Innovate for the health safety

In France, our medical transport teams were on the front line to help the patients. From this difficult period, a new service was born: mobile teleconsultation units.

On the frontline with patients

In partnership with the Vendée departmental council, Keolis Santé launched an innovative new concept called the Mobile Teleconsultation Unit (UMT). The UMT unit with its specially adapted ambulance, connected hardware and nurse/ambulance crew has been made available to the council’s medical staff to enable people to stay at home. “This initiative has helped reduce demand on hospitals while keeping vulnerable people safe from Covid-19,” says Roland de Barbentane, President of Keolis Santé.

“All across France, our medical transport teams have been playing a key role in carrying patients. As well as responding to the needs of hospital emergency services on a 24/7 basis, they’ve also been called on to support ad hoc transfers by plane or highspeed train by bridging the first and last mile gaps.”
