Remote Medical International Launches RMI CONNECT(TM)
SEATTLE, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — On June 17, Remote Medical International launched RMI CONNECT, a global telemedicine service that provides integrated medical support. RMI’s unveiling included the grand opening of its Global Coordination Center (GCC), a telemedicine response center located at the company’s headquarters in Seattle, Washington, USA.
Whether surveying ocean floors across the globe or mountaineering the world’s highest peaks, RMI CONNECT clients receive unlimited access to comprehensive medical advice and logistical support worldwide, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. One current client, ION Geophysical, a seismic solutions company, relies on RMI CONNECT to ensure employee safety while conducting Arctic exploration.
“ION employees work in some of the world’s harshest and most remote environments,” said Tim Granlie, ION HSE Manager. “We count on RMI to be there with us every step of the way, to help us prevent incidents from occurring, and if something were to occur, to help us minimize the problem and remedy the situation as quickly as possible.”
The GCC is staffed around the clock by Medical Coordination Specialists with extensive real-world remote medical experience. The RMI CONNECT team provides access to physicians for emergency consultation and advice, walks clients through step-by-step treatment, and coordinates evacuation when necessary.
“By accurately assessing and managing a situation, we help prevent costly and avoidable evacuations without compromising the patient’s health and safety,” said Chris Kenney, Operations Director at Remote Medical International. “We’re excited to offer a dynamic and responsive service that will increase the quality and efficiency of our clients’ operations worldwide.”
The RMI CONNECT team tracks all medical interactions with electronic patient care records. These records are stored in a confidential database and utilized to provide efficient, customized support. With RMI CONNECT, members also receive the added benefit of prescription authorization and non-emergency consultations.
