Welcome to Synige Medx…where saving lives is our business!

Synige MedX exists to challenge the current model for healthcare provision, through innovative structuring that reduces the direct and indirect cost of medical care.

Due to our extensive experience accrued in pre-hospital emergency care, our business model is based on a comprehensive Medical Emergency Readiness Plan (MERP) which entails five aspects:

  • WELLNESS AWARENESS - Consulting, Workshops, Screening & Testing
  • OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY - Risk Assessment & Compliance
  • SUPPLY - Equipment & Consumable Medical Supplies
  • EVENT MEDICAL MANAGEMENT - Consulting & Staffing
  • TRAINING - CPR, First Aid, AED, Fire & Heights

MERP identifies resources (People, Equipment, and Procedures), both internal and external that can be called upon to provide aid in a medical emergency. On implementation of MERP, you are assured that a reliable, steadfast, auditable and responsible medical plan, based on your specific needs, is in place whereby laypersons and dedicated first responders within your company are trained and equipped to save lives!

PLAN

assess medical threats, to action and respond appropriately.

Prevent

illness and injury as it is more economically sustainable than treatment.

PROVIDE

education, training and advanced emergency care.

About

In 2015, Simon, Nicholas and George incubated the concept of what is now SynigeMedX. The name Synige originates from the three partners first names also…. because it sounded cool and smart!
The executive management model SynigeMedX has chosen, is of a proactive board that speaks as one voice and is a good model because the CEO and the board are on the same page and speak with a single voice. This model is proactive in taking advantage of emerging opportunities and is especially valuable in an entrepreneurial business such as ours.

The skills of our management team have been developed with over 35 years’ experience in

the provision of medical clinics, services and support in:

  • Ambulance Operations in Urban, Peri-Urban and rural environments (EU and SADC)
  • Fixed and Rotary Wing Air Ambulance Operations (US, EU, North Africa and SADC)
  • Oil, Gas and Mineral Exploration (offshore/onshore, Arctic, Tropics, Desert, Mountain)
  • Events Management: Concerts, Film and TV, Endurance/Extreme Sports and Motor racing
  • Close protection medical support (D.R.C, Chad, C.A.R, Iraq, Afghanistan)
  • Incident Response Planning and Investigation
  • Occupational Health and Safety Management
  • Search and Rescue
  • Health Risk Assessments
  • Critical Incident Stress Debriefing
  • Mining – Open cast, Alluvial

GEORGE SCOLA

Chief Business Officer (CBO)

george@synigemedx.com

After many years working for a local bank, George left to start-up his own company specialising in mortgage origination and debt consolidation which eventually lead to the establishment of a funding platform to enable loans originated, to be securitized.

Out of the blue, on the morning of 26th of April 2008, George aged 37, suffered an Ischemic stroke which left him with a right hemiparesis and expressive aphasia.  Within 10 months of his stroke his business suffered and collapsed…along with his marriage.

In 2010, frustrated after reaching out and searching for support and not finding what he needed and/or required at the time, George co-founded The Stroke Survivors Foundation (SSF), a non-profit organization (www.strokesurvivors.org.za), the aim of which is to provide support to other stroke survivors and their families, and to create stroke awareness in South Africa,

In 2016 George was elected on to the World Stroke Organisation Board of Directors. (http://www.world-stroke.org/)

With George’s first-hand experience and understanding the value and importance of both paramedic and/or first responders in a medical emergency, he jumped at the opportunity to partner with seasoned and experienced Paramedics.

George is passionate about SynigeMedX’s vision and due to his limitations from the stroke, his role and responsibility is the administration, financial, and operational management of the company.

Adapt. Improvise. Overcome!

Services

Medical Management is similar to Emergency Response Planning in that resources need to be applied to the identification, prevention and treatment of Illness and Injury on time scales varying from a few hours to months or years. The settings for events can be a boardroom in a 5-star hotel all the way to a bush camp in a politically unstable part of the world. Each has its own special requirements that need to be address before there is an incident.
