The Green Award Foundation announced that two new incentive providers focusing on the provision of the best medical care possible in remote locations have entered the Green Award scheme: ‘MedAssist.Online’ and ‘EC-MT’ (Emergency Control – Maritime Training).
EC-MT and MedAssist.Online provide training for and support delivery of medical care in remote locations, such as onboard ships.
EC-MT also provides mandatory Medical Care and Medical First Aid training for seafarers in accordance to international standards (STCW 2010). Furthermore, EC-MT provides Medical Doctors as trainers. There are courses every week, certified by the ILT – NL045 and ISO 9001: 2008 certified.
MedAssist.Online provides digital solutions to support the provision of medical care, when there is no doctor around. Specifically, the “heart app” provides a hospital quality 12-lead ECG on a tablet, for interpretation by doctors remotely. The vital medical skills app supports medical intervention. It uses HD photo and video to instruct in detail how to prepare for and carry out medical procedures safely and successfully.
