HealthNet Global has launched its state-of-the-art 5G-connected Ambulance at Apollo Multispeciality Hospitals, Kolkata in a groundbreaking move towards revolutionizing emergency healthcare.
By harnessing the power of 5G technology for real-time patient monitoring and swift communication, experts believe that this custom-designed ambulance is poised to redefine the landscape of emergency medical services.
Equipped with cutting-edge medical equipment, this innovative ambulance ensures real-time monitoring of the patient's vital signs. The transmitted data is instantaneously sent to the hospital, allowing emergency room doctors to make critical decisions even before the patient arrives.
Furthermore, the ambulance is outfitted with onboard cameras and bodycams for paramedic staff. The visual data, transmitted over the ultra-fast 5G network, enables doctors to have a live feed. This facilitates collaboration and allows specialists at the hospital to provide virtual guidance for critical procedures.
Taking advantage of the low latency of the 5G network, the hospital's command center can precisely track the ambulance's location in real-time. This feature ensures a swift response time, optimizing the crucial "golden hour" for emergency care.
Mr Vikram Thaploo, CEO of HealthNet Global, shared his enthusiasm about the deployment, saying, "Our 5G-connected Ambulance marks a significant leap forward in emergency medical services. The integration of 5G technology not only facilitates real-time communication and data transmission but also transforms the way we approach emergency care. This deployment underscores our commitment to leveraging innovation for the betterment of healthcare outcomes.”
“As we usher in a new era of healthcare delivery, the 5G-connected Ambulance at Apollo Hospitals, Kolkata, stands as a testament to our unwavering dedication to providing cutting-edge solutions that enhance patient care and improve overall health outcomes. We believe that this technological milestone will set a precedent for the future of emergency medical services, showcasing the transformative power of advanced connectivity in saving lives,” Mr Thaploo added.
Mr Rana Dasgupta, CEO-Eastern Region, Apollo Hospitals Group, commented on the significance of this technological advancement, stating, “Connected ambulances will play a crucial role in assisting emergency department staff in targeting treatment and prioritizing urgent cases. Time is the most critical resource in emergency care, and every second counts. In the past, clinical assessment of the patient could only start once they arrived at the hospital, but now 5G makes a difference."
