MUrgency

MUrgency's ONE GLOBAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK is an innovative tech platform using the power of cloud technology to aggregate existing medical resources to reach quick efficient effective and inexpensive emergency medical reponse to a patient or victim by alerting the nearest medical responder online in the system. We believe MUrgency's ONE GLOBAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK can transform emergency medical response service globally both in the developing countries where no such infrastructure exists and in the developed world where good infrastructure exists but is stretched due to increasing calls and reducing budgets. ONE GLOBAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK can save millions of lives otherwise lost today for want of timely medical care at low capital expenditure and low ongoing operating expenditure.

We founded an emergency ambulance service in 2003 with 2 Ambulances and grew it to 3000+ ambulances & 10000+ employees transporting 12500+ critical patients / victims every day. Similarly, we have launched the pilot project of ONE GLOBAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK in Punjab State in India and is now extending it to New Delhi NCR (National Capital Region) and Metropolitan Mumbai. We now have 300+ Hospitals, 500+ Ambulances and 3000+ Medical Responders on the Platform ready to scale.

How does your innovation work?

One Global Emergency Response Network is a worldwide community-based network of people helping people, available to anyone, anytime, anywhere at the tap of a mobile phone. Building on the technology and success of MUrgency's proven work, the platform enables people in urgent need to instantly mobilize local qualified first responders, cutting down response times to health or relief points and overcoming scarcity of public emergency services. With mobile penetration now standing at 7 billion subscriptions globally, the network will benefit individuals, families, communities and health services worldwide by enabling millions of people to respond to millions of emergencies, whether individual crises or large-scale disasters. The project will create an 'Uber-like' platform for emergencies, bringing IFRC's global base of 17 million trained volunteers onto the worldwide network. We will build a free, open network so additional relevant partners can seamlessly plug into the platform over time, growing our responder base, expanding functionality, and building financial sustainability over the long-term. In developing countries, improving pre-hospital response could decrease trauma-linked mortality by 25%. In developed environments, the network represents a transformational alternative for emergency response, delivering the benefits of collective intelligence and instant mobilization of certified emergency responders without the high cost of revamping outdated 911 systems.

What is your strategy for expanding use of your innovation?

MUrgency Digital / Mobile platform: Within 6-12 months, front- and back- end infrastructure will be upgraded to global scale, including enhanced cyber-security. Within 12 months, functionality will include traffic routing to closest appropriate medical facilities. Within 18 months, SMS compatibility will enable non-smart phone users to request assistance. Within 18 months, digital entry points will be established to register civil society organizations and public institutions, to integrate real-time mapping of local capacity and assets. IFRC Network: We will onboard local IFRC networks in a phased approach, prioritizing large countries with significant IFRC presence, a need for improved emergency services, high mobile penetration, and enabling regulatory conditions. Initial high-priority countries are India and the Philippines in Asia, Ethiopia and Nigeria in Africa, and the U.S. and Mexico in North America Within 12 months, we will reach 10% of the world and register 1 million volunteers. Within 24 months, we will reach 30% of the world and register 2 million volunteers. Within 36 months, we will reach 60% of the world and register 5 million volunteers. External partners: The 1BC partnership network will enable us to grow rapidly AMR, Falck, and Ziqitza the largest American, European, and Asian ambulance companies respectively, have committed to join the platform within 18 months.
