Delight as AeroMedical win Aviation Innovation Award
Congratulations to our client who have picked up an Aviation Innovation Award from the Aviation Industry Awards for AeroMedical, the Locateme 112 system.
The Locateme 112 system is a life-saving system delivered through the HealthAtlas AeroMedical application developed by the Health Intelligence Unit of the HSE and OpenApp.
Launched in 2014, the Aviation Industry Awards are a benchmark for excellence for those demonstrating best practice and innovation in the aviation sector in Ireland. We’re delighted for the HSE and the AeroMedical team.
AeroMedical's Locateme 112 system was featured on the RTE news and numerous press mentions for its ability to help the emergency services save lives:
AeroMedical works like this: The casualty calls 999 and if they can’t give their location, they are sent a text message. In it is an internet link, which which clicked, activates the satellite global positioning chip on the phone sending the co-ordinates back to the emergency control centre.
What the Locateme 112 service does is give the casualty time – the chance to get to the hospital within the golden hour which, very often, can be the difference between life and death.
After successful trials, the system is now in use in HSE’s National Ambulance Control Centre in Tullamore.
