Emergency Helpline for Patients - Doctor on Call & Ambulance Services

We, Indians, have started evolving in such a way that we are embracing the Digital Revolution; almost every body has a cell phone for communication.
There are scenarios in life, wherein people are seen falling ill during the wee hours, or searching for the best guidance - hospitals or doctors at some stage of life, due to certain diseases.
Let me explain on case to case basis:
A middle class nuclear family in India having only 2 or 3 members, suddenly finds that the sole bread earner is having spasms and heart related ailments at 1am in the night. The man's wife bangs every door and wakes up neighbors and somehow manage to get a cab or an auto to take the patient to the hospital. This takes time- at least half an hour to 45 mins gets wasted, to gather people who can really help!
In another case, an individual is in a state of emergency in some Tehsil - quite far off from a good health care center. May be the patient needs immediate oxygen supply and some drugs, but there are no doctors to call! What we find around are quacks- good for nothing!
There are 2-member families in India too- a single mother and a child or say an elderly couple or two brothers, etc; the permutations and combinations may be many, but when it comes to states of emergency, our minds don't work much as we are panicky.
There can be many such instances - pertaining to labour pains requiring immediate attention, or an accident - any such medical emergencies!!
If you consider case wise or in general, and we have a 24/7 Helpline, where people can reach out to some executive, almost without delay, who can help the patient's aide or family with the right contacts for doctors or ambulances and get an immediate appointment fixed at some good health care centre, nursing homes, or hospitals and get an ambulance reaching the place in 5-10 mins, we might just have enough causes to thank the government for saving some lives.
Be it in films or real life, when we ultimately reach a hospital's emergency ward with a patient, the monologue from the nursing staff often is " You are late in bringing your patient here; we are sorry, we could not save the patient'.
Request support to change this notion and save lives! This might also create jobs pan-India!!
