Medikoe, An Online Medical Platform Ties Up With Manipal To Launch App To Initiate Emergency Care Treatment

Medikoe has joined hands with “Manipal Ambulance Response Service” (MARS) along with technology partner Helpzone Technologies to initiate emergency care treatment in Bangalore.

Customers can click the SOS button to alert five people about any medical emergency using geo-location and get immediate help from Manipal Emergency care. This request will get automatically directed to the first level emergency consultation by Manipal Doctors. If need be, they can also get access to an ambulance rushed to the emergency location as fast as possible.

“We come across cases of emergencies like road accidents quite often. When we encounter such crisis situations that also include elder treatments, cardiac arrest etc., finding the right number to calling in a hurry becomes tough. Moreover, if the patients are outside their town when they need emergency care, it is quite possible that they may not be aware of how to contact the closest hospital with advanced emergency care facilities,”said Sreevalsan Menon, Founder and CEO of Medikoe.
