May 11, 2016 / A&K Global Health

North Carolina, USA – May 11, 2016: Last week,  A&K Global Health became the first U.S.-based medical travel facilitator to earn Temos certification.

Temos stands for Trust, effective medicine, and optimized services. It is a neutral and independent certification body headquartered in Germany with regional representation in many other countries, including China, Colombia, Cyprus, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Jordan, Malaysia, Oman, the Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. Its mission is to optimize medical care for travelers and expatriates worldwide – a goal naturally aligned with A&K Global Health’s values, and with our vision for facilitating universal access to quality, affordable, transparent and comprehensive health management.

“It is a great pleasure to welcome A&K Global Health as the first medical travel coordinator from the United States as [a] Temos-certified partner. Congratulations!” said Dr. Claudia Mika, Founder and CEO of Temos International, in announcing A&K Global Health’s successful completion of the certification process. “It has been a pleasure to go through [your] documents, website and questionnaire and to understand how A&K Global Health is serving and supporting patients and [their] relatives worldwide.”

Temos supports medical facilities like hospitals, clinics, dental practices, and rehabilitation centers worldwide in their continuous efforts toward quality improvement. Since 2010, Temos has certified more than 50 medical facilities globally. In December 2015, Temos launched a quality program for medical travel coordinators as well. This unique opportunity provides certification for companies that, like A&K Global Health, facilitate clinical, logistical and financial services for patients traveling outside their home country to receive accredited medical services abroad.

In accordance with Temos’s trusted name and reputation for quality, the process for certification is stringent. Candidate companies like A&K Global Health first complete a self-evaluation questionnaire and submit a detailed package of documentation, including policy letters, contracts, and client feedback, that together reflect the candidate company’s experience and success in the field of medical travel. Next, a Temos team of internationally-experienced medical doctors and quality management experts conducts a thorough review of these records to ensure that all services provided by the candidate company meet or exceed Temos’s uncompromising quality standards.

Medical travel facilitators who successfully complete this process obtain the Temos Certificate, the Seal of Quality indicating optimized medical travel services for international patients. A&K Global Health is proud to announce that we not only satisfied all requirements for certification, but also received a near-perfect score in Temos’s rigorous assessment. We now join other Temos-certified organizations in their international directory, a prestigious online index.

“We are very honored to be associated with Temos and I am proud that A&K Global Health will be a Temos partner at the IMTJ Medical Travel Summit this [month],” said Morgan Darwin, A&K Global Health CEO.

“My Operations Officer in Nairobi was excellent. She was competent and knowledgeable. My Operations Officer in India was very courteous and very helpful. My meet and greet at the airport was very cooperative and helpful. All of my transfers were excellent and were some of the best arrangements. My hotel was located close to the hospital. A&K Global Health set up the best arrangement for my travel and I have been honored, in the best way.
