Mobile Medical Unit

Overview

Mobile Medical Unit is an innovative health service facility to provide healthcare for employees residing in the remote locations and in habitations of rural areas which are considerably away from the hospitals. These MMUs will cover remote locations based on the pre-defined schedules.

This program mainly provides services to the employees of remote GAIL offices/sites that through a well-equipped mobile medical vehicle comprising of medical equipment along with well-trained medical personnel. Each MMU comprises of 6 personnel, which include one driver, three trained nurses / lab technicians, one data entry operator / attendant and one driver.

The major constituents of this solution are:

  • Mobile Vans
  • Healthcare professionals on-board the vehicle
  • Diagnostic Equipment on-board the vehiclem
  • IT HW on-board the vehicle-laptops etc
  • Back-end Data-center-application servers, patient DB etc.
Process

Patients/Employees of remote offices/sites will get treated by these MMUs at their office locations along with their families - diagnosis and treatment. Each MMU will be equipped with basic laboratory equipment, for blood analysis and X-Ray. This MMU will perform basic investigations of the patients and records the patient visit history and other health details. These details will be integrated to the datacenter, maintained by HealthNet Global. In case the patients require additional treatment, they would be referred to the nearest community, or district hospitals for advanced investigations, diagnosis and treatment.

The treatment process will be initiated by capturing the demographic details of the patient through the registration process. Registered patients will be issued an e-Health card through which they can avail repetitive services from the MMU.

The lab services (Hemoglobin, urine for sugar, albumin, X-Ray) will be conducted at the MMU counter, while for other tests, doctor would prescribe lab tests at the district hospitals. The unit will have facilities to handle chronic diseases, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, skin disease, diabetes and malaria.

The data at each counter would be captured manually in separate registers and would be entered in to system by using the application interface at the end of the day and by using the connectivity manager, the data will be uploaded to the data center. The administrator and planner application (Scheduler) will map the remote sites/offices to be visited. The model could be hub-and-spoke where a major GAIL hospital of Apollo could be the hub and the remote sites/offices of GAILs are the spokes.

The System would comprise of front end interface for capturing the basic details of the patient. This system enables the administrator to generate the customized reports to check the reports daily so that he can track all the information regarding the respective reports. Some salient features of this service are:
1. Patient registration application
2. Lab sample tracking application at MMU
3. Drug distribution application in MMU
4. Data synchronization application
5. Centralized database for patient, drugs and lab details
6. Van scheduler and Fleet Management
7. Reports

Automated Vehicle Location Tracking (AVLT):

This application enables an agent to track the movement of ambulances in real-time. The ambulances, in which AVLT (Automated Vehicle Location Tracking) is installed, are displayed onto the screens. Once the GPS starts functioning, the latest position of the ambulance is displayed. The application shows all the vehicles in a single window.

  • Track the ambulance movement in real-time.
  • Helps to Find the nearest available ambulance
Soft phone and Soft SMS:

Whenever the agent wishes to initiate conference, transfer a call, put call on hold / mute, send a SMS; the agent can perform the operations without using the physical phone. This feature is provided as functionality in the core applications which serve as a handy tool to the user and makes the process fast and uncomplicated.

  • A GIS web interface will be provided for real time tracking of all the ambulances. Vehicle location data is received by the application and this information is plotted on to the map. (Schedule IV-2.1)
  • Query and search tools will be provided to search ambulances and routes taken by a specific ambulance. (Schedule IV-2.1)
  • The system is designed to prevent loss of ambulance data in the event of failure of equipment or communication network. (Schedule IV-2.7)
  • The system will provide time and day, LAT, LONG, direction, speed and accurate distance traveled indication etc. (Schedule IV-2.8)
