International Assistance Group launches new network database
PARIS, June 06, 2016 – International Assistance Group (IAG) is delighted to announce the release of Globus V2; the IAG database is now available on a web-based environment to facilitate access to all users.
A dedicated team worked tirelessly to improve functionalities in the new version of Globus, which now features a powerful search engine, easier and intuitive navigation and enhanced mobile readability. In particular, the useful “decision making” support tool displays the nearest available medical facilities, hospitals of reference and air ambulance services.
All users (exclusive access for IAG Partners only) have a wealth of valuable information, with vast local knowledge pulled together by IAG Partners to help each company make the best decisions in even the most challenging of environments.
Refined search on the map with the use of filters, Medevac planner with the use of filters on type of providers, level of classification and neighbouring countries (e.g. if there is no hospital of reference in the country where the patient is, the company can look at the nearest hospital of reference and which air ambulance is best suited for the transport), new section to inform on services available in case of a disaster, and a Google Map trip planner are a few of the new features of the IAG Globus database.
The first version of Globus was created in 2006 in order to pool the extensive knowledge base held by each International Assistance Group company into one unique, proprietary database which is exclusively available to IAG Partners.
For 10 years Globus database has been providing operational and administrative information on International Assistance Group networks of partners, correspondents, medical providers, and other assistance related providers. “All Partners and Providers shown in our database are carefully selected on the grounds of stringent quality criteria and we are committed to continue providing and maintaining the highest standard of information,” mentioned Cécile Hermetz, General Manager at International Assistance Group.
