How Telemedicine Works
We believe in keeping things simple. We always start our telemedicine consultations with a phone call. Your designated first aiders (captain, first mate, etc.) call our 24/7 number, enter their Client ID number and are connected with the Doctor immediately.
We encourage our clients to “call early, call often”. If a medical issue is of concern to your medical provider, “Medic”, we want him/her to call us, so that we can address it early. This reduces stress on the Medic and allows them to focus on their jobs.
Here are some examples of medical issues that medical personnel call us for:
– Breathing problems
– Chest pain
– Sprains and strains
– Cuts & lacerations
– Belly or stomach pain
– General aches and pain
The PRAXES app includes case management functionality to keep track of your vessel and entire crew. You gain access to entire crew directory with unique member numbers to expedite the response time in emergency situations.
