Crowdsourcing medical emergency system using Internet of things in Bangladesh perspective
MetadataShow full item record
Bangladesh is a developing country with huge population in this small territory. In population census 2011, we knew that our 7.48% populations are aged above 60 years of age. Also most of our people are unaware of the system that provide real and practical health care provided by government and non-government care givers at the remote areas, we propose a system that will make easy for them to use and get the medical help everywhere in our country timely. In this modern era many things are going to be model with the latest technologies achieved. By this time most of us have mobile/cell phones under operation. So if we can establish a system that the mobile phone may be the e ective tool to rescue people in medical emergencies will be very helpful in countries like ours as well as the under developing countries. The aim of this research work is to design a medical emergency system by leveraging the concept of crowd sourcing that will be able to (1) Monitor and detect a medical emergency situation and (2) Minimize the emergency response time and operational cost. This proposed `Neighbour Assisted Medical Emergency System (NAMES)' will use the voluntary participation of the neighbours. In this system during an emergency situation, it will connect the cloud and it will search for the nearest neighbour to connect for helps and solutions. Then cloud will give the details to neighbour. After accepting the request, the neighbour will be equipped with the all necessary documents shortest possible time limit. According to decision of the neighbour, the pharmacy or ambulance will be contacted through neighbour. If ambulance required it will connect to the GPS for transportation and by the ambulance the patient has to reach to the hospital for treatment. This emergency describes by rapid response system should improve the medical emergency needs as a whole. There must be some main components (i) Event detection and response triggering (ii) Crisis response (iii) Process improvement through feedback and (iv) Governance and administration. Based on all these components, it is essential for a neighbour to get the information about the subscribers sooner and be responsible to give the support to the subscribers which will de nitely help the human mankind ultimately.
