In order to foster the acceptance of inbound medical travelers by Japanese medical institutions, Medical Excellence JAPAN (MEJ) recommends hospitals that have the desire and are working to accept such medical travelers as Japan International Hospitals (JIH), and disseminates relevant information overseas in cooperation with the Japanese government.
For information provision, MEJ launched a special website, “JAPAN Hospital Search,” in multiple languages, namely, English, Chinese, Russian, and Japanese.JAPAN Hospital Search
People outside Japan can make use of the JIH website (http://www.japanhospitalsearch.org/) to choose a hospital that provides medical services suited to their needs from among the recommended hospitals. They then apply to utilize the required medical services through an Accredited Medical Travel Assistance Company (AMTAC), which supports them from their arrival in Japan to their return home.
After medical travelers come to Japan, interpreters will escort them to the medical facilities so that they can receive medical services with peace of mind. At the same time, by cooperating with an AMTAC, hospitals recommended as JIH can readily accommodate medical travelers from overseas and provide them with medical services in a routine fashion.
