With the vast amounts of data that is being generated today, come new possibilities of understanding patient mobility. In this study, of urban mobility in ten mega cities worldwide, we try to understand the relationship between patients' environment and behaviour with regards to venues that provide some kind of medical care. We analyze longitudinal mobility data set from ten of the world's megacities and investigate urban dynamics and travel patterns in terms of interaction with medical centers. Our goal is to investigate universal patterns and gain an understanding of where people are coming from when they visit such venues and where they go afterwards as well how travel patterns progress throughout the day.
