“The current pandemic crisis has resulted in a dire need for medicare facilities especially for those needing critical care. We have been inundated with requests from families of patients looking to transport their loved ones to other cities offering the relevant medicare facilities. At BLADE India we look to alleviate the hassles and inconvenience faced by distressed families desperately trying to locate a craft for the medical evacuation and comply with all the formalities. To ensure a holistic experience, we have partnered with India’s leading speciality healthcare ecosystem, MyHealthcare. The partnership gives us the ability to serve leading hospitals and healthcare providers and bring to our patients the most experienced team for clinical care.” says Mr. Amit Dutta, Managing Director, BLADE India.
For a seamless, medical evacuation and bed to bed transfer, BLADE has partnered with ‘MyHealthcare’, a speciality healthcare ecosystem, to manage all the medical requirements for patients on ground and with BLADE being the air carrier service network. This enables immediate medical assistance and makes for a hassle-free experience for families going through difficult times.
Shyatto Raha, Founder & CEO, MyHealthcare said, “Super speciality and multi-speciality services are limited to the top metros of India today. Critical patients in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities need to travel to metros to receive the specialised care, which is time consuming. Medevacs will play a critical role in saving lives, ensuring they are in the best medical hands as quickly as possible. COVID 19 has thrown up another challenge, whereby patients are unable to travel easily from one location to another. Our partnership with BLADE India will help enhance the medevac services for our patients, allowing us access to a wider network of air ambulances and helicopters. Through the partnership, we will be able to manage a complete bed to bed transfer of our patients, in the shortest possible time. At MyHealthcare, we remain committed to ensure we bring to our patients the best and most effective healthcare solutions, through our ecosystem of care.”
