Healthcare Guidance. Anywhere, anytime.
Our topside assistance services extend world-class medical advice and resources to any location in the world at any time. The Remote Medical International Global Coordination Center is accessible by phone, email, secure video chat software, or telemedicine device. On average, it takes only seven seconds to speak to a medical coordination specialist who oversees all aspects of case management and provides connection to all of our topside assistance resources.
Our 24/7 Topside Assistance services include:
Includes consultations with actively practicing, board-certified emergency and specialist physicians. We partner with the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates, who thoroughly understand the complexities of medical care in remote settings, and understand the impact their decisions have on health and safety reporting.
Dedicated Case Coordinator
A Remote Medical International Medical Coordination Specialist coordinates, tracks, and documents every aspect of each case in our electronic medical record system, from start through resolution.

If the need for an evacuation arises, Remote Medical International Topside Assistance coordinates every step through our network of ground and air transportation providers and medical facilities.

Imminent Life Threat Protocols
Clients are never greeted by an automated recording. All calls connect directly to Remote Medical International Medical Coordination Specialists who are themselves trained medical providers. Utilizing protocols authorized by our Medical Director, they can address primary life threats such as choking, anaphylaxis, and severe bleeding in the critical moments before a physician comes to the line.
RMI’s 24/7 Topside Assistance vs. Global Assistance
We are often asked what the difference is between RMI’s 24/7 Topside Assistance compared to a global medical and security assistance policy, such as those offered by RMI’s partner, Healix International. The primary difference is that our service is specifically designed to direct the onsite medical treatment of personnel working on a project or at a specific site. Global assistance policies, on the other hand, are part of a comprehensive and compliance-driven travel risk management program. These programs are designed to provide a wide variety of medical, security and travel tracking resources to organizations that have travelers, expats, and accompanying family members at locations worldwide.
