Indigenous Mobile Hospital (BHISHM) Rolls into Ayodhya, Paving the Way for Enhanced Healthcare Access

In preparation for the upcoming ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony in Ayodhya, two revolutionary mobile hospitals, part of the Arogya Maitri Disaster Management Cube-BHISHM initiative, have been strategically deployed. Scheduled for January 22, 2024, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Ayodhya is expected to draw a crowd of 8,000 guests. The Cube-BHISHM units, integral components of the broader “Project BHISHM” – Bharat Health Initiative for Sahyog, Hita, and Maitri, are geared towards reinforcing medical preparedness and response capabilities.

These cubes, designed to treat up to 200 casualties, emphasize swift response and comprehensive care during emergencies. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, the Aid Cube integrates Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data analytics to enhance coordination, real-time monitoring, and efficient management of medical services in the field.

Comprising 72 easily transportable components, the entire unit can be conveniently carried by hand, cycle, or even drone, providing unparalleled flexibility. The Aid Cube’s remarkable deployment speed of just 12 minutes in mass casualty incidents (MCIs) is crucial, bridging the time gap from primary care to definitive care and potentially saving lives during the critical initial moments of emergencies.

Designed to withstand various emergency scenarios, the cubes are robust, waterproof, and lightweight, adaptable to different configurations. Whether deployed via airdrop or ground transportation, the Cube ensures an immediate and effective response capability.

A standout feature of the Cube is its advanced medical equipment, RFID-tagged for efficient repacking and redeployment. The BHISHM software system, integrated into a provided tablet, enables operators to locate items quickly, monitor their usage and expiry, and ensure readiness for subsequent deployments. This sophisticated mobile hospital initiative underscores a commitment to cutting-edge technology in disaster management, reinforcing India’s ability to respond swiftly and effectively to medical emergencies.
