2008-12-01 Air Ambulance Service

eMediHub recently completed two projects in air ambulance/medical evacuation. It involved an Indonesian late-stage cancer patient who was transported from Singapore to China and then back to Indonesia.

During the four days of intense support work on each project, we worked closely with the aircraft operations team virtually 24/7 in planning, scheduling, arranging for aircraft and financial matters, pilots and medical personnel, documentations for customs and immigration, contingency plans, and medical records.

Although the projects were intense, the team was pleased when the patient's family expressed their sincere appreciation (see testimonials) . We were also encouraged when our partner from the medical aircraft company, which has over 20 years of experience, told us that they were pleasantly surprised to see eMediHub staff at 4am at the airport with the patient and family. These encouragements have motivated us to charge ahead in the air ambulance sector.

Frankly, these were our first two projects in this area. However, our expertise in medical referral, experiences working with hundreds of patients needs in medical travel, strong relationship with major hospitals, strength in large and complex project management in IT projects are valuable assets in the successful completion of these projects. Perhaps most importantly, eMediHub's philosophy in "Patients Patients Patients" have been helpful in guiding us in these projects.

Valuable Lessons Learned:

a.Patients Patients Patients. We should always treat the well being of patients as our top priority.
b.Air-ambulance is expensive. Families need to have the right expectations, including fitness for the patient to fly, financial ability, and knowing who is the doctor at destination hospital.
c.Take care of financial arrangements upfront. Nail down the financial arrangement and payment methods ASAP in the beginning of the project.
d.Find a reputable and caring air-ambulance service company to arrange the entire trip. An experienced company will take care of the majority of the challenges, allowing the family to focus on the patient.
e.Find a suitable specialist doctor. It is crucial to arrange for appropriate specialists in destination hospital. Many air-ambulance service providers stop at sending the patient to destination hospital. Searching for a suitable specialist is probably the most challenging task in this whole exercise. eMediHub's one-stop services enable patients and families to identify appropriate specialists and help them arrange for appointments as well.
f.Develop processes and checklists and train the customer support personnel. Prepare documentations during "down" time and train the support people. Air-ambulance service deals with seriously ill patients and the margin for errors is close to zero. Good preparations completed prior to execution will greatly increase the chances of success.
