Academy Medical

Building relationships that make a difference.



Academy Medical is a trusted medical device distribution company run by veterans for veterans. Equipped with a service model that offers advanced supply chain solutions and comprehensive procurement, Academy Medical regularly forms and leverages beneficial relationships with partners in the Federal healthcare agencies, as well as vendors in the healthcare industry. This ensures each patient’s needs are met in the most streamlined manner possible. 

Founded in 2004 by Daniel Shaw, a retired and decorated pilot for the United States Navy, Academy Medical was established with the mission of treating veterans, active members of the military, and their families as inclusively and reasonably as possible. Given the company’s inherent desire to give back to those who have sacrificed so much, Academy Medical is more than willing to do the heavy-lifting on behalf of their clients, which is most often achieved through their connective approach to the procurement process. 

Unlike their competitors, Academy Medical is entirely database-driven, meaning the team is able to consolidate their workflow, effectively overcome the logistical challenges inherent to the medical sales sector, and ultimately deliver the products veterans need to enjoy their everyday lives. Fulfilled by Flightline, this methodology was put in place to reduce — if not entirely eliminate — the loss of time and resources that can so negatively impact patients. 

As a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB), Academy Medical is also uniquely positioned to expand its network across all branches of government, which then opens access to the supplies and technologies the federal procurement community needs the most. 

Furthermore, the company’s team of driven, experienced, and knowledgeable account managers serve as direct advisors to major manufacturing companies, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and the Department of Defense (DoD). Each account manager will then establish long-term relationships with these contacts, offer high-quality products at expertly negotiated prices, and manage contracts, invoices, and order delivery. 

This fulfillment model is much faster than going through ordinary channels, and the context such federal agencies provide allows Academy Medical to communicate the government’s latest needs to their manufacturing partners. This, in turn, ensures each partner is equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to provide the best resources and products to the government as possible.
