The 'Aster Emergency' app, launched by Aster DM Healthcare, envisions a leap in emergency care by combining health and technology and offers a real-time interface between the patient in emergency and a GPS-enabled Aster 'responder'.
The objective is to provide help even before the ambulance arrives to give the basic life support (BLS).
The first hour after an incident is called the "Golden Hour" which is the most critical time when an intervention will give best results.
It will act as a link between the patient, the responder, the ambulance and ultimately the hospital.
At the press of an icon, the trained certified responder, who can deal with emergencies at the ground level can be accessed by a support of the backend control centre.
