Why Choose Maritime Medical Access?
Global access to their Board Certified emergency medicine physicians has enabled companies and individuals to reduce unnecessary medical expenses and the risk of liability. Their relationship with The George Washington University Medical Center ensures current, state-of-the-art, medical practices and case management for their ill or injured clients.
“There is general agreement among emergency clinicians that seeing the patient greatly improves correct diagnosis and treatment for illnesses or injuries,” said James Betz, program manager, Maritime Medical Access.
“The combination of real-time diagnostic sensor readings with a visual inspection of the patient can reduce misdiagnosis or over-triaging a problem, increasing the likelihood that the vessel will stay on course and not have to divert for a medical emergency. With follow-up teleconferences, the remote physician can determine when the crew member can safely resume work.”
