment and health services.

4. Not a Health Care or Medical Service Provider and No Practice of Medicine by IMT

IMT is not a healthcare service provider and as such we will never provide direct medical advice on a client’s treatment or health. IMT does not control or operate any medical facility offered by the hospital or treating institution. IMT is a medical tourism facilitator and health tech provider, and we only suggest high quality hospitals that have been vetted by us, however it is up to the client to choose which hospital is right for them. We only work to help link the client to high quality licensed hospitals and doctors to help to coordinate the client’s treatment or communication with a licensed medical service provider. Any treatment plans or advice given will never be from IMT, only from a licensed doctor at one of the hospitals we work with.

Some of the IMT Services provide users with online access to Specialists who may provide health education to Users who have chosen to participate in this Service.
