AMBULANCE DISPATCH SYSTEM (ADS)

INTRODUCTION
The system is designed to implement a solution to an application domain which consists of an ambulance dispatch system. This system facilitates interaction with the actors, such as a caller, a dispatcher that handles the call and dispatches ambulances and the ambulance drivers. The system aims at reducing response times of ambulances, improving efficiency of operations of ambulance and hospital services and providing callers an effective one-stop solution for receiving medical treatment from their pickup point to their destination.

Existing scenario for ambulance dispatch
Currently there is no software architecture for the ambulance dispatch system. The current system is a phone a paper based system that is outdated and unorganized. When the dispatcher receives an emergency call s/he then radios to an ambulance to see if they are available to take the emergency. If they are not available then s/he must continue to track down an ambulance that is available. Once finding an available ambulance the dispatcher then communicates to the EMT the location of the emergency and status of the injured parties. This information is recorded by hand by the non-driving EMT. Once finished at the scene the EMT must then radio near by hospitals to ensure that the hospital can accommodate their patient. Once dropping the patient off at the hospital, the EMT must then notify the dispatcher of the final details of the patient's condition and other pertinent information about the case. The dispatcher records this information by hand and then files the necessary paperwork. This current system leaves a paper trail that is difficult to follow later if necessary. In addition, precious time is lost as the dispatcher attempts to locate available ambulances and hospitals. The lost time could ultimately be the difference between life and death for the patients.

Ambulance Dispatch System
Our new software architecture will address these issues by allowing the dispatcher to always have available a real time list of available ambulances and hospitals. The ambulance Dispatch system shall ensure that ambulances are dispatched quickly and efficiently in-order to reduce the costs for the ambulance providers and increase their ability to save...
