ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - CampDoc.com and Markel Insurance Company announced today that they will continue working together to help camps reduce risk and improve safety. Building on the initial successes of their partnership that began in 2012, CampDoc.com and Markel will continue in a joint effort to support a safer and healthier camp experience.
CampDoc.com, the leading electronic health record system for camps, allows camp health staff to instantly access vital camper and staff medical information, including allergies and medications. "At CampDoc.com, we are deeply committed to raising the standard and quality of care delivered at summer camps," said Dr. Michael Ambrose, Owner and Director of CampDoc.com. "With Markel's support, we can help solve shared risk management challenges that camps face every day."
Beginning next summer, CampDoc.com will offer pre-packaged medications to summer camps. Camps are devoting an excessive amount of time organizing, preparing and distributing medications every summer. This new service from CampDoc.com will help reduce preventable medication errors and the risk of missed medications or incorrect dosing, helping ensure that every child gets the correct medication at the correct time.
"Our work with CampDoc.com has helped camp directors and nurses identify, assess, and prioritize risks so that they can ensure a successful camp season," said Ian Garner, Markel's Director of Camp & Youth Organization Relations. "We are thrilled to hear that CampDoc.com is expanding to offer an integrated solution with the addition of their pre-packaged medication service. We are excited to continue our commitment to help camps minimize, monitor, and control risk and liability."
Markel camp policyholders will have access to the CampDoc.com electronic health record and pre-packaged medication service at a discounted introductory rate. They can connect to CampDoc.com by signing in to the "Safety Resources" section on Markel's Camp Insurance website, www.campinsurance.com.
