Multi-speciality healthcare provider Apollo BGS Hospitals, Mysuru, in a collaboration with a health technology startup LifeSigns, has launched a 5G ambulance to transform emergency medical services in rural India.
Claimed to be first-of-its-kind intelligent ambulance, this life saving vehicle is 5G connected and equipped with latest technology and comprehensive medical facilities.
With the deployment of LifeSign’s artificial intelligence-powered remote patient monitoring technology, the ambulance vehicle will be able to monitor critical care patients in transit and can even convert into a smart clinic when required at remote rural locations of India.
This technology monitors patients and streams round-the-clock patient data to physicians and healthcare professionals irrespective of whether the patient is at home, in the ambulance or at the hospital.
The deployment of the vehicle with monitoring solution will cater to the villages near to Mysuru city.
The 5G emergency ambulances will be located at villages and link them to the central hub at Apollo BGS Hospitals in Mysuru.

Apollo Hospitals Regional CEO for Karnataka region Dr Manish Mattoo said: “As a leader in healthcare innovation, Apollo is proud to introduce the Apollo 5G Ambulance, a ground breaking solution that harnesses the power of 5G technology to transform emergency medical services.
“This cutting-edge ambulance represents a significant step towards the future of healthcare, where connectivity and advanced technologies converge to provide the highest level of care to those in need.
“Instead of relying solely on pre-hospital management, we have recognised the importance of reaching patients early for timely care. That’s why we introduced the 5G-connected ambulance, which serves as a mobile hospital.”
LifeSigns founder and CEO Hari Subramaniam said: “We are thrilled to be at the forefront of digital healthcare innovation in India. Our commitment to providing world-class care to all extends beyond the hospital walls.
“Through this comprehensive digital transformation initiative, we aim to bridge the gap between urban and rural healthcare, ensure real-time patient monitoring, and offer seamless connected care in ambulance, in hospital and at home. This is a significant step towards our vision of a healthier and happier India.”
In August, Apollo announced the expansion of its connected care programme, Apollo Connect, across India.
