In 2016, ACAP members formed a Medical Tourism Task Force (MTTF) to study the potential for Croatia to become an industry leader in worldwide medical/health tourism. This group of now more than 140 dedicated volunteers, representing a wide variety of expertise including medicine, finance, business, law, science and technology have convened regularly to pursue preparing Croatia to harness its unique beauty and high-quality medical care to attract patients worldwide.
After a presentation at the 2019 ACAP annual conference in Cleveland, the MTTF decided to collaborate
with Tuck’s School of Business at Dartmouth University, OnSite Global Consulting program to evaluate launching an evidence-based health tourism pilot in Croatia in the next three years.
An ACAP- MTTF virtual webinar was held on April 25 to present the findings and pilot recommendations of the Tuck OnSite Global study to the ACAP-wide membership. A welcome address was delivered by his Excellency Pjer Simunovic, Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia to the USA. Panelists included Medical Tourism Task Force Co-Chairs Dr. Steven Pavletic and Dr. Jeana Havidich, as well as Tuck OnSite Global Program Director Kerry Laufer who opened the forum for questions and discussions following the presentation. The Task Force is currently forming working groups in the areas of Integrated Medical and Wellness Programs; Business (Marketing/Finance/Investment); Technology/Telemedicine; Legal Advice; Travel and Hospitality.
