EMA Group was founded in 1989 and it is the oldest and largest medical assistance organization in Finland. The operations started with medical assistance and consultation services. From there on the activities expanded to emergency medical services (EMS), consulting and training. In 2011 the company merged to form a bigger group that also includes staffing of health care professionals and health care outsourcing services. At present, our company has 150 employees: physicians from different fields of medical specialties, nurses and other professionals.
The medical assistance service monitors that ill or injured patients outside Finland receive appropriate care. The service includes medical consultations, case management (monitoring of treatment, patient safety and costs) and patient transfers. We also offer special services such as in-flight and marine medical consultation, and medical clearance service for the airlines. Our key customers are Finnish insurance companies, corporations, hospitals and healthcare districts, as well as private individuals. EMA has treated more than 17 000 patients abroad in 150 countries. In one third of the cases we have arranged repatriation with a doctor, nurse or intensive care team.
