Learn More About Puerto Rico's Himahealth Through New Healthcare Thought Leadership Podcast

San Juan, Puerto Rico (PressExposure) September 01, 2009 -- Healthcare Thought Leadership One-to-One, the new blog associated with Be Seen. Be Heard Inc. is currently featuring HIMAHEALTH Puerto Rico as it’s first of many podcast interviews with business, scientific, and medical experts. HIMAHEALTH’s Armando Rodriguez, MHA, Executive Vice President, a licensed healthcare administrator, and Milton Segarra, Executive Director, whose experience includes hospitality, government, and healthcare, were interviewed about their venture to attract a share of the growing number of U.S. patients traveling abroad for elective medical procedures.

The inaugural two episodes of this podcast examine the growing trend of medical tourism, as it is practiced by HIMAHEALTH, the largest health system in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. As a territory of the U.S., Puerto Rico is subject to the same quality standards, federal laws, and regulations that apply in the 50 States. Yet, HIMAHEALTH realizes 50 to 70 percent in cost savings for employers, health plans, and individuals who travel to Puerto Rico for several elective medical procedures.
