Statement from the European Aero-Medical Institute e.V.

The European Aeromedical Institute, EURAMI, is the international organization responsible for the accreditation of air ambulance and other aviation medical activities. Its accredited members represent those providers who meet the highest standards and medical and aviation safety.  The COVID-10 pandemic has presented enormous challenges related to transportation of COIVD and non-COVID patients alike. It has raised many personal safety and public health concerns in the endeavor to help patients have access to the level of medical care they need or to get home for ongoing medical attention. To meet these demands, EURAMI has promulgated best practices by aeromedical providers to protect patients, crew and the broader community.  However, as with so many other segments of the economy, the pandemic has posed major threats to the integrity of the air ambulance and medical escort industry.  This invaluable industry is profoundly affected by the precipitous drop in travel activity even while the global community continues to turn to them for complicated transportation and even heroic medical solutions. It is important to note that there is generally no public or government safety net ensuring the availability of these critical services which are most often provided by private enterprises.  Hence it is key that the vital role of this often-overlooked segment of the healthcare community be recognized for its critical contribution as well the importance of ensuring its robust endurance for the future. Our industry is, as so many others, faced with unprecedent challenges which we will only overcome by working even closer together.

The European Aero-Medical Institute is keen to support its members during these difficult times and each and salutes every one of them for their tireless work and efforts.

Statement from the European Aero-Medical Institute

EURAMI recognizes that the aeromedical industry has a weighty responsibility in meeting the challenge of coronavirus.  The aeromedical community embraces its role in continuing to serve all types of patients in need of international and domestic transportation assistance as well as serving the needs of coronavirus patients to the best of its ability.   In its effort to support containment of the epidemic while facilitating responsible care of patients and protecting the health of its medical workforce, EURAMI holds its members to the strictest practices of hygiene and international transportation .

Providers who are accredited by EURAMI will be expected to comply in all measures with:

  • Rules of healthcare hygiene before, during, and after  a patient is transported in their aircraft.
  • Respect of all international regulations and country restrictions governing the entry and exit of patients suspected of or having a coronavirus infection. It is expected that EURAMI providers will apprise public health authorities of any plan to repatriate or evacuate a coronavirus patient and obtain approval of the protective measure to be taken.
  • Fully inform  and  prepare all stakeholders involved in the transport of actual or potential coronavirus patients including the sending hospital, all cooperating ground ambulances and the receiving hospital .
  • Follow recommended decontamination procedures for the aircraft and vehicles used and ensure all staff in contact with the patient have been properly protected and are safe to return to duty.
  • Monitor all staff in contact with the patient during transport for at least 14 days for the development of symptoms.

We will continue to monitor the developing situation and will provide further updates asap.

Dr. Bettina Vadera

“Having been a member of EURAMI for many years, and a member of the board from 2008 to 2012, I fully believe in the concept of EURAMI as the leading institute that develops and oversees standards for aero-medical patient transport worldwide.

Through good governance, clear focus, efficient management and experienced auditors, EURAMI has the potential to improve the overall standards in aeromedical patient transport and to get Air Ambulance providers from all over the world, as well as stake holders in the insurance and assistance industry, to agree on the importance of standards where safety and quality of patient care before, during and after aeromedical transport missions is concerned.”

As an auditor, I will bring the following qualities and experience to EURAMI:

  • 21 years of medical expertise and experience in aero-medical patient transport
  • Leadership experience in developing an Air Ambulance Service from early beginnings to successful accreditation
  • Business experience in transforming a not for profit organization into a profitable company.
  • Previous EURAMI Board experience with insight into governance, standards development, air ambulance audits and the relationships between the organization and its membership body.
  • Good knowledge of the African medical and aviation environment
