  • Shall help revolutionize emergency care,  saving thousands of lives with immediate availability  of emergency responders during the Golden Hour , through leveraging technology and training. 
  • As part of “Aster Volunteers” programme Aster DM Healthcare initiates 3,00,000 new BLS training for Volunteers over the next 3 years across India & GCC for widening its current pool of 2,00,000 BLS Trained people 
  • President of India met the Delegates from Aster DM Healthcare along with ministers and MPs for a pre-launch brief of “Aster Emergency App” at the Rashtrapathi Bhavan today 

New Delhi, May 27, 2017:  Unveiling a novel and unique concept, The “Aster Emergency App” was launched on May 25, 2017 at Hotel ITC Maurya, New Delhi today by Padma Shree Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman & Managing Director of Aster MD Healthcare. Envisioning a leap in Emergency Care by combining health and technology, the Aster Emergency App provides a real-time interface between the patient in emergency and a GPS-enabled Aster ‘Responder'. This brings help to reach even before the Ambulance arrives providing “Basic Life Support” (BLS). The first hour after an incident is called the Golden Hour which is the most critical time when intervention will give best results. 

Aster Emergency App is a user-friendly application that navigates you to get access to Basic Life Support help, in case of a medical emergency. The App is the 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 support of the backend control center. The app is also equipped with information on handling some medical emergencies, emergency numbers and other useful tips. Features of the App include - User Registration, Incident Reporting and Request an Ambulance, 

The App also includes a View & Track for real-time status of the incidents by all stake holders. Seamless google maps integration to reach task location. The Aster Emergency App is rolled out in a phased manner starting from today at Calicut in Kerala post the Nation-wide launch at New Delhi. 

Prior to the App's launch on May 25, 2017, a delegation led by Dr Moopen and accompanied by Ministers and MPs, briefed the Honourable President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee regarding the App. The President appreciated the initiative and gave his blessings. 

Dr. Moopen said, “This is a new approach using technology to handle healthcare. Every single day there are innumerable emergency calls/situations that arise in India. It might take an ambulance more than half an hour to reach the patient which is a critical period. With this App, it is possible to provide Basic Life Support guidance during the Golden Hour immediately. My wish is that this App should be functional successfully in the entire country. We look forward to launching this App across India in association with interested healthcare organizations, NGOs and Government Agencies. This is a neutral, not for profit initiative to save lives and we are ready to share the technology and support anyone interested to take this up.”

A live demonstration of the real-time scenario was showcased at ITC Maurya Hotel on 25th May in a media brief function attended
