It is with great pleasure and pride that I introduce Emergicare to you. During my past 30 plus years as an Emergency Medicine Physician and EMS Medical Director in USA, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand the vast differences in Emergency Medical Care Systems and the care available in the US and many of the lesser developed countries. During this period, I have had the opportunity to visit these countries many times as an American Heart Association (AHA) and International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) faculty and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) consultant to train healthcare providers in emergency/trauma care and life support services.
Emergency Medicine (EM) is one of the youngest of medical specialties and compared to the formal and organized manner it is practiced in developed countries, it is still in its infancy in many countries. Most do not have a good system to train, support or assist healthcare providers to be effective and efficient in building a good system. It is to help meet this need that I founded Emergicare, which is dedicated to promoting Emergency Medicine, EMS, Trauma Care Systems and Disaster Readiness systems.
Our Mission :
- Promote Emergency Medicine training globally.
- Enhance the quality of emergency medical care.
- Raise public awareness of the scope of emergency medical services.
- Enhance and optimize Emergency Response and Disaster Preparedness globally.
Any organization with a goal of providing emergency care to the community will concur that being EMS ready is a huge challenge. Having the right people for the right job is often too demanding on a system which is struggling to find the “best hands”. As per studies conducted by various organizations on Emergency Medicine (EM), it is shown that most countries continue to face acute shortage of trained EM and EMS personnel to deal with the growing number of road accident victims and patients who require timely emergency/trauma care.
Having one’s existing staff trained in internationally accepted EM and EMS guidelines is the easiest and fastest way to solve this shortage of ‘right people for the right job’.
I’m sure we can help you and your organization become emergency ready, thus save many more lives and bring to fruition your own mission and vision. Do not hesitate to contact us because we are always happy to help!
