Mission

To save lives by making emergency healthcare accessible & affordable.

Vision

To make emergency care accessible in 10 minutes for every Indian.

Where do we even start?!

a. India’s healthcare has three major problems - Accessibility to healthcare, accessibility to quality healthcare, and affordability of quality healthcare.

b. According to Lancet, more than 2.4 million people died in India in 2016 due to conditions that could have been treated by healthcare. Of this, nearly 1.6 million people — 66% — died of poor quality of the healthcare services received

c. Every year, around 33% of road accidents and 99% of cardiac arrests victims do not survive in India as compared to 2% and 70% respectively in the US. The differences in survival rate are attributed to access to quality treatment during the “platinum minutes” (10 mins or less, following traumatic injury) [EPW 2018]

d. According to reports , more than 70% of emergencies can be handled at home. But due to the lack of proper skills, there is a dependency on hospital admissions. This does not only increase the financial burden by over 40% but also denies admission of patients who deserve quality emergency care.

e. 65% of the total health spend is out-of-pocket expenditure which increases the risk of vulnerable groups slipping into poverty.

f. Majority of small & medium scale healthcare facilities lack the necessary skill set & infrastructure to handle medical emergencies efficiently. More than 70% of primary healthcare is delivered by untrained & unskilled providers. (J-PAL)

How do we intend to solve this problem?

  • Using the power of technology, we bring together all the stakeholders - patient, healthcare providers, on one platform, that will ensure smooth & swift flow of information during a medical emergency.

  • On one platform, people can book an ambulance, access information of hospitals in their vicinity, connect with blood donors, buy medical equipment, and also upskill themselves with emergency care training.

  • To solve the problem of accessibility to quality emergency care in platinum minutes, we take quality emergency care to the doorstep of the person in need. A fully equipped emergency response vehicle backed by highly trained Paramedic, and a doctor online, attend to the medical emergency, stabilize, and also safely transport the patient to the nearby facility if need arises.

Our Impact

We have reduced emergency response time from 45 minutes to 30 minutes. Our target is to further reduce the response time to 10 minutes in more cities across India.
