Mediwave, the digital healthcare arm of Wavenet, headquartered in Singapore, partners with 1990 Suwa Seriya, Sri Lanka's national pre-hospital emergency ambulance service, to elevate life-enhancing emergency care through Mixed Reality and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Together, a fully connected Ambulance, powered by Mediwave's integrated Emergency Response Suite was launched in Sri Lanka.
Mediwave's Emergency Response Suite automates and enhances the efficiency of the emergency healthcare ecosystem by digitizing critical processes, ensuring swift response times, while delivering specialised care remotely along with Microsoft HoloLens. With latest communication equipment, Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) can remotely connect with the physician at the Emergency Command and Control Centre (ECCC), monitor vital signs, and provide specialized care before reaching the hospital, enhancing care during the golden hour of medical emergencies.
1990 Suwa Seriya boasts of an response time of 11 minutes and 38 seconds for medical emergencies, surpassing some developed countries. Emergency service personnel undergo training using AR simulations and are equipped with information to handle special emergencies. Moreover, the system employs a speech-to-text, AI-powered transcriber by Mediwave, to digitize Electronic Patient Care Records (ePCR), eliminating delays in Emergency Treatment Units and minimizing human error.
This initiative marks a paradigm shift in pre-hospital emergency management and set a precedent for effective emergency response systems, showcasing the transformative potential of AI and Mixed Reality on a global scale.
