The 500 plus Private Ambulances that exist in twin cities are integrated with Call Ambulance, an Emergency Response Mobile App.
Disclosing this in a press note issued here today, Jagadish, COO Call Ambulance informed that these ambulances are not connected to 108 or any other hospital. All these ambulance providers operate on their own and consumers have to reach out to them individually to avail of their services. Lack of knowledge of their availability and geographical location, consumers/patients are not able to use these existing ambulances. These ambulances do not share real time availability and cannot share exact location too.
CallAmbulance has integtrated all these private ambulance on to its platform to connect to people. By displaying the real time availability and exact location, it makes it easy for the consumers to find the nearest ambulances, their rate cards, type of ambulance (Basic Life Support, Advanced Life Support, transportation ambulance etc.) and book one according to their requirements. This will improve the efficiency of usage of existing ambulances rather than building new ambulances to improve emergency services in the city, Jagadish added.
Suresh, Gandhi Hospital Ambulance Owners Association President says “Earlier we had great difficulty in communicating our location. Now with new CallAmbulance technology everything is streamlined. We can now make more than one trip per day and service many more needful patients”
“By getting the private ambulances onto our network, we are helping the consumer find ambulance nearest to them and know the specific location of the ambulance. We plan to get every private ambulances onto the network in a phased manner”.
Consumers can book these private ambulances for other transportation needs also. For e.g. elderly people who are on dialysis to manage their Kidney related diseases and need to visit dialysis centers, after a knee replacement surgery to go back home from the hospital etc.
Private ambulance drivers can request to join the CallAmbulance platform by sending a WhatsApp message to 810-617-3902.
