Two partners joined forces to provide medical services to seafarers onboard commercial ships and cruise liners, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Specifically, Allianz Care, the health brand of insurance conglomerate Allianz Partners, has partnered with maritime health technology provider Tritan Software.
The collaboration provides shipping companies a new option to access care, via the SeaCare Health Platform, Tritan’s software solution for medical management. The tools include telemedicine, communicable disease management, including COVID-19, compliance reporting, case tracking, automated referrals, medical evacuations and repatriations.
Andrew Carricarte, president and CEO of Tritan Software commented that
Working together we combine our knowledge and innovation in health technology with Allianz Care’s global medical network and extensive healthcare expertise. We share a passion for enhancing the safety and wellbeing of our customers.
Overall, the COVID-19 crisis has been a severe challenge for the shipping industry, with disruptions in logistic chains and seafarers having to deal with port restrictions and new barriers arising.
