OneHealth by VIKAND brings remote healthcare to GMSA bulkers

OneHealth by VIKAND brings remote healthcare to GMSA bulkers

(Posted on 02/05/24)

VIKAND, the global leader in maritime healthcare, has announced its new partnership with Gourdomichalis Maritime SA (GMSA), the Athens-based operator of a modern fleet of dry bulk carriers. The company is currently in the process of enhancing the welfare of its seafarers by implementing tools from Navarino offered through the OneHealth by VIKAND platform.

Our telehealth plan will soon be implemented across four GMSA vessels – Kavo Aetos, Kavo Yeraki, Kavo Alkyon and Kavo Perdika. The service package includes the VIKAND Connect app, emergency care, medivac support and emergency mental health services, plus 24/7 remote access to medical and mental health professionals anywhere in the world. VIKAND Connect offers easy-to-use video, audio and text communications with healthcare teams, plus in-app appointment scheduling.

“Crew wellbeing is a top priority,” says Vasilis Xerotagaros, HSEQ Coordinator for Gourdomichalis Maritime. “With technology and services from VIKAND and Navarino, we can sail with new confidence, secure in the knowledge that a dedicated team is there to assist our crew members wherever they are.”

In a maritime healthcare field dominated by reactive solutions, OneHealth by VIKAND takes a uniquely proactive approach to crew welfare, with tools to mitigate emergency medical needs, preventive health and wellness strategies, and support structures in place for nearly any type of human health crisis at sea.

“Seafarers worldwide face difficult working conditions on a daily basis,” says Ronald Spithout, Managing Director of OneHealth by VIKAND. “We created our new platform to positively impact every dimension of their lives, from mental health, medical care, social wellbeing and more. Gourdomichalis crews will now benefit from an extra layer of care and protection.”

Katerina Liaki, an Account Manager for Navarino, added: “We are very proud of our partnership with VIKAND. Their solutions enhance the lives of seafarers, who are often far from comprehensive medical services. It makes a big impact on their working lives, and I look forward to supporting Gourdomichalis and the welfare of their crews.”
