Chennai, 4th September 2022: Gleneagles Global Health City (GGHC), a leading quaternary multi-specialty healthcare centre in Chennai launched mSirenPilot, a GPS-enabled emergency ambulance tracker for the traffic police in Chennai. The app was launched by Actor Yogi Babu in the presence of Dr. Alok Khullar, CEO, and Dr. Sriram R, HOD & Senior Consultant – Department of Accident & Emergency from Gleneagles Global Health City, Chennai.
The mSirenPilot feature enables traffic police to track the ambulance and ensure clearance of traffic facilitating easier and faster movement of the ambulance. This advanced technology has the potential to assist hospitals and traffic police to monitor the movement of ambulances while transporting patients. mSirenPilot also offers a free mobile app powered by the world’s first “Smart Siren Technology”, which enables road drivers and traffic police to proactively create a Green Corridor and assist emergency ambulances in moving faster through traffic.
“The time delay in treating critical patients worsens the outcome of the treatment. Golden hour is the first 60 minutes in a patient’s life where the patient can be saved if the right treatment is provided. Our emergency team can efficiently track and coordinate with the ambulance to improve the treatment provided.”, said Dr. Sriram R, HOD & Senior Consultant – Department of Accident & Emergency, Gleneagles Global Health City.
Speaking at the launch of the app, Dr. Alok Khullar, CEO, Gleneagles Global Health City said, “Every year, countless lives are lost because of delay in definitive treatment within the “Golden Hour”. With the launch of the mSirenPilot – A Smart Ambulance Platform, support is extended to patients to interact with the hospital’s emergency response team more efficiently and effectively for better outcomes.”
