“A cab takes less than five minutes to arrive but an ambulance takes over 40 minutes! At Ambee, we are trying to change this and solve the problems in healthcare transportation,” said Rohit Kumar, Co-founder, Ambee.
The startup came into existence in March 2016 with a vision to build a network of quality hospital and private ambulances where users can request for the nearest ambulance that meets their requirements.
Ambulance owners (hospitals and private fleet owners) are provided with the technology for tracking and managing their ambulances.
In the long run, they are aiming to focus on improving service standards by enabling ambulance owners in procuring better equipment, training their staff, and connecting ambulances to hospital emergency rooms.
Jaimon Jose, Co-founder, Ambee, told YourStory, “Our biggest learnings have been around the various challenges that exist in this space, from lack of technology in tracking ambulances to the prevailing incentives that exist in the market. We realised that the first problem we needed to solve was that of empowering ambulance owners, be it hospitals or private owners, with technology. We went into pilot with a couple of hospitals in Hyderabad using our MVP. Based on this experience and learnings from the market trying to build a network of vehicles, we started focusing on enhancing our partner technology which could thoroughly support the needs of hospitals and ambulance owners.”
