MedeFile International has struck a deal with ACASS Canada to provide over 30 members of its administrative staff and flight crew with memberships for its mobile electronic records management system and services.
Since 1994, ACASS Canada has offered a range of customized aviation support and consultation services, including crew support and private jet charter services. ACASS pilots, flight attendants, engineers and administrative staff operate on an international scale and are often required to travel for extended periods of time.
ACASS says that the mobile medical records will assist its staff in the event of a medical emergency by reducing the risk of medical complications due to the unavailability of historical medical information. This may occur if a passenger is forced to seek treatment or require immediate attention from unfamiliar healthcare providers.
Through MedeFile, we will now have peace of mind knowing that their full medical and dental history, emergency contact information and detailed medical records will conveniently travel with them wherever they go, Andre Khury, president of ACASS Canada, said.
