MUrgency selected for Web Summit 2015 Beta Pitch
Press Release: Oct 23, 2015 — San Francisco | Dubai | Mumbai
MUrgency is excited to announce that it has been selected for the Web Summit 2015 Beta Pitch. MUrgency’s mission is to make emergency response available to anyone, anytime, anywhere with just one tap on a mobile phone or through auto alerts from wearables and sensors.
According to WHO estimates, more people die from lack of timely care than from AIDS, TB and malaria combined. Currently, 6.25 billion people worldwide (90% of world population) lack access to a reliable emergency response system in case of emergency. Even the 0.75 billion people (10% of world population) who can obtain reliable response have to deal with enormous expenses and delays. MUrgency is committed to solving this problem connecting those who need urgent care with the nearest doctor, nurse paramedic, clinic or hospital.
“Leaders and entrepreneurs are welcoming MUrgency — One Global Emergency Response Network as an initiative that will help fix the lack of emergency medical response infrastructure in developing countries and the unaffordable system in the developed world” — Shaffi Mather, Founder and CEO, MUrgency.
MUrgency is building MUrgencyNetwork, the largest emergency first responder network on earth; MUrgency has already enrolled 1500+ first responders across Punjab, India and 800+ first responders in Dubai, UAE. MUrgencyNetwork and App will be launched in Punjab, India end Nov 2015 to be followed in Dubai, UAE in first quarter 2016.
MUrgency is a mobile app which connects people who need urgent medical help with credentialed doctors, nurses, EMTs and paramedics, nearest to them with the mission to make one touch or auto alert emergency response available to anyone, anytime, anywhere. MUrgency is being launched with membership in BCtA @ UNDP (Business Call to Action at the United Nations Development Program), in academic partnership with Stanford Change Labs, Harvard Asia Center and MIT Global Health, and as an initiative of the World Economic Forum’s Forum of Young Global Leaders Community.
