Vaidam's Take on Catering to the Needs of Multifaceted Food Habits of International Medical Travelers in ET Healthworld

With the rising prominence of medical tourism in India, patients thronging at hospitals from multiple countries can be evidently witnessed. With the evaluation of the ailment follows treatment and finally recovery that may stretch from a few days or weeks to even months. In the Health Files of ET Healthworld, the co-founder of Vaidam, Pankaj Chandna, therefore stresses and elaborates on the importance of the availability of proper accommodation and the need for variety in the platter so as to cater to the individual preferences of international patients.

Because of the existence of extensive variations in global food habits, numerous factors like cultural sensibilities, religious dietery restrictions, allergies and health regulatory diet has to be taken into account while providing food and beverage to medical travellers. Patients want their local food to be served during their stay in the country. 

According to Chandna, a better dining experience can be ensured with the establishment of more food and beverage partnerships for hospitals which will benefit not only the international patients but also their medical attendants.

Similarly, hiring potent translators can solve further problems in communication between patients or their attendants and hotel staffs. Though there is the presence of several food apps, hygiene and certification would further ensure the delivery of a healthy meal to foreign medical travellers.
