Real Time tracking
Tracking the patient’s flight is as simple as clicking our link and then clicking ‘Track Patient’. Following the flight in real time allows us to monitor moment to moment conditions. We can also be more time efficient and cost effective when coordinating with the ground and medical crews. We offer this tool to our patient’s support group so they may stay informed and know when to expect the patient home.
