Because of the faster speeds and higher bandwidth of the 5G network, doctors from far away can conduct real-time clinical assessments of the patient in the ambulance.
NEW DELHI: Medulance Healthcare has launched a 5G-smart connected ambulance in collaboration with Reliance Jio, the country’s largest telecom operator. The vehicle is outfitted with cameras and smart devices that enable real-time, two-way audio and video communication, high-definition footage transmission, ambulance location tracking, and real-time streaming of patient health data to a distant doctor via the fast 5G network.
This alerts the nearest hospital and staff, allowing them to better manage the patient upon arrival and save critical time. The Medulance Healthcare ambulance connected with high-speed 5G aims to revolutionise the landscape of emergency healthcare in rural India by connecting an ambulance to a hospital almost anywhere in the country.
The Medulance 5G ambulance transmits a patient’s vitals and other health data directly from the vehicle to the hospital, where doctors can instruct the paramedic staff via a seamless digital connection. This allows the patient to be treated even while on the way to the hospital, during the critical ‘golden hour’ when prompt medical attention can save someone’s life, particularly in medical emergencies such as heart attack, brain stroke, or accidents and trauma. The ambulance will also benefit patients in rural and remote areas that are far from healthcare facilities.
Medulance Healthcare Co-Founder Ravjot Arora says: ” We can transform traditional patient care by combining 5G with other cutting-edge technologies. In medical emergencies, real-time data relay and monitoring can save lives. 5G promises to enable a new health ecosystem that not only meets the needs of the provider and the patient, but also makes the healthcare network more accurate, efficient, convenient, cost-effective, and sustainable. “
Medulance is India’s first, Integrated Emergency Response provider with a fleet of 7,500+ ambulances for fast and reliable first-point medical attention, spread across 60+ cities in the country. It offers prompt, reliable and efficient ambulance services that can be as convenient as finding a taxi.
