mPassport(sm) Delivers Peace of Mind for Global Business Travelers

RADNOR, Pa., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- HTH Worldwide, a global health and safety services company, today announced that HRG North America's Affiliate Program will be a distribution partner for mPassport(sm), HTH's new worldwide mobile healthcare tool. mPassport subscribers have access to HTH's proprietary global database of carefully selected emergency and urgent care services, contracted English-speaking doctors, health and safety alerts, and medical translations that can be accessed via mobile phone or the Internet.

"HRG North America's Affiliates have corporate clients that are conducting business around the globe, and mPassport provides them with the peace of mind they need to focus on the job at hand," said Chris Dane, President of HRG Affiliates, LLC. "We're extremely pleased to offer them mPassport. Whether they have the flu or something more serious, they'll be able to quickly find the best doctors and hospitals to give them the right treatment and get them back to work."

mPassport was developed in response to travelers' emerging demand to have access to top-flight medical care around the world. It delivers subscribers access to high-quality doctors and medical information in the palm of their hand. mPassport is accessible via any web-enabled international mobile phone. Users can set up their personal profile via the web so that their destination- specific information is easily accessible and up-to-date. In addition to doctor and hospital contacts, mPassport subscribers also get translations of medication brand names, translations for major medical phrases useful for communicating with hospital and physician staff, and text message alerts about issues such as political instability, evacuations, natural disasters, medical epidemics and other related emergencies.

"HRG North America's Affiliate customers are the ideal mPassport subscribers because they are frequently overseas with limited knowledge of the local medical community," said Andy Orr, HTH Worldwide's Product Manager for mPassport. "In the past, they may have asked their hotel concierge to recommend a doctor. mPassport is their gateway to a much more reliable and satisfactory experience when medical issues arise."

HTH Worldwide also offers international health insurance for business travelers and expatriates, who often have serious gaps in the coverage provided by their company's domestic health insurance policies. HTH members have free, unlimited access to mPassport. As an added value, they can also request HTH to schedule an appointment with doctors listed in the mPassport database.
