The healthcare sector is currently facing a global challenge characterized by increasing demand, a shortage of staff and rising costs. Hospitals in particular, are experiencing congestion and inefficient solutions, making them the most expensive care option. Hospitals often struggle with capacity issues, leading to long waitlists for patients in need.In addition, emergency services use outdated communications, relying on 20-year-old 2G technology, while industry is using video and 5G networks.
To address these challenges, patient-centric, shared care models aim to deliver better outcomes at lower cost. Hospitals are actively exploring home hospital implementation, where patients can receive quality care at home. Furthermore, many ambulance services are piloting connected ambulance technology. By leveraging modern technology and connectivity, ambulances can enhance communication, streamline data sharing, and improve coordination with hospitals and other healthcare providers. This technology integration in emergency services improves emergency response times and overall patient care.
