Pilot Medical Solutions Favors AME’s
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, August 15, 2001 – Pilot Medical Solutions provides case management services to reduce physician workload and streamline aeromedical certification.
Aeromedical practitioners and their pilots utilize the services of Pilot Medical Solutions, Inc. to request, organize and submit documents to the Aerospace Medical Certification Division (AMCD) of the FAA. Case management services are tailored to reduce the delays typically associated with Special Issuance medical applications or for other cases requiring supporting documentation. These services are FREE to AME’s who may also receive patient referrals from Pilot Medical Solutions.
Pilot Medical Solutions provides treating physician specialists with sample documents and checklists outlining FAA requirements. Pilot Medical Solutions synergistic case management program serves the dual objectives of assisting AME’s with documentation and helping pilots obtain timely flight privileges.
Service Features include:
- Oklahoma City office location permitting fast physical submission of documents to FAA AMCD
- Proactive collaboration with all medical practitioners/facilities to assemble records essential to aeromedical decisions
- Patient referrals to AME’s from Pilot Medical Solutions via toll-free pilot contact numbers and website
In addition, often all essential documentation may be made available at the time of the FAA medical examination, saving valuable time once lost to tracking down records. In many cases where an airman’s exam was traditionally deferred a medical certificate may be issued.
