Analysis of 15 years results of remote occupational health care in oil and gas production industries.

Methods, Procedures, Process

Continuous observation, statistical analysis of morbidity, mortality, and treatment results in industrial personnel at different endpoints depending on the variability of care models. Cost-efficacy analysis of several occupational health interventions. Targeted polls of Customers. Dynamics of new Customers.

Results, Observations, Conclusions

The best practices which provide the maximum efficacy include risk assessment and risk management, action planning for emergencies, telemedicine, education, registry maintenance. Each of all these gave a 10-100-fold rise in Customer satisfaction, seriously improved medical statistics. Telemedicine implies both: the delivery of highly specialized diagnostic technologies directly to the industrial production site, where a GP or paramedic is present, and it implements the direct replacement of medics with gadgets at the patient's bedside. Education involves hands-on training for both industrial personnel at remote sites and for medical professionals who provide care. The 2020-21 COVID19 pandemic was a great real stress test for remote health models when systemic integrated management procedures played a pivotal role in ensuring smooth industry operation due to the high quality of back medical services.

Novel/Additive Information

Modern efficient models of medical care for remote industries are necessarily comprehensive, modular, adaptive, and rely on personnel health registers. Remote health practices gain a 5-15% rise in price every year, but it pays off in greater labor productivity and in improving the health of industry personnel.
