With the new 5G feature, RPM’s fleet of ambulances now allows for remote diagnosis by enabling seamless connection between patients, ambulance staff and medical experts using etisalat by e&’s 5G private network.
Response Plus Medical’s 350+ ambulance fleet will benefit from the high speed and low latency of the 5G network allowing vehicles to locate patients who need immediate care in critical moments, as well as enabling real-time transmission of patient vitals and health data from the vehicle directly to the command center or hospital.
Lizinda Van Heerden, Response Plus Medical’s Integrated Ambulance Fleet In charge commented “I think we are moving into an era of excitement. Technology advancement will improve patient care in emergency situations; this 5G network will provide real-time data, which will be exchanged between first responders and medical practitioners. Data will be transferred faster with low latency, enabling images to be analyzed quickly. This will lead to a more accurate diagnosis before the patient arrives at the hospital.
It is noteworthy that this is the first fleet of ambulances in the UAE to be connected over a 5G private network, which will further contribute to elevating the standards of the country’s healthcare sector by providing effective solutions that deliver advanced patient care, support professionals, and promote the well-being of the population.
