India’s ambulance market has hitherto been dominated by local players who take 45+ minutes to reach the patient and, operating on a pay-for-play model, end up coercing patients to go to particular hospitals. Eyeing the need to address these concerns, StanPlus is expanding its presence to a major city such as Bangalore.
Through its Red Ambulance platform, StanPlus leverages technology to offer premium quality medical response to patients. An independent and democratic company, StanPlus has reduced the response time for ambulances to 14 minutes with its call-to-wheel time resting firmly at an impressive 2 minutes. Bringing these exceptional services to Bangalore, StanPlus will deploy 100+ vehicles across the entire city.
To make deep inroads within its new market, the company has tied up with prominent hospitals such as Sakra World Hospital, Columbia Asia Hospital, Ramaiah Memorial Hospital, and Fortis Hospital, among others. Through the Red Ambulance platform, these hospitals have already outsourced their ambulance services to StanPlus.
Furthermore, the platform is looking at strategic tie-ups with ancillary companies such as MyGate, Mfine, and and mobility platforms such as Yulu, Rapido and Bounce to enable emergency services to their patrons. Fortune 500 companies rely on RedAssist Platform to enable on-demand ambulance & emergency management service. StanPlus currently manages emergency management for over 1Mn employees in India.
Speaking on the launch, Prabhdeep Singh, CEO & Founder – StanPlus, said, “Seeing the massive response to Red Ambulance in Hyderabad, our foray into the Bangalore market was the next natural progression. We are looking forward to bringing our high-quality, reliable services to the people of Bangalore and bolstering patient experience through numerous strategic partnerships and highly competitive price points. We identify Bangalore as a key market for our growth trajectory, and are geared up to become the de facto ambulance service company in the city.”
