HEMS establishment guide offered by MedEvac Foundation


The MedEvac Foundation International in the US has announced the completion of the Developing HEMS Capacity study. The resulting product of this study, entitled Establishing Air Medical Programs for the Next Generation, offers a framework for developed or developing countries to use as a guide when establishing air medical systems for their most critically ill and injured patients. The document can be used to educate national leaders, legislators, regulators, and business leaders on the unique and life-saving medical services provided by HEMS operators and the benefits of these HEMS programs to their nations, businesses, hospitals, and the general population.

“The MedEvac Foundation International, in partnership with Bell Helicopter, is honoured to have taken part in this extensive landmark study designed to take the guesswork out of HEMS start up, and also provide programs with a template to verify their current programs,” said MedEvac Foundation Board Chairman, Johnny Delgado. “While it contemplates the cultural, regulatory and country differences, it establishes the basic safety, administrative and operational logistics for a well-integrated air ambulance service."
