Set Sail to Better Care

MD at Sea enables crew and passengers to talk to an MD across 12 subspecialties 24/7/365 from anywhere.

The Facts.

HealthcareLive’s Virtual First solution has a proven track record in being the leader in the maritime space.

Treating a wide array of specialties, HealthcareLive prioritizes crew and passenger health first.

Our philosophy is to bring the specialist to the front end of a case to establish an accurate diagnosis – and then decide on a treatment plan. This helps resolve cases at sea, cut down unnecessary imaging, and erase the costly delays in healthcare.

We take care of everything so you don’t have to, from scheduling to shore-side appointments, procedures, and even up to and including surgery. We make sure you’re covered from start to finish.
