Healix International has launched a range of medical services specifically for the airline industry to support airlines and their staff internationally.
The medical services provider is focusing on three key areas including crew health, providing airlines’ employees with a 24/7 nurse-led phone service that they can call to speak to a medical expert at any time of the day, wherever they are in the world.
If a crew member needs medical assistance, Healix will advise them of the most appropriate medical facility and accredited practitioner or arrange for a doctor to visit them at their hotel, if necessary.
For more serious cases, treatment is arranged at a suitable hospital and costs are contained through active case management, negotiated discounts and protocol pricing.
Paul Beven, director at Healix, said: “Our aim is to provide airlines with a credible alternative to their existing suppliers and at the same time reduce their costs.
“We have a wealth of expertise in aviation medicine and international medical case management and are perfectly placed to support the airlines and their staff.”
