BMC to use app cabs’ technology to cut waiting time for ambulances | Mumbai News


MUMBAI: In order to reduce waiting time of patients for ambulances, the BMC has decided to make use of the technology platform of app cabs so that it can track the movement of government ambulances real-time and despatch them quickly where they are needed.
Civic officials said operators of app-based cabs would provide the BMC with a copy of their existing technology platforms after making suitable modifications in keeping with its needs.
“We will use the software to monitor the location of ambulances and divert the nearest ones to attend to patients,” additional civic chief P Velrasu said. Such monitoring, officials said, would speed up the process of ferrying patients to hospitals and back home and of moving asymptomatic patients and high-risk contacts.
