Telemedicine Solution Out At Sea

Each year, close to 60,000 deep sea merchant marine vessels operate worldwide, carrying between 1.2 to 1.5 million seafarers ( Fairplay and Lloyd’s Register estimate). According to the International Maritime Health journal, 1 in 5 ships are forced to divert course for medical reasons, at an average cost of $180,000 per diversion and a total cost of $760m / per year tothe industry.

Further research has found that at least 20% ($168m ) of the cases aren’t critical to warrant a diversion or helicopter evacuations and could easily be avoided by using modern on-board telemedical equipment .

Since January 2012, the shipping community and flag states are required to “ provide seafarers with medical care as nearly as possible equivalent to the care they would receive ashore.” and “ ensure by a prearranged system that medical advice by radio or satellite communication to ships at sea is available at any hour of the day or night ”. As per International Labour Organisation’s Maritime Labour Convention (ILO/MLC) and International Maritime Organisation Standards for Training , Certification and Watchkeeping, Manila 2010 (IMO/STCW) amendments coming into force.
