AAAASFI-accredited facilities now profiled by Patients Beyond Borders

Patients Beyond Borders is an organization dedicated to connecting patients with high-quality, affordable medical care throughout the world. The organization produces publications and Web materials that profile American-accredited healthcare settings and inform patients about the options and considerations relevant to patients pursuing healthcare in trustworthy, safe facilities. In collaborating with various Ministries of Health, Ministries of Tourism, public-private initiatives and associations, Patients Beyond Borders attempts to prepare patients to make confident and well-informed healthcare decisions.

The organization's website includes information on identified health travel destinations including country profiles, common specialties, patient stories and accredited facilities. Until recently Patients Beyond Borders has focused primarily on international hospitals, a common approach to the development of medical travel throughout the world. Now, however, with outpatient clinics proliferating rapidly all over the world, Patients Beyond Borders is expanding its focus to ambulatory facilities, advising on outpatient and ambulatory settings that provide safe care in each of the profiled destinations.

Patients Beyond Borders has begun listing facilities accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities International on its website with a brief facility profile, along with information about AAAASFI. Several AAAASFI-accredited clinics in Latin America have recently been added to its roster of leading international healthcare destinations.
