Welcome to the International Healthcare Technologies webpage.
Healthcare is a steadily growing industry with an approximate value of $117.4 billion exported from the U.S. in 2011, which has risen almost 26% since 2007. With the recent rapid growth of emerging markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China there exists a tremendous opportunity for U.S. companies to successfully expand into the international arena.
The Healthcare Team of the U.S. Commercial Service is dedicated to enhancing the global competitiveness of the U.S. health industry, expanding its market access, and increasing exports. It accomplishes this through a variety of resources and services for U.S. companies such as Webinars, Gold Key and Platinum Key Services. The team, comprised of trade specialists from throughout the U.S. and from U.S. Embassies around the world, provides:
In-Depth Market Data and Statistics
Creating Market Entry Strategies
Identifying and Evaluating potential partners

In addition to our many services, the Healthcare Team specializes in using both Domestic and International Trade Shows as turnkey events to help foster new business relationships and expand the international presence of U.S. firms by attracting country experts and international buyers.

In today's world, it is imperative for small businesses to have a website strategy to effectively market their products and services overseas. According to Forrester Research, 50% of Internet traffic in the United States originates overseas. If you look at your website traffic statistics, your website may be drafting even higher numbers. If not, why not? Can you afford to ignore 50% or more of your “walk-in” traffic? This is a NON-TECHNICAL seminar for management and staff to learn about the low-cost to no-cost modifications to internationalize your website. STEP will cover registration fees for all small and medium-sized firms as defined by SBA guidelines. Participants should see MDA and MS USEAC staff at the event to learn how to qualify.
