Who We Are
Developed over the past 30 years, Shoreland is an experienced team of more than 30 medical professionals, researchers, software developers, editors, customer service representatives, and executives who focus solely on maintaining and enhancing Travax, ensuring users always have the best possible experience.
We are the industry leader in providing accurate, comprehensive, and current travel health guidance. Whether the threat is dengue fever for a recreational traveler, political violence for a business traveler, or the availability of reliable medical infrastructure for expatriates affected by a natural disaster, the Shoreland team provides up-to-date knowledge and carefully reasoned recommendations.
We've published Travax since 1986 to give health care professionals near-real-time data and recommendations for preventive and protective measures related to international health risks and location-specific medical and environmental threats. Our focus includes helping organizations to plan for and support their operations abroad. We provide data on resources available in local environments to meet the needs of traveler and expatriate populations.
With office locations in Milwaukee (WI), Arlington (VA), and Birmingham (AL), our technical, editorial, and service staff are available Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Central Time, to answer questions and resolve subscriber needs.
The Shoreland Process
Using detailed research protocols, critical analysis, and a commitment to creating usable information, Shoreland produces nuanced recommendations to guide decision-making regarding health and safety issues in any area of the world.
Shoreland develops its publications with guidance and collaborative input from its medical advisors and global partners, internationally recognized academic leaders and active practitioners in the fields of travel medicine, global occupational health and safety, tropical medicine, and infectious diseases who provide on-the-ground knowledge from nearly every country.
Research and editorial staff monitor and synthesize data and reporting from more than 100 international health resources to give Travax subscribers up-to-date information that is tailored to the individual traveler's needs, going beyond the public health orientation of governmental and international organizations.
Our team follows established schedules and protocols to monitor and evaluate data published by a wide spectrum of national, regional, and international disease-monitoring organizations, including the U.S. CDC; WHO and its affiliated entities, regional offices, and topical publications; Health Canada; ECDC; and many national ministries of health. In addition, we monitor all relevant professional journals; leading international news media websites; the consular websites of the U.S., Canadian, U.K., and Australian governments; and other relevant international health information sources, such as ProMED-mail.
Travel health professionals know they can rely on Shoreland to distill into Travax only the relevant and clinically useful practical information from this large number of reporting organizations.
