“Global travelers understand how quickly medical issues can develop when abroad and how frightening these experiences can become. Even minor medical issues can become a true ordeal in a foreign country. Major issues have the real potential to become life-changing events. The ability to immediately contact an expert emergency-travel medicine physician with Vigilint, that you know personally, and be equipped with all the necessary medications to treat most ailments is tremendous. Their near-instantaneous ability to coordinate foreign hospitalization and evacuation is beyond priceless.”

Global travelers appreciate that a trip away from home presents some degree of medical risk. In general, 1 in 3 travelers will experience a medical problem when abroad, 1 in 20 will need to seek medical care, and 1 in 1000 will require hospitalization or evacuation.

Vigilint?s International Health Protection™, equips you with a system of care that reduces the impact of these occurrences and seamlessly provides for your personal and business continuity needs.
