How does your innovation work?

In a city like Hanoi where traffic is a critical problem, emergency ambulance service can hardly reach patients within 30 or 45 minutes after the stress call is made. By then, the chance to provide life-saving medication or procedures significantly decreases. The introduction of a medical first responder program would improve response times and could significantly increase medial emergency survival rates as well as lower the costs of medical care for the patient.
