London’s Air Ambulance Dispatch App was awarded Ultimate App at the Techies, run by Techworld. Following the win, we got in touch with the publication to see if they’d be interested in speaking to London’s Air Ambulance, a year after the app was announced.
Juan Pablo Luchetti, Mubaloo’s consultancy director, and Jason Morris, advanced trauma paramedic at London’s Air Ambulance both spoke with Techworld about the app, how it was created and the impact it has had.
In the article, Morris explained the impact of the app, citing a story of responding to a call following a road traffic accident, “Paramedics have something of a sixth sense when it comes to these things and I believed that the patient wasn’t breathing. So I dispatched the aircraft, and now I only have to press a button, so I was able to go back to the caller and instruct them to pull the patient out of the vehicle and clear the airway and maintain that patient.
“In the old days we would have not been able to free up the line and as a paramedic we wouldn’t be able to give that advice as quickly.” It’s not often that enterprise apps can be cited in cases of life and death.
