The 5G-enabled ambulances are equipped with high-speed connectivity from Reliance Jio, enabling real-time, two-way audio and video communication. They also feature cameras and smart devices for high-definition footage transmission, along with Advanced Life Support (ALS) systems for critical medical interventions. These ambulances facilitate real-time streaming of patient health data to distant doctors and transmission of vital signs to emergency room dashboards. Additionally, they incorporate ambulance location tracking for efficient dispatch and navigation, as well as remote monitoring capabilities allowing doctors to guide paramedics. 

With faster response times due to real-time data relay and monitoring, the ambulances reduce response times to less than 4 minutes in corporate settings. Patients benefit from real-time clinical assessment and immediate medical intervention during transit, along with remote assistance from doctors, enabling treatment during the commute. Effective use of the 'Golden Hour' and 'Platinum 10 Minutes' for critical care significantly improves survival rates in emergencies like heart attacks and strokes. Moreover, these ambulances enhance healthcare access in rural and remote areas and facilitate seamless data sharing with hospitals to prepare for incoming patients. The higher bandwidth and ultra-low latency of the 5G network ensure efficient data transfer, while integration with corporate wellness programs helps reduce healthcare costs and improve employee health outcomes.
