The News Minute | September 19, 2014 | 08:35 am IST The 108 ambulance service is developing a mobile app that finds the location of the patient and reduces pick up time, states a report by Bangalore Mirror. The app, which will contain the name, age, address and similar other details of a person, is likely to be available for downloads in around a month. The app is said to help in times of any medical emergency, since the ambulance service will not have to call and ask such details, thus not wasting any time. The report states that usually the duration of the first call made to the ambulance services takes around one to three minutes. With this app, that time could be cut down by almost one-and-a-half minutes. The app will be available to accident victims as well as people who have hypertension, cardiac arrest and other diseases along with catering to senior citizens. The app can be downloaded on Android phones free of cost. And the services will later be extended to others as well.
