Wellness, Health, and Medical Tourism have been one of the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy’s strategies for industry revival since the pandemic of COVID-19 hits. According to Future Market Insights Global and Consulting Pvt. Ltd., the global Medical Tourism market is expected to be valued at US$ 5.2 Billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 30.5% between 2022 and 2032, totaling around US$ 75 Billion by 2032.
“We believe that our technology and services can serve a broader range of travel demands and purposes than just leisure. Our collaborations pave the way and build a roadmap in contributing to Indonesia’s wellness, health, and medical tourism industry,” says Johanes (Joe) Chang, NusaTrip’s CEO.
Joe further highlights NusaTrip’s mission to become a world-class OTA and the most reliable partner that offers a wide range of travel and tourism-related products, services, and experiences to our customers and business partners globally. As the travel industry recovers, NusaTrip continues working within the larger digital ecosystem of Society Pass to offer richer travel products and services for our consumers and partners across Indonesia and Southeast Asia.
NusaTrip aims to improve the efficiency of the emergency travel or medical evacuation for patients in need and to support the home care or onsite health care services offered by many doctors, hospitals, and clinics. As NusaTrip’s partner of choice, the Indonesian health technology company, Periksa.id has been providing an extensive solution to digitize and improve the quality of healthcare facility services in Indonesia.
The Founder and CEO of Periksa.id, Sutan Imam Abu Hanifah explains, “Our new collaborative feature will help doctors and medical staff to easily check the airline’s schedule and seat availability for various arrangements, from purchasing tickets for patients in care who are in need of emergency travel or medical evacuation, assisting doctors on business trips such as regular meetings and attending conferences, to helping medical staffs in finding good deals for their short break or recharge.”
He adds that through the collaboration, Periksa.id users can now use and exchange their loyalty points for travel-related products and services on NusaTrip, and the company has received positive feedback since its launch.
The collaboration of NusaTrip and Periksa.id is one of many partnerships to come in gearing up towards the recovery of the travel industry in Indonesia and SEA by 2023/ 2024, following the OTA’s acquisition in July 2022 by Society Pass, a global digital commerce ecosystem and loyalty platform company operating in 5 major markets in SEA. With strong support and the new digital ecosystem from Society Pass, NusaTrip enhances its capability to embark on regional expansion and unlimited avenues to grow more channels and revenue streams.
