At Healix we are unique in our ability to offer a truly integrated risk management and assistance operation with our medical and security teams working right alongside each other. This ensures maximum efficiency during incidents involving medical and security issues, as clearly illustrated by the recent case of a crew member taken seriously ill on-board a cargo ship while sailing through the Gulf of Aden.
With limited medical resources on-board and the patient’s condition worsening, we stood up a joint medical and security Incident Management Team. They arranged medical treatment at a suitably equipped medical facility in Aden and organised all necessary ground support to ensure the patient’s safety in an exceptionally complex operating environment with EXTREME security risks.
Read about the numerous challenges presented and how we overcame them in our case study, ‘Aden: Anatomy of a joint medical and security assistance case’.
