What Is BlueArch and how do we work?
BlueArch creates a global and cost-free medical consultancy network for doctors in peace and humanitarian field missions.
Think of cases like Ebola, or the chaos after an earthquake where doctors and nurses have to treat injuries and diseases way beyond their level of experience and formal education.
With BlueArch, they find the right expert who also speaks their language and provides the advice they need, 24/7, cost-free provided via video link by a global network of volunteering hospitals and surgeons.
The Medical Consultancy Network
Deployed medical staff are not all qualified and experienced at the same level. Staff recruitment/selection focusses often on general medical practice skills.
Therefore, complicated injuries, epidemic diseases, trauma surgery, toxicology, veterinary cases or neurological cases cannot be assumed to receive treatment of the highest quality without access to off-site specialists.
At the same time, most developed nations possess a highly trained pool of medical experts, doctors, surgeons and other specialists in hospitals with medical personnel on 24/7 duty that would cover most languages and time zones.
BlueArch will create a technology-powered remote medical expertise network for humanitarian, emergency response and peacekeeping field missions – free of charge to all doctors, medical personnel and first responders. High-speed video- and data-links will connect doctors in field hospitals with emergency rooms and medical specialists.
Through these links, highly qualified medical experts can provide 24/7 ad-hoc guidance, analysis and expertise to their peers in the field.
What BlueArch Does
BlueArch establishes a 24/7 medical consultancy network that links field hospitals and medical personnel in humanitarian missions to experts worldwide.
Video-links and specialized information-sharing tools will allow access to highly qualified medical experts able to provide ad-hoc guidance, analysis, and expertise to their peers in the field.

Support Our Expertise Network
Doctors in the field need to work seamlessly with their peers in partnering hospitals around the world.

Field hospitals provide advanced medical aid to humanitarian workers, to communities and to peacekeepers.
Doctors and nurses work under extreme pressure at the frontier, coping with epidemics, treating injuries of children after attacks on their villages, and teaching local medical personnel best practices.
