Avea Mobile Ambulance Application


Human life is precious. That’s why one of Turkey’s biggest mobile phone operators, Avea, decided to partner with Innova to develop a Mobile Ambulance Application designed to improve the speed and reliability of communications between ambulances and hospitals.

The two companies, which are both members of the Turk Telekom Group, worked alongside the Turkish Health Ministry to implement its Mobile Hospital Solutions project. The Mobile Ambulance Application was one of the key results of this work, making it possible to deliver information about patients to emergency wards even before the ambulance arrives. The application allows paramedics to send data via a mobile device using a 3G connection. The data is then monitored by specialist emergency ward doctors to give them vital extra time to make necessary preparations and thus improve the chances of the patient, particularly in life-threatening emergencies.

The Mobile Ambulance Application offers a complete end-to-end mobile solution, as it is fully integrated with other applications used in the health sector. It is designed to reduce data entry requirements as much as possible, increasing the number of multiple-choice options in order to simplify and speed up communication. The application was first put into use by Ankara Keçiören Hospital and its ambulance services located in Turkey’s capital city. The mobile ambulance application enables the use of mobile devices for data entry, and for the photographing and marking of injured areas on the device’s screen. This information is then pushed to displays used by emergency service management teams, alerting the health professional most suited to respond to the patient’s particular injuries.

 

In addition, in order to guarantee the application’s ease of use, the interface was designed to make full use of touchscreen features and to be used both vertically and horizontally. Mobile Ambulance Application users are allowed different levels of access to the system depending on their job definitions and levels of authorisation. With this application all tests and treatments carried out at the Ankara Keçiören Hospital are stored safely within a central application and can be used to provide data for reporting and analysis.

 

Avea and Innova are proud to have developed a system which will help make the best possible use of hospital transport time.
