Health technology startup URAL EMS and Olwel have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to provide an integrated service to patients at home.
With Olwel, one can get an experienced General Practitioner doctor at their home within 30 minutes while Ural EMS provides ambulance services through their app and call centre.
With the integration, signed on July 18, an Olwel doctor can refer a patient to the right hospital if needed and the patient’s family can get a ‘hassle-free’ and ‘cost-effective’ ambulance service to carry the patient, according to a media release from the startup.
Developed by Woadec Ltd, URAL EMS is a location-based mobile app that makes hiring an on-demand ambulance easy.
Using a smartphone, a person can hire an ambulance during an emergency to pick up a patient and take him or her to desired hospitals. Four types of ambulances are in its service portfolio: standard, air conditioned, ICU and freezer.
The rates are standardised, the startup said in the release.
The MoU was signed by Woadec CEO Shahriar Farid and the Olwel Chairman of MM Aftab Hossain.
Woadec Chairman Md Ahsan Z Talukder, Ural EMS Operation Director Bazlay Chowdhury, Olwel CTO Mojahedul Hoque Abul Hasanat, and Olwel COO MWA Farhad were present in the occasion.
