Have you or your loved one ever met with an emergency situation and hoped that your family could be notified so that they could rush to you immediately? myresQR.life is India’s only platform to address such a challenge of emergency care.
What is myresQR?
myresQR.life is India’s only hybrid emergency response communication interface that bridges the gap of communication between an unidentifiable and unconscious emergency victim & his stakeholders like Family & friends, Emergency care providers, Ambulance Services & the Insurance company.
“Approximately 500 people die every day on Indian roads and there is a fair chance of such people losing their identities. Often even the first responders and the emergency doctors have no idea about the identity of the victim,” said Akash Kumar Agarwal, founder of myresQR.
“With over 50,000 families across India trusting myresQR.life for the safety of their loved ones, this is India’s only hybrid emergency response communication interface that saves life in an emergency. We aim to reduce emergency related fatalities and keep people safe.”
Started career at an early age
Bangalore based 46-year-old Akash Kumar Agarwal started his career in his hometown Agra at an age of 9 years when most kids of his age were busy playing in grounds, as an assistant to his entrepreneur mother who was among first few women entrepreneurs in his home town during the mid ’80s.
During his first job as a field sales representative, he witnessed many emergency situations either with himself or with his peers and few of these incidents resulted in the demise of the victim since his information was not available to any stakeholder. This gap in communication between the accident victim and his stakeholders inspired him to find a solution and provide a complete end to end solution for an emergency victim across the globe. This led to the birth of myresQR.
How it started?
In 2016 when myresQR was started, the product and idea were different. It was then used to link the medical records of a person to his/her Aadhaar number which could be accessed by the doctor during treatment and provided relief from carrying all the documents. However, it did not work out well and in 2018, it was pivoted into an emergency response communication interface.
How does myresQR work?
“When the first responder sees the myresQR tag on the helmet or the car of the victim saying emergency, he has to scan the QR code. Multiple communications are triggered within 15 seconds. The relative gets a message informing the location of the victim and the name and contact number of the first responder,” said co-founder Shalini Singh.
“The ambulance is called and if no services are available at the moment, then the first responder would be asked to avail a cab, whose fare would be reimbursed. Information about the nearest hospital would also be made available automatically. The QR code will help the doctor to know the medical history of the patient while the hospital details would also be automatically provided to the patient’s family so that they can rush immediately.”
Importance of myresQR
It helps the first responder to contact the victim’s family, enables the hospital to access his/her medical history, provides cashless treatment in 12,000 hospitals geo-tagged in the platform and ultimately prevents delay in treatment by saving the crucial time after an accident. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, 1.2 lakh people died in road accidents in 2020.
Neither Internet nor smartphone needed
This is the only platform that works with or without smartphone, with or without internet and triggers an SOS to the registered emergency contacts within 15 seconds of submitting the information by the first responders. It is the most pocket friendly priced product that serves all segments of society and its QR function works globally.
