Family – GMAP

Global Medical Assistance Program

Vigilint?s board-certified emergency physicians create customized solutions to proactively address the unique travel medical needs of your family and staff. Our distinctive program offers unparalleled access to medical experts before, during and after your trip.

“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.”

With the sheer frequency of our client?s global travel, it is not uncommon for medical issues to develop when a family member?s medical doctor is not immediately available. Alternatively, their primary physician is often not prepared to make recommendations on where to receive emergency medical care in a foreign country.

Our Global Medical Assistance Program, GMAP™, is the umbrella solution for these types of issues. We have a small cadre of highly trained emergency physicians available 24/7 to assist the client through any acute medical concern ? no issues are too small or too big. We welcome our clients to call, text, Skype or email our physicians directly. We are a specialized firm that caters to a select group of individuals requiring immediate, skilled and discrete service, every time and right away.
