San Antonio, TX (PressExposure) November 04, 2011 -- Carenet Healthcare Services (www.callcarenet.com), a performance-driven organization for the healthcare industry, launched services for the beneficiaries of the U.S. Military and their families stationed overseas.
Carenet's team of registered nurses are providing medical assistance and physician appointment coordination to nearly 300,000 Tricare members and 38 Military Treatment Facilities (MTF's) activated in countries in Europe, Asia and Africa. After a thorough assessment, the registered nurses coordinate care by directing beneficiaries to an appropriate level of emergency service or provide self-care treatment options. The full service solution includes appointment coordination with primary care physicians.
"We have a long relationship with the Department of Defense (DoD) and a tremendous respect for the job it does. Our goal as an organization is to offer these individuals and their families the best possible experience in their healthcare journey. Seeking medical advice in a surrounding that is familiar is stressful enough, we want to make those stationed overseas feel comfortable and provide them with the answers and support they need while away from home," said John Erwin, president of Carenet Heatlhcare Services.
Military personnel and their families stationed overseas have access to care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through an advanced communications system designed to seamlessly deliver a superior experience. These servicemen and their dependents connect to the secure system designed to deliver medical advice and physician appointment coordination service across communications platforms in multiple countries while delivering an unsurpassed level of care.
"Advancements in our core technology are always priority. We have an exceptionally talented team of IT professionals consistently updating our systems and developing the next generation of engagement and delivery platforms," said Vikie Spulak, executive vice president of Carenet Healthcare Services. "As the backbone of our service model, the constant evolution of our technology allows us to deliver a member experience that sets Carenet apart in the industry."
