Fast medical help

July 2012 News

National emergency medical care service ER24 has launched a new service called IDMe that connects you to fast medical help via your cellphones in the event of an emergency. The service is powered by technology from Cellfind, a subsidiary of Blue Label Telecoms.

IDMe is your guardian and helper in any emergency. It turns your cellphone into a panic button that immediately links you to ER24’s Contact Centre when you hit a speed dial number.

Your location will be traced by means of triangulation using cellular towers. An operator will also phone you immediately to find out what assistance you need so that the authorities and necessary help can be dispatched to your location. ER24 will save you valuable time by dispatching the closest and most appropriate emergency resource, providing life-saving treatment, and transporting you to the nearest most suitable medical facility.

Says ER24 spokesperson Werner Vermaak: “The incidence of trauma in South Africa has increased dramatically in recent years. It is a sad fact that emergencies such as road accidents and violent crime can strike at any time.”
