Tech-enabled ambulances can reduce response time significantly and ultimately reduce healthcare costs

Outpatient service innovation and digitisation will minimise costs, improve patient safety, and increase survival rates.

Ambulances are no longer used specifically for the transfer of patients. ICU services within the ambulance include some advanced life support. Ambulances, a new idea of dialysis on wheels, are now even being used to provide dialysis. More of these advances can be seen in the future to provide patient care that is open and affordable.

What are the drivers of digitalisation in ambulance services?

In ambulance and emergency services, the top drivers of digitalisation are;

Geotagging and GPS: This is a technology dating back a decade, but it is still far from being applied for real-time emergency tracking in emergency services in India.

Big data in emergency healthcare will aid with the past medical history of a patient, so doctors will start treating such patients for any sudden disease (if necessary) as early as possible. It facilitates as well;

  • Lower rate of initial diagnostic errors through prior record review of patients

  • More detailed staffing

  • Strategic emergency positioning

The SaaS platform helps fill the technology gap.
EHR (Electronic records of healthcare) and blockchain
Growth of connected wearable devices This will help recognise high-risk patients (heart rate monitors, sweat metres, oximeters, etc.) and will help provide emergency healthcare services with improved preparedness.

Because of the nature of the business, the customer needs a voice of trust in an emergency, so a human touch / reassurance is still needed at the front, and we incorporate the technology at the backend to speed up the dispatch process , reduce response time and exchange vital data.

  • Emergency response systems are unorganised and untraceable in India.
  • Data gaps pose a challenge to safe, continuing and successful patient care
  • Strategically positioning the ambulance by evaluating emergency data collected over time
  • Expedite the dispatch and reduce response time to identify and assign the nearest available ambulance
  • The transition to healthcare providers / emergency rooms of essential emergency details
  • For the construction of the digital emergency database and quality improvement by analysing the data
  • By analysing how many calls a call centre worker can answer in order to meet the required workforce requirements, as planned for a 100 percent call response rate

unique aspects that digital ambulances
To comprehend market trends and high-risk regions, historical data and data from previous experiences with patients can be used. This data can be used to evaluate the country’s disease pattern or type of emergency. Good data-backed understanding will help us take the appropriate action on the public’s different health indicators while gaining early awareness of health risks. Decision-makers would also benefit from this in making and enforcing health policy and allocating budgets for various diseases. Read More In Source
