Angelicoussis Shipping pilots digital medical care solution for crews – Digital Ship

The Greek shipping company Angelicoussis Shipping Group has implemented a 3-month pilot project of onboard crew medical care solution by MedAssist.Online.

Dutch company MedAssist.Online provides approved medical solutions by “bringing the doctor on board” when they need it most. MedAssist.Online provides medical care solutions that are affordable, reliable and capable of operating at sea with low to zero bandwidth, increasing a company’s compliance with international standards.

The program consists of three user-friendly applications that serve different purposes and will help crew members in the event of an emergency on the ship.

One of the applications, MedAssist Live App, takes on the challenge of providing medical help when there is no expert on site.

The Live app allows a remote professional to attend virtually. Crew members aboard the ship receive real-time visual instructions and guidance, using augmented reality. This makes it possible to provide medical assistance anywhere and anytime.

The Skills app provides instructions for performing basic medical procedures. The Heart App solution, which also includes Bluetooth sensor hardware, will generate a hospital-grade 12-lead ECG. With a simple click, the result (the ECG) can be sent in PDF format to the professionals.

The only tool needed is a tablet, which is provided by MedAssist.online.

MedAssist.online is represented in Greece by Oriani Hellas.
