Medical tourism is an expanding phenomenon. Scientific studies address the changes and challenges of the present and future
trend. However, no research considers the study of bibliometric variables and area of business, management and accounting.
This bibliometric analysis discovered the following elements: (1) The main articles are based on guest services, management,
leadership principles applied, hotel services associated with healthcare, marketing variables and elements that guide the
choice in medical tourism; (2) The main authors do not deal with tourism but are involved in various ways in the national
health system of the countries of origin or in WHO; (3)cost-efficiency and analytical accounting linked to medical tourism
structures and destination choices are not yet developed topics.
