The 5G-enabled service has drawn much attention from both healthcare academics and practitioners, as the fifth-generation (5G) network comes to the fore. The 5G enabled ambulance service seamlessly connects the patient and ambulance crew at the accident scene, or in transit, along with the awaiting emergency department team at the destination hospital, thereby enhancing the rescue rate of patients.
About Medulance 5G enabled ambulances
Shortly after the launch of 5G services in India, telecom operator Reliance Jio associated with Medulance Healthcare, an emergency medical response service provider, in order to launch its 5G-Smart connected ambulance. The healthcare ambulance connected with high-speed 5G strives to revolutionize the landscape of emergency healthcare in rural India by connecting an ambulance to a hospital, nearly anywhere in the country. The ambulance is equipped with cameras and smart devices that allow 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 through the high-speed 5G network. It helps in forewarning the nearest hospital and staff to competently manage the patient on arrival and save critical time.
The ambulance also allows real-time transmission of patients’ vitals and other health data directly to the hospital, where doctors can instruct the paramedic staff via a seamless digital connection. Through this, the patient can be administered treatment even during the commute to the hospital and can save someone’s life, mainly in medical emergencies like heart attack, brain stroke, or accidents and trauma. This vehicle is a boon to patients in rural and remote areas located far away from healthcare facilities. Real-time clinical assessment is possible with the help of greater speed, ultra-low latency, and higher bandwidth of the 5G network.
Medulance is an integrated Emergency Response provider with over 7,500 ambulances for fast and dedicated first-point medical attention, spread across over 60 cities in the country.
