Abstract
The medical tourism / service field is currently troubled by agent problems and no platform is available to solve
them. There are currently four major agent problems.
1.
The question of brokerage expenses: An agent exists to ensure reliability between the
consumer and provider of health care. But it soon led to complicated processes and inevitably
led to higher brokerage expenses.
2.
Central agency incompetence and corruption: Medical tourism consumers and medical
institutions must comply because the agent has control of information and currency transac-
tions. In the end, if an agent is incompetent or corrupt, it hurts all participants.
3.
Target of hacking: Since all information and books are concentrated in one place, it is easy to
become target of hacking.
4.
Trust issue: Medical institutions and consumers lack the space to build trust, which in turn
leads to a lack of trust with each other.

1. Introduction
Currently, medical tourism consumers
1
request information from various medical institutions and agents to
receive better medical services, but most of the medical service information is managed by individual medical
institutions. Information exchange outside of the medical institution is only to disclose basic information
through various media, and accurate information is not provided to medical consumers who are unlikely to be
patients. In addition, the disclosure of medical service information centered on individual medical institutions
is subjective, difficult to compare the quality of medical services, and a large amount of money is paid to agents
and coordinators in addition to medical services. Therefore, medical consumers are not able either receive the
medical services that they really need, or the quality and satisfaction of the medical services get low. To solve
this problem, various projects such as the international medical coordinator licen...

1.1.1 Trends of Worldwide Medical Tourism
By 2016, the global medical tourism market is worth around USD $ 1.97 billion. It is expected to grow 18.8%
annually by 2021 and reach USD $ 4.66 billion. The global medical tourism market is also divided into treatment
types, mainly into orthopedic, cardiovascular, dental, cosmetic, infertility, neurological, cancer, and others.
In particular, by 2021, the APAC market is expected to lead the world, and according to Technavio's research,
more than 50% of medical tourism is expected to be dominated by the APAC market and in contrast to specific
countries, it is found that the cost deduction, in particular, plays a big role. For example, according to Patients
Beyond Borders, it is believed that the following amount is deductible in US dollars: Brazil 20-30%, India
65-90%, Malaysia 65-80%, Mexico: 40-65%, Singapore: 25-40%, South Korea: 30 -45%, Taiwan: 40-55%,
Thailand: 50-75%, Turkey: 50-65%.

If we look at the number of Korean tourists by country in detail, we can see that Chinese account for more than
30% of the total number of patients, followed by the United States, Russia, and Japan. This indicates that a coun-
try with a high geographical proximity to Korea is a major contributor, and furthermore, it shows that there's a
steady increase in the number of Chinese people since 2011.

The main reason why foreigners decide to visit Korea as their medical tourism destination is because they
believe that the medical staff there possess the most excellent medical skill. Based on the Korean medical tour-
ism marketing survey with 1056 samples, about 70% of the respondents, if duplicate response is accepted, or
about 50% of the respondents, if only the biggest reason was to be chosen, responded that they chose Korea
as their medical tourism destination because of the excellent skill of the Korean medical staff, followed by trust
in medical institutions, high-tech medical equipment, and human infrastructure for foreigners.

1.2 Problems of Medical Markets & Tourism
1.2.1 Difficulties faced by Medical Consumer
1.2.1.1 High Medical Charge Fee and Waiting Time in Korea
With the development of new medical technologies and the rising cost of labor and medical treatment materi-
als, there are many places where the charge fee for medical services is rising to higher levels each year. The cost
of some of the latest medical technologies is way too high for consumers to pay. However, the rate of increase
in the income of medical consumers has not been able to keep up with the increase in the charge fee of medi-
cal services. For example, according to the Dental Departure, in the US, Canada, and Australia, the medical cost
of an implant is $ 3000, which is a huge economic burden on consumers and making them reluctant to treat.
Also, the number of physicians compared to the population is insufficient. According to the data from the World
Health Organization (WHO), more than 45% of WHO members have less th...

1.2.2 Difficulties faced by Medical Provider
1.2.2.1 Difficulty in Consultation and Promotion
Currently, most medical providers are not effectively promoting. Although they do promote by creating home-
pages for their medical staff and institution, it is difficult to find a medical consumer if you do not register and
pay a promotion company or a search site such as Goodoc. In addition, there is limited space for advertising,
and private medical providers, who are economically and scarcely abbreviated, cannot overcome the economic
power of large hospitals, making it difficult to promote their own hospitals. Also, many medical institution
promotion websites do not provide detailed sub-category search services, so it is difficult to promote the
specialized expertise of the medical provider to patients[8].
1.2.2.2 Reliability of Medical Staff and Medical Institutions
The credibility of the provider does not build up overnight. A lot of time, effort and money are invested and
