BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN LABOR AND DELIVERY
Beacon ensures every childbirth is attended
Deliver Emergency Care Anywhere
Beacon is a text message-based emergency dispatching platform for emergency responders and agencies that need better communications.
Designed by Trek Medics International, Beacon makes emergency dispatching possible anywhere there’s a mobile phone signal by relaying requests for emergency assistance as text messages to the nearest trained responders — with or without internet on any mobile phone. Beacon automates the dispatching process by guiding the nearest available emergency care providers to quickly locate, treat, and transport emergency victims to healthcare facilities.
Beacon assists maternal and child healthcare providers to mitigate the three delays:
1. DELAYS IN DECIDING TO SEEK CARE
Beacon allows communities to launch and sustain local response networks to report imminent childbirth and other obstetric emergencies.
2. DELAYS IN ACCESSING TRANSPORT
Beacon allows any type of transport to be dispatched by sending text messages to coordinate resources, helping women find and access transport to a healthcare facility when minutes count.
3. DELAYS IN RECEIVING ADEQUATE CARE
Beacon can coordinate midwives or trained birth attendants to bring quality care to the patient when transport to a facility is unavailable
