AIR DOCTOR HELPS TRAVELERS LOCATE LOCAL PHYSICIANS GLOBALLY
Industry: Technology       

Assisting travelers around the globe, Air Doctor offers a convenient alternative to overwhelming Emergency Room visits while abroad.

(TRAVPR.COM) ISRAEL - November 1st, 2019 - Offering relief to individuals, families, and business travelers while abroad, Air Doctor is providing a revolutionary complementary service to traditional traveler health insurance. Saving vacationers and foreign business travelers, visitors who fall ill can now use an app to schedule doctor appointments while abroad and receive service from a private, pre-screened practitioner, in their native language.

Travelers who are in need of medical attention while abroad are faced with a myriad of stresses that go beyond their ailment. For those who have traveler health insurance, they request approval and find a local hospital. For those who overlooked this crucial insurance, they must make their way to a hospital and potentially provide a large sum of money, before being seen.

Regardless of how they come to the Emergency Room, they must navigate a foreign healthcare system in a potentially unfamiliar language that deters individuals from seeking the medical attention they need. These are commonly small illnesses that would be better addressed through private practitioners.

Traditional traveler medical insurance is fraught with so many stumbling blocks that travelers weigh forgoing medical care completely. Beyond being an inconvenience, ignoring an illness may allow for it to progress, forcing trips to be cut short, allowing small ailments to become a serious illness.

Partnering with local physicians, Air Doctor is changing what travelers expect from care abroad, even allowing travelers to sign up at any time, even if they set out on their trip without insurance. This gives travelers access to regional physicians around the globe. “By opening our convenient smartphone application, anyone can have instant access to a list of local physicians who have been screened and are approved to serve traveler needs. Saving travelers from unnecessary stress, they can use the application to set an appointment for a visit in a private clinic or even their hotel room,” said Jenny Cohen Derfler, CEO of Air Doctor. “Our unwavering commitment to helping customers has allowed us to offer this service to all travelers. Regardless of the patient’s location, we’ll find a physician.”

With a focus on convenience, the application and claims process is completely virtual. Receiving rapid approval via the application, doctors are paid directly by Air Doctor, meaning policyholders never need to leave cash, find an ATM, or hand over a credit card to the doctor they see.

Adding to their customer-focused services, Air Doctor will be launching a telemedicine service in the coming months. This will allow customers to have initial consultations with a doctor who is familiar with their local language, culture, and medical systems.
