The Medical Tourism Association Fails the Transparency Test! No surprise.
No response to my request for answers by the deadline so I think we can fairly say the MTA's claims of transparency and responsiveness are just not true.
The heat is turning up on Linked-In industry blogs, too. There is at least a baseball team's worth of industry members who are questioning public MTA posts. This is new.
Sources tell me that the MTA silences critics with cease and desist letters, so this level of confrontation is unusual because it could create personal risk. The "baseball" team is asking for real information....real answers. With all the hubbub, I won't be surprised to see mainstream press pick up the topic soon. Think about lively international incidents and fun potential headlines, like "Our Governments paid how much for what?".
Picture this...the industry Titan who was removed by security from the Medical Tourism Congress...on the same speaking panel in Portugal, with the person who made the decision to remove him. Awkward!
Today I got a marketing oriented email from the Medical Tourism Association.
