New AI and MR Ambulance Enhancing Pre-Hospital Response

AI and MR Powered Connected Ambulance Mediwave Unveiled

Mediwave, the digital healthcare division of Wavenet, which has its headquarters in Singapore, has formed a partnership with 1990 Suwa Seriya, the nationalised pre-hospital ambulance service of Sri Lanka for emergencies, in order to improve the quality of life-saving emergency care by utilising mixed reality and artificial intelligence (AI). The deployment of a fully connected ambulance in Sri Lanka was made possible by the integrated Emergency Response Suite that Mediwave has developed.

Mediwave’s Emergency Response Suite increases the efficiency of emergency medical facilities by transforming critical processes, ensuring rapid reaction times, and providing remote medical care when used with Microsoft HoloLens. This is accomplished by delivering heightened levels of care remotely. Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are able to track vitals, offer personalised treatment before showing up at the healthcare facility, and set up a virtual meeting with the doctor at the Emergency Command and Control Centre (ECCC) thanks to advancements in electronic communication, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and AR. This has the potential to improve the quality of care provided during the window of opportunity that is the golden hour of medical emergencies.

When it comes to responding to medical crises, the 1990 Suwa Seriya claims an exceptional reaction time of 11 minutes and 38 seconds, which is faster than the response times of several wealthy nations. Those who work in emergency services get training via the use of augmented reality simulations and are provided with information to help them deal with particular crises. In addition, the system makes use of a speech-to-text transcriber offered by Mediwave, which is driven by artificial intelligence, in order to digitise Electronic Patient Care Records (ePCR). This takes away hold ups in Emergency Treatment Units and reduces the likelihood of human mistake.

The company takes great satisfaction in being the exclusive provider of pre-hospital emergency ambulance services in Sri Lanka, which is the 1990 Suwa Seriya. It is at the crossroads of augmented reality and artificial intelligence, and has a history of success and partnership with veterans in the health sector. The Emergency Response Suite, which is the first of its kind and effortlessly elevates the efficiency of emergency services, is the lifeblood of the business’s pioneering efforts, as stated by Mediwave’s Chief Executive Officer, Suren Pinto.

The Minister of Health, the Honourable Ramesh Pathirana, made a statement at the launch ceremony that took place in Colombo, Sri Lanka. He said that the country’s national emergency ambulance service operates a fleet of 322 ambulances. Pathirana added that the dedication of authorities involved extends to the further expansion of this service via the use of life-enhancing technologies in order to make emergency medical treatment more accessible.

A paradigm change has occurred in pre-hospital emergency management as a result of this programme, which has also established a precedent for efficient emergency response systems. It has also shown the revolutionary potential of artificial intelligence and mixed reality on a worldwide scale.
