The time for a call from a person who called "103" was reduced seven times to a free team of emergency medical care in the Odessa region. This became possible thanks to the work of the Unified Operational Dispatch Service. This was announced by the chairman of the Odessa regional state administration Maxim Stepanov during the visit to the UODS of the Prime Minister Volodymyr Groisman.

"We significantly reduced the time in the Odessa region from calling the" 103 "until it was received by a free-to-air brigade that is closest to the scene. Automation of dispatching processes allowed to reduce this time seven times! They handle a call to "103" in the control room of the Odessa region for one minute. Also, the Service identifies the shortest route for the medical team so that they can quickly arrive at the place of call and help the sick person. All this in a complex, in the literal sense, saves life ", - emphasized Maxim Stepanov.

Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman during a visit to the Odessa Regional State Social Insurance Institution, stressed that next year in Ukraine, the development of an emergency medical house will be prioritized.

"We plan next year to give priority to emergency medicine: technical re-equipment, increase of salaries of employees. We will take basic areas and begin to retrain people, taking into account new knowledge. Of course, we will technically re-equip cars. And in the plan there will be such control systems ", - stressed Volodymyr Groisman, commenting on the experience of the Odessa region.

It should be noted that every day, UODS accepts up to three thousand calls "103". The final stage of every fifth call is the hospitalization of the patient to the hospital. In general, the service manages 175 brigades of emergency medical care. Also on the basis of the Service is a telemedicine room. Thus, all automobile brigades of the "fast" region are equipped with electrocardiographs with telemetry devices. Directly on the call of physicians, they can make an electrocardiogram, send online results online and get advice from a highly qualified doctor of the UODS telemedicine center. Thus, up to 150 such consultations are provided every day in the Odessa region.

Recall that on March 21, the chairman of the Odessa Regional State Administration Maxim Stepanov began work of the Unified Operational Dispatch Service. Within three months after its launch, all regions of the region were connected to the single telephone number "103". This service greatly reduces the time the physician brigade arrives to the patient by automating call reception, electronic control of all phases of emergency care, and optimizing resource management. The brigade escort manager determines the "fast" car nearest to the place of call, chooses medical or paramedic care (depending on the difficulty of the call) and directs its shortest path to the patient.
