Medical app launches

Nov 6, 2014 by Guest Writer

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

Full MedAire members 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 information is cached on a user’s iPad for access without wi-fi.
