MSC Medical Innovation First At Sea

As the cost of attending to our aches and pains, and worse, continues to rise t becomes obvious that some sort of online integration makes sense in ways we could never have imagined. How long until the visit to the doctor is online?

Telemedicine, it's called.

Now it is going to sea. For kids. On MSC Cruises.

Here's how it works, on all 12 ships…

Your child is ill, with something more than the sniffles and a cough. The first stop is the ship's medical facility. If the doctor needs help with a diagnosis, he or she can consult pediatric specialists at the Giannina Gaslini Institute, in Genoa. Consultation includes remote imaging and data transmission, by satellite. This is designed to improve responses that have been only available on land.

The ship can be anywhere in the world…the most remote of locations.

It leaves us with only one question:

What about adults?
