ALC Health has added online tools and technology to its dedicated member only service ALC World.

Provided as part of each ALC Health policyholder's membership package, ALC World offers information covering medical facilities and services worldwide including city profiles, a drug and medical phrase translation service and local security updates.

ALC has added a further 500 medical providers to its contracted community, an increase of 9% and 200 additional facilities, an increase of 14%.

The provider has also increased the number of countries included in its Drug Equivalency Guide including the Philippines, Panama, Cyprus, Turkey, Jordan, Bahamas and Jamaica bringing the total number of countries to 42.

Additional languages are now included as part of the Medical Translation Tool which now includes audio and bilateral translations for twelve languages representing the primary languages for 193 countries: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

Andrew Apps, Director at ALC Health adds "For many expatriates, finding the right doctor or medical facility in an unfamiliar country can be difficult at best of times.

"With a further expansion of the online drug translation tool, making sure the correct drug is prescribed when a repeat prescription is needed becomes simple and straightforward".
