Lakshmi, a housewife in Bangalore called for an ambulance service when her pregnant daughter Prema sustained abdominal pain. After waiting for 1 hour 15 minutes when ambulance services still hadn’t arrived through Bangalore’s high traffic roads, finally, they decided it would be better to take their daughter in an auto-rickshaw than waiting for an ambulance.
Have you ever faced any such emergency situation where you are lack of emergency medical services & delayed ambulance services?
Every year India records millions of deaths due to non-availability & delayed medical attention like ambulance services, blood, and first aid during emergencies within the “golden hour”. And the reason for this delay includes a surge in motorization, poor infrastructure, unusual ambulance costing, undisciplined drivers which cause unbeatable traffic & makes ambulance delay.
During such an emergency, finding the nearest ambulance & first responders is a cumbersome task. If you know your nearby ambulance & connecting that ambulance at that point in time could mean a difference between life & death.
Although India has its own medical emergency number like 108, 102 for emergency medical services, there is no serious platform which could address this issue & caters all emergency medical services at the user’s fingertips.
To make this process easier, Arera Technologies have come up with the solution to find the nearest Ambulance services & connecting them based on your location of emergency mainly to provide immediate assistance.
It’s all started with an incident involving a family member of Praveen Gowda (CEO and Co-founder, VMEDO), who had to suffer for a long time due to the unavailability of prompt emergency medical care in Shimoga. It was in Nov 2014, when Praveen discussed this unfortunate incident with his friend Darshan M K (COO and Co-founder, VMEDO), VMEDO was born.
