Trek Medics: Beacon - SMS-based Emergency Medical Dispatching

Trek Medics developed "Beacon," a text message-based emergency medical dispatching software for communities that cannot afford conventional Emergency Medical Services dispatching technologies. Trek Medics is using $150,000 of DIV funding to expand its 24/7 emergency medical response coverage to 175,000 people in rural parts of the Dominican Republic using Beacon. It is testing several variables, including response times, patient outcomes, and community participation.
