MedAire launched an app to deliver medical and travel safety information to yacht crew and their destinations.
Users have access to hundreds of yacht destination information including medical and travel risk ratings, time, weather, sunrise/ sunset, holidays and events.

“Guests aboard these vessels expect the crew to monitor and care for every detail of their trip, including their onshore excursions, so they can enjoy their holidays,” said Steven Bates, general manager of luxury yachts for MedAire. “We designed the app to help captains stay abreast of the latest advice and information about health and safety risks that could affect their itinerary, so they can prepare their crew and guests as appropriate.”

Full MedAire member receive port risk assessments, a briefing document with security, medical guides and travel advice for onshore destinations. In the event of a disease outbreak or a natural disaster, the app provides information to mitigate risk to crew and guests. The global MedAire network is available for hospital arrangements or evacuation to appropriate medical care.

The app allows members to send photos and medical requests to the MedAire medical team and includes medical references to supplement the MCA training. The app also includes weather, currency conversion and lodging and dining options.

The information is cached on a user’s iPad for access without Wi-Fi.
MedAire will demonstrate Sea to Shore at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show at MedAire Booth 735. For more information, and to download, visit www.medaire.com/seatoshore.
