Problem

The high emergency mortality and morbidity rates and its associated costs are not only a socio-economic burden for many African countries but a bottleneck to realization of Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2063. According to Uganda's Ministry of Health, despite high emergency tolls, less than 7% of patients arrive at health facilities by ambulance. This has been attributed to the absence of a formal Emergency Medical Service system (EMS).

Solution

NAS, an on-demand emergency services response, a component of an all-in-one app, Ogaget has been developed to assist with fastest access to emergency medical transport and immediate care that aligns with the budget of a patient. This platform addresses the current state of inac-cessibility to emergency medical care due to lack of coordination, low capacity, unprofessionalism and inadequate technical infrastructure in most African emerging countries.

Target Beneficiaries

The system is aimed at road accident victims, disaster victims, mothers who die while giving birth, those with chronic illness

Mission and Vision

Our mission is to be fastest marketplace for emergency services call and dispatch in Africa. Our vision is to be the preferred point of care for emergency care in Africa

Competitive Advantage

Willingness by government to partner with by on boarding all public ambulances. Integration of other verticals which makes it an all-in-one app for economies of scale and quick and wider visibility. Collaboration with Emergency Medicine Uganda for skills and professional development. Timing is ideal since no such professional emergency system exist. Incorporation of Police and Services makes it 360 degree emergency response system and a must have. The referral feature enables a user to recommend the app to others and this helps to increase customer acquisition.

Planned Goals and Milestones

We need to setup call center, recruit and pay staff, conclude development of key missing features and verticals, on-board ambulances and care providers, brand, promote, advertise and launch. We also need to establish physical presence and office.
