We provide, medical consulting services including medical case management, second opinions and expert witness.

Medical Consulting

When a patient is admitted to a hospital in another country it can be a worrying and anxious time for relatives, friends or employers, as well as for the patient. It can be difficult to understand the medical issues, whether treatment is effective, and when it may be possible for them to return home.

Medical case management is a process where remote specialist clinicians make contact with the clinicians at the hospital to gain a clearer understanding of the medical problems and treatment and to discuss the options for flying home. At Med ResQ we have significant experience in managing such cases, whether in remote and challenging locations or where language may be an issue to large hospitals in capital cities. Our team of doctors and nurses will also call the patient and perform telephone assessments as well as giving reassurance, advice and information.

We provide detailed medical summaries as well general case updates in plain English. Once we have determined the time frame and manner in which the patient can be flown home we will liaise with all parties which may include a receiving hospital in the home country. If the patient can fly without assistance then Med ResQ is able to assist with all planning aspects including airline clearances and flights, and if a medically escorted repatriation or an air ambulance is required then Med ResQ will be able to advise and assist.
