Medical Travel Services: Building Patient Trust in a COVID-19 World

Introduction to GHA’s COVID-19 Guidelines for Medical Travel Programs

August 18th at 9:00 am EDT (GMT -4)

As hospitals and clinics around the world begin to reopen their medical travel programs or increase operations, they must earn patients’ trust if they expect them to travel again. During or post COVID-19, patients have one overarching question: what are you doing to keep me safe during travel and treatment?

Join us on a Free webinar as we look at each touch point on the medical travel care continuum and review recommended protocols to reduce COVID-19 risks based on GHA’s recently issued COVID-19 Guidelines for Medical Travel Programs. At a dynamic time, with surges and new findings still evolving, the guidelines are designed to assist medical travel programs to keep current with new developments as they operate within a ‘new normal’, with a philosophy of risk mitigation along the entire medical travel care continuum, including pre-arrival, travel, accommodations, admission and treatment, discharge and follow up home.

These include:

  • Special messaging for patients regarding protocols or special arrangements due to COVID-19
  • Protocols to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 throughout travel, including airplane, ground transportation as appropriate, as well as hotel best practices
  • Protocols and best practices during admission and treatment
  • Important factors to consider at discharge, during follow-up and after the patient returns home

We will also look at GHA’s Certification of Conformance with the Guidelines and discuss how it can help you increase patient trust in your medical travel program.
