Online "Guide to Host Nation Healthcare" available
HEIDELBERG, Germany – An online "Guide to Host Nation Healthcare" is now available on ERMC health facility Web pages to promote understanding of local medical facilities and providers who support Army health care in Europe.
"The Europe Regional Medical Command coordinated "Guide" contents with each our health clinic facilities to increase beneficiaries’ comfort zone when receiving care at host nation medical facilities," said Col. David Carden, director of ERMC Clinical Operations.
Carden said the TRICARE Host Nation Preferred Provider Network and more than 40 host nation medical facilities support Army health facilities in Europe by delivering quality care Soldiers, Families and other beneficiaries.
Each "Guide" has localized information about emergency care, host nation medical practices and the referral process, as well as an overview of each medical facility.
"There are maps, driving directions, frequently asked questions, and more," said ERMC Web manager Phil Tegtmeier, who coordinated development with the Fort Detrick Network Enterprise Center, which supports Army Medical Department Web sites.
Each clinic "Guide" can be accessed from a map of ERMC health facilities at http://ermc.amedd.army.mil/MTF
Print versions of the "Guide to Host Nation Healthcare" will be available at Army health facilities in June.
