Puerto Rico: Telemedik
Telemedik offers virtual medical consultations through telemedicine including diagnosis, treatments, prescriptions, and medical education.
In September 2017, Hurricane Maria became the worst natural disaster to hit the tiny island. U.S. Army mobile medics used our telehealth solutions to serve over 150 patients a day, providing on-demand, synchronous critical care and specialty virtual health encounters.
Petrobas, the world’s fourth largest oil company, partnered with GlobalMed and Albert Einstein Hospital to provide healthcare on offshore oil rigs. Petrobras saw a 50% reduction in evacuations due to medical concerns with its telemedicine program. Read Case Study.
In January 2013, small coastal party town Santa Maria hosted students from six nearby colleges. The crowded Kiss nightclub erupted in flames after pyrotechnics were used indoors. The blaze killed 242 people and injured over 600 others. Unable to airlift all victims to Sao Paolo for care, the Brazilian president sent in GlobalMed technology to help the victims by connecting them to burn experts and other specialists and used our HD TotalExam camera to match skin that would be flown in for grafts.
Africa: Cape Verde, Zimbabwe and Ghana
Africa’s underserved communities are benefiting from telemedicine’s
Cape Verde is an independent island nation of 500,000 people. Healthcare and transportation is limited, delaying care for sick or injured residents. Local leaders launched GlobalMed telemedicine solutions at 10 centers across the island. Read case study.
In Zimbabwe, a massive United Nation-funded deployment has not only brought care to remote African villages but also provided urgent disaster response emergency care after Tropical Cyclone Idai left thousands dead, missing and injured. See case study.
A medical mission brought GlobalMed solutions to a Ghana village where over 300 patients were seen and treated on the first day, with over 1000 seen over the duration of the mission. See case study.
