Abstract: Added Value: aeromedical services for international patients

Globalization and changing travel patterns create new an increased demand for aeromedical services. Whilst most international patients will travel on a commercial plane or use ground transport, there is a growing demand for international patients to use aeromedical transport. The reasons may be medical, but also comfort and service. Safety, quality, promptness and economic aspects are essential.

As this is a relatively small sector, very few international hospitals and facilitators are set up for procuring aeromedical services. There are lots of “do’s” and “don’ts” to achieve the best solution for the patient.

A professional aeromedical transport will clearly add value to the service for international patients.

Eva’s wealth of experience and her excellent background on the payor’s and the supplier’s side, will provide valuable insights with regard all aspects of these highly sophisticated services.
