Medical case management for maritime operators

An acute illness or injury can happen at any time, and when a crew member or guest requires emergency shoreside treatment or hospitalisation, maritime operators need support from medical case management experts.

VIKAND provides 24/7 medical case management, with comprehensive support, coordination, reporting and expertise for health emergencies worldwide.

Each year, we manage thousands of cases onboard. Led by a team of seasoned maritime professionals, we understand the unique challenges involved in delivering exceptional health services.

Real People, Real Experiences

“We wanted to let you know what a godsend you were to me and my husband. [My case manager] was in contact with me every day, asking how I was recovering and helping me navigate extremely stressful times while in the hospital. She assisted not only with personal encouragement, but by frequently reaching out to our insurance company.”

The medical case manager performed with unqualified excellence during my wife’s hospital stay in Valencia. She guided us with truly knowledgeable compassion throughout the hospitalization to discharge, and was always the link to the next step as we worked towards my wife’s recuperation.

Halfway through a Viking Cruise from Istanbul to Barcelona, I had an accident while docked in Chioggia, Italy. Unfortunately, I had to be transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where I underwent surgery and spent 17 days recovering. I wanted to let you know what a compassionate, caring and helpful person [my case manager] was and for her to receive the recognition she deserves. I appreciate the assistance we received to help us navigate everything required to get us back home to the United States.”

“I’ve been working on ships for 8 years now [and] needed to disembark and seek medical attention ashore. The feeling of being unwell and uncertain in a foreign country…was scary. But then VIKAND stepped in [and] so many people came together at once to provide support and reassure me… Besides logistics and technicalities, it’s the feeling of safety and security.”
