Falling insurance coverage: Is there no hope?

Satori World Medical--healthcare cost--image credit:

According to studies from the Commonwealth Fund, working-class Americans whose wages have declined during the last decade also had their health insurance reduced, exposing them to unaffordable medical costs.

The amount of working-class adults in America who lacked adequate insurance coverage is on the rise, from 16 million in 2003 to 29 million in 2010. According to the Commonwealth Fund’s Senior Vice President Cathy Schoen, the underinsured are at a high risk as the uninsured because holes or limits in their plans expose them to unaffordable medical costs. These ballooning medical costs eat into these workers’ meager earnings.

The amount of middle-income workers who lost insurance coverage over the last decade also increased, from 46 million in 2003 to 52 million in 2010. This means that nearly half the working age population in the United States does not have insurance protection. In addition, with rising out-of-pocket medical bills, even insured workers are having a hard time making payments.

Is there still hope?

For proponents and supporters of medical travel, the answer is yes. Medical travel continues to provide Americans with top-notch medical experience. In fact, there is a steady rise in people opting to have their procedures done outside the country, where medical costs are lower but the quality of service and hospital facilities are at par, or even better, than those in the United States.

Medical travel: Less of a burden for employers and employees

As health care costs continue to accelerate at a fast rate, more and more employers plan to increase deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums and employees’ contribution to their premiums.

Satori World Medical--Less of a burden for employers and employees--image credit:

This means that health care costs are getting passed on to employees, increasing their financial burden.

However, proponents of medical travel believe that medical travel, due to the cheaper costs of having procedures done outside of the United States, helps in alleviating employee and employer burdens of paying exorbitant fees, as well as decreasing the overall healthcare costs in the United States.

Satori World Medical --Healthcare cost--image credit:

Even though the number of people who are taking advantage of medical travel is increasing every year, there are still a lot of people who are averse to getting treatments outside the United States, with safety and health care quality the primary concern. However, as the quality of health care provided by hospitals located in medical travel destinations is at par with local health care, those concerns are largely unfounded. Furthermore, hospitals in medical travel destinations are accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), the international branch of the Joint Commission (JC), which accredits well-known US hospitals, like the Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland, and the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

Steven Lash: The man who changed health care

Image credit:

When Steven Lash first received his bachelor’s degree in business from the State University of New York at Binghamton and then his master’s degree in business administration from the University of San Diego, it never came to his mind that, in just a few short decades, he would be the man who would change health care.

Lash spent more than 18 years with Sharp Healthcare, working his way up, until he became the lead person on the executive team who designed, acquired, and implemented the business plan that transformed Sharp from a single stand-alone hospital into a multi-dimensional, vertically integrated healthcare delivery system.

Image credit:

Aside from this, Steven Lash was also a private consultant who provided consulting services to a national dental company on operational infrastructure and to a New York–based investment bank on healthcare services. Before founding Satori World Medical, he was president of Woodward Laboratories and, prior to that, was president and CEO of DermTech International. Both companies' revenues and cash flows more than doubled under his leadership.

Image credit:

Steven Lash is the founder, president, and CEO of Satori World Medical, a company that provides world-class health care at a fraction of the cost. Satori World Medical received wide acclaim due to its business model, and was honored by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the 100 Brilliant Companies to Watch in 2009.

Steven Lash: Satori World Medical gives hope

Building a multi-million dollar business from scratch is never easy. As a businessman, Steven Lash managed businesses and, through his formidable business acumen, promoted growth, revenue, and profit for most, if not all, companies he led. But by creating Satori World Medical, Lash found that he did not just build a company; he gave out hope.

Lash knew that all Americans deserve high-quality healthcare and patient services, but he is also aware that the cost of health care in the United States is constantly growing, keeping it out of reach of most Americans. Thus, with the aim of giving ordinary Americans high-quality healthcare services, he turned his sights overseas and found out that healthcare procedures done there were on par with the United States, if not better.

Image credit:

They were also a lot cheaper.

With this in mind, Steven Lash built Satori World Medical, a global healthcare network and medical travel services–oriented company specifically designed to deliver high-quality healthcare services, share the tremendous cost savings with plan sponsors and their employees, and coordinate all medical and travel services for individuals who need care. In just over five years in the business, Satori World Medical has already helped numerous clients travel to various countries to undergo procedures that would otherwise prove to be too expensive had they been performed in the United States.

Health care up close: Medical travel beyond close calls

Satori World Medical on Health care up close: Medical travel beyond close calls--image credit:
Image credit:

Many years ago, an outsourced health care would have made a lot of American economists cringe. In the same vein, even the mere thought of the prospect would have made healthcare professionals cry in protest. Many proud and confident individuals must have laughed it off and thought it wouldn’t fly at all. Yet, on the heels of humongous healthcare spending and unaffordable medical care that has been gripping the nation and making it grope in the dark for decades now, medical travel seems to be as bright as the sun.

Satori World Medical--medical travel--image credit:
Image credit:

Medical travel today is on the clouds, and to say that the sky is the limit will be an inglorious understatement. With a larger wingspan of benefits that could put to shame even the couple of trillion of dollars funneled each year into national healthcare purses, this billion-dollar industry is reaping more than a repaired tummy tuck and buttocks. The innovative face lift is institutional and phenomenal. Medical travel is a trend in progress. It will be understandable if some people or sectors perceive some risks. However, the benefits far outweigh any of those.

Satori World Medical -- Medical travel today is on the clouds--image credit:
Image credit:

Satori World Medical founder Steven Lash, who prefers the term “medical travel” over “medical tourism,” captured in words the “seriousness and the quality” of it all: "Because you're not climbing Machu Picchu when you're going through one of our procedures." Lash might have meant it for what it is, but the mountain of healthcare issues surely also come close.

Against frayed health care: The unbridled benefits of medical travel

Satori World Medical--benefits of medical travel   --image credit:
Image credit:

Over the past years, over half a million patients jetting off to faraway lands every year have been easily turning many heads. Head count increases as more people head off outside the border with a single aim: cut cost on medical care.

Medical travel has presented a new insightful look on the alternative and has effectively proven a cost-effective option to an unaffordable healthcare. The Western populace, long held hostage by the exorbitant medical costs, is now seen appreciative of the benefits of medical tourism. The trend, now fully accelerated, is indeed on a blitz.

Satori World Medical--medical travel--image credit:
Image credit:

Steven Lash, CEO of the pioneering healthcare travel brand Satori Medical World, knows that with the world taking a new leaf on medical travel, more people will finally fully understand the larger benefits of medical travel. The good results and wonderful medical travel experiences of people who grabbed the opportunity simply dismantle fear and uncertainty. "We have been getting quite a bit of traction and it's easy to see why,” says Lash.

The healthcare sector is currently in a box. While patients try hard enough to wiggle out, there seems to be too little space to crawl on. Medical travel may be a long aisle of a solution, but it is way too good a leg room that the world can’t afford to ignore.

There’s one undisputable fact today: Medical travel is a breather. It’s like people pushing their head off and they just head out.

Treat your heart well: Satori World Medical on cardiovascular disease prevention

Satori World Medical on cardiovascular disease prevention--image credit:
Image credit:

Healthcare authorities, like Satori World Medical, the world’s first global healthcare network and service company designed to deliver high quality healthcare service, know that there’s compelling evidence that indicate that heart disease and stroke are the world’s leading cause of death. Satori explains that every year, over 17 million people die from cardiovascular diseases, composing 30 percent of all global deaths. But the good news is that these fatal conditions are preventable and there are measures that can be taken to maintain a good cardiovascular health. Below are some key reminders on how to be a part of the “healthy hearts club:”

• Early and regular screening is vital so that more diseases can be prevented. Experts say that heart diseases don’t only affect old people, but young ones, too.

Satori World Medical’ s clients include self-funded employers, health plans, unions, trusts, municipalities, third party administrators, benefit brokers, and consultants.

• Cigarettes contain chemicals that damage the heart and blood vessels, causing the narrowing of the arteries. As a result, heart attack may take place.

• Exercising at least 30 minutes a day can give people a great payoff. Physical activity helps control weight and reduces chances of developing conditions that may put the heart at risk.

• Controlling diabetes, high blood pressure, and body weight are significant aspects that contribute to the overall health of the heart.

• Managing stress is a serious matter that everyone should consider to prevent heart failure.

A show of manners: Satori World Medical's Director of Travel and Patient Services shares etiquette tips for visitors of India

Satori World Medical on etiquette tips for visitors of India--image credit:
Image credit:

“It is important to know the etiquette of any country you are traveling to as to not offend the native people, but to respect their traditions,” Satori World Medical Director of Travel and Patient Services Kevin Poling explains in his blog entitled Etiquette Tips while in Mumbai, India.

Poling shares that the subject on Mumbai etiquette, protocol, and manners is somewhat complicated considering the extent of the system of customs and traditions believed by different people within the area. However, there are a few reminders that travelers can make good use of when traveling to Mumbai.

When greeting

The usual practice is to say “Namaste” while carrying out a small bow with palms together. A simple handshake while saying the person’s last name and the usual Mr., Ms., or Mrs. is also an acceptable greeting.

Visiting mosques

The Satori World Medical director of travel also advises that when tourists wish to visit mosques, temples, and monuments, they have to follow what’s customary in Mumbai, especially removing the shoes before entering the door.

Satori World Medical--visiting mosque in India--image credit:

Communicating with the locals 

When discussing stuff with the locals, foreigners should not raise sensitive topics, including the cast system, religion, and even poverty.


Sharing food off one’s plate is considered a bad manner. The left hand should not be used when eating since this is believed to be the “dirty hand.”

Satori World Medical: A story of how the global healthcare network cares for its patients

“It has been a little over one year since my surgery in India and I feel fantastic,” said Edward Rucinski, a Satori World Medical patient.

Edward Rucinski is a resident of Ohio and an employee at Orscheln Industries. In January 2011, he travelled to Apollo Hospital in Chennai, India for a Birmingham hip resurfacing procedure performed by Dr. Vijay Bose, an internationally renowned orthopedic surgeon who specializes in hip resurfacing surgery. Satori organized and coordinated Rucinski’s care, an additional benefit offered by his employer.

After his successful operation, Rucinski was back to enjoying an active lifestyle of engaging in biking and backpacking. “I am extremely pleased with the outcome and the entire Satori experience. I could not have asked for better follow-up care from Satori World Medical,” Rucinski added.

The travel care coordinators at Satori were in constant communication with Rucinski before, during, and even months after his surgery.

Steven Lash on Time Magazine's 'Outsourcing your heart'

Image credit:

All business magnates have had their own ‘Eureka’ moments, and Steven Lash knows this all too well. Although Satori World Medical has burgeoned to become the premier healthcare company that it is today, it has achieved the success it has today due to Mr. Lash’s ‘Eureka’ moment: reading a magazine article that gave him the idea to build and lead a global healthcare services hub.

The article, a piece titled “Outsourcing Your Heart” written by Unmesh Kher and published by TIME Magazine on May 21, 2006, was a stirring manifesto against the crumbling and increasingly extortionate American healthcare system. It has foreseen the emergence of the medical travel industry, citing then isolated cases of US corporations that seek medical outsourcing due to being swamped by the rising healthcare costs.

Image credit:

After a critical perusal of the article, one can easily understand Steven Lash’s inspiration for founding Satori World Medical. The article clearly delineates the advantages that medical travel can bring forth, even hinting on what would become some of Satori World Medical’s primary features.

As the need for healthcare alternatives become more pronounced amidst the global downturn and the increasingly decadent US healthcare system, Mr. Lash continues to lead Satori World towards providing access to high-quality global medical care, carrying on from the beacon that was cast by a rousing and visionary article—further looking forward to serve more people in the years to come.

The makings of Steven Lash, medical travel mogul

Steven Lash’ name is slowly becoming a byword in the healthcare industry. With numerous accomplishments under his belt, his success has become an irrefutable fact. His story, however, is just like that of other successful people—a steady rising through the ranks by the melding of three factors: Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude.

Steven lash image credit :
Image credit:


While a college degree is not requisite, education is nevertheless a priceless asset that serves as a springboard for a person’s career. In Mr. Lash’s case, it certainly helped that he was educated in some of the best management schools in the US. He took up Bachelor of Science with a degree in management from the Binghamton University School of Management. After finishing college in 1975, Steven Lash enrolled for an MBA at the University of San Diego and worked his studies up to their completion in 1982.

Steven Lash on Satori World medical | image credit :
Image credit:


A successful person, apart from acquiring a significant amount of relevant knowledge, should leverage on excellent work performance before making it to the frontiers. After obtaining his MBA, Mr. Lash worked for Sharp Healthcare—San Diego’s largest and leading vertically integrated healthcare delivery system—as executive vice president until 1999. After this stint, he went to Dermtech International where he served as president and CEO. After his tenure with Dermtech, he moved to Woodward Laboratories where he served as president from 2002-2006.


Steven Lash, amidst his experience, wouldn’t have been able to reach his current status as a leader in the global healthcare industry if not for his approach. Mr. Lash’s greatest asset is his drive for consistent excellent performance. This is manifested in his rigorous quality assurance policy in running Satori World Medical. On top of the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation of affiliated hospitals under the Satori Global Network™, he runs a robust quality program through the office of the in-house Chief Medical Officer, with the latter conducting frequent on-site check-ups to ensure that clients receive only the best healthcare available abroad—at par or even better than medical care provided in the US.

Steven Lash Satori World Medical: Demystifying medical travel

Satori World Medical--medical travel--image credit:
Satori World Medical image credit:

According to Steven Lash, Satori World Medical president and CEO, the rising healthcare costs in the US, together with the availability of high-quality medical care outside the US at a fraction of the cost, are just some of the key factors contributing to the people’s increasing interest in medical tourism.

But if it is really that good, then why doesn’t every employer offer a medical travel program in the benefit plan? The answer is that the general lack of understanding regarding patient safety and medical quality is preventing the widespread adoption of medical travel.

Satori World Medical as new solution to costly healthcare services--image credit:
Satori World Medical image credit:

As with all matters of healthcare, having the correct information is the key. According to Steven Lash, Satori World Medical president and CEO, the following problems can be addressed by gathering adequate and accurate information:

• Will the procedures be safe? Is the quality on par with hospitals in the United States? Individuals should only participate in a program that solely contracts with JCI-accredited hospitals and conducts regular on-site visits to ensure high-quality medical care.
• Will there be stress? Individuals can avoid stress by choosing a medical travel company that does all the planning and legwork.
• Is bringing a companion possible? Individuals should always inquire about whether the medical travel program includes the cost of a travel companion.

Satori World Medical: Is quality healthcare really this affordable?

Satori World Medical--medical travel--image credit:
Satori World Medical image credit:

The crippling costs of healthcare in the US are making more individuals want their procedures done through Satori World Medical’s global network outside the United States, often with the blessing of their employers, because medical travel not only is affordable but also helps keep their healthcare costs low. Medical travel also gives patients more choices regarding procedures they want done. In addition, recuperating at an exotic place such as a beach in Thailand beats a sterile hospital room all the time.

Even though medical tourism is more cost effective, unconventional and often times considered exciting, there is still one thing plaguing people’s minds: Are the hospitals performing these economical surgeries comparable to their US counterparts?

Satori World Medical--Joint Commission International--image credit:
Satori World Medical image credit:

Several accreditation organizations have been created to develop standards. One of these is the Joint Commission International (JCI), the international division of the Joint Commission that accredits American Hospitals.

Satori World Medical’s global network of acute-care hospitals are all JCI accredited.

Accreditation is key. The Joint Commission accredits notable hospitals in the United States like Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic. A hospital accredited by the Joint Commission and its international division (JCI) provides the highest-quality care.

Aside from accreditation and in response to the growth of medical travel, guidelines were developed by the American Medical Association. Satori World Medical not only follows but also exceeds these guidelines. For more information, please visit this website.

Satori World Medical: The right to high-quality health care is the right to life

Satori World Medical -- The right to high-quality health care is the right to life -- image credit :
 Satori World Medical Image credit:

Satori World Medical believes that high-quality health care is life. Every person has an essential right to live. Nobody deserves to be turned away at hospitals just because they could not afford medical treatment. But with health care getting more expensive year after year, people find themselves unable to pay for proper medical care.

Medical tourism, or the act of undergoing medical procedures overseas, has been gaining momentum in recent years. Due to the high cost of health care in the United States and its affordability outside the country, many people are opting to get their medical procedures done in countries like Canada, Mexico, and Thailand, where medical care services are world-class but are 40-80 percent cheaper.

Satori World Medical --medical tourism--Image credit:

Satori World Medical, the world’s first global healthcare network, makes medical tourism easy, affordable, and hassle-free. The company not only provides world-class health care services and shares cost savings with sponsors, but also coordinates all medical and travel services for individuals who need medical care. All it takes is one phone call.

The San Diego, CA-based medical and travel services provider is dedicated to helping patients have a chance to receive the health care they need and deserve—a fighting chance for their right to live and be healthy again.

Satori World Medical advances the merits of medical travel

In the past decades, medical travel companies like Satori World Medical took charge of leading and handling the current popular innovative solution to costly medical care—health tourism. With the recession and rising cost of medical care draining both the moral and pockets of average American wage earners, the double whammy hit hard and deep into people’s purses.

Satori World Medical, Image Credit: -- URL:
Satori World Medical Image Credit:

Health travel is a relatively new phenomenon. While public acceptance of its capacity to handle the escalating need for cheaper medical health care services has yet to expand, a good portion of the public starts to recognize its merit. There are many reasons to be optimistic. Steven Lash, the president and CEO of Satori World Medical, believes that “there is a kind of acceptance now that there is high quality care available internationally.”

Now poised at the frontline of innovative global health tourism industry, Satori truly has enough reason to drumbeat the benefits of medical travel. Medical travel is a fast-growing industry, and it will continue to keep up with the demand over the next few years and decades with or without recession.

“Satori has created a business model that is poised for tremendous growth and profitability over the next several years despite today’s challenging economic climate,” adds Lash.
