EMedical Jamaica Global Limited (EMED), the Jamaican air ambulance evacuation service, has launched a website that will allow individuals across the globe to gain access to medical services in Jamaica and to communicate directly with local Jamaican doctors online.
"This dynamic mobile health solution lets its members connect to the health information and local care they need, when they need it, by providing first-aid information, searchable health topics, a symptom navigator, a GPS-enabled local health-care search that includes doctors, hospitals, urgent care, retail clinics and pharmacies, and even information about exclusive EMED member discounts", said President/CEO of EMEDICAL Global Jamaica, Duane Boise in an interview the Jamaica Observer.
Boise went on to explain that it is hoped that the new website will boost Jamaica’s fledgling health tourism sector. Jamaican healthcare, he said, is among the best in the world and through the new site individuals may be encouraged to visit Jamaica to seek healthcare.
As the only Jamaican medical/social website it is also expected that the website will benefit Jamaican clients.
Medical director and vice-president of EMedical Global Jamaica, Dr Neville Graham, said, "Getting immediate access to the most frequently needed first-aid information categorised into four areas — emergency ground ambulance, emergency air ambulance evacuation, symptom diagnosis and minor injuries and poisoning — even without a wireless connection, is great for Jamaicans."
EMED currently serves the Caribbean through an air ambulance/health-care benefits business.
