DUBLIN, March 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

A new healthcare app could help solve the problems of India's emergency medical response system by offering users an Uber-like service for ambulances. Low public funding and heavy traffic on badly organized roads has resulted in a slow and at times unresponsive system, but the AMBER Health app plans to counter these issues through use of a service aggregation system. The global personal emergency response system is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% by 2020, according to a report available from Research and Markets, but this growth could be greater if AMBER Health is successful in its aims.

The healthcare sector in India is under constant pressure to accommodate the country's large population. To alleviate this pressure, the AMBER Health app aggregates ambulance supply from government and private hospitals, plus the emergency rooms of said hospitals. Patients are able to request medical response services in an organized manner, while hospitals can dispatch an ambulance and track the progress of incoming patients. In addition, the app offers users a variety of features including appointment scheduling and a healthcare management system. Users can also contact pharmacies through the app.

The global mHealth solutions market will be worth USD 59.15 billion by 2020, as forecast in a industry report, but the success of AMBER Health could influence other countries to adopt the app or introduce alternatives, resulting in a higher market value.

The global health information systems market is set to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% by 2020, as predicted in a healthcare market report. The growth of this market could be far greater if developers continue to build innovative apps like AMBER Health and offer patients and hospitals alike the benefits of efficient and effective healthcare management technology.
