Time response (the time the patient dials 911 to the time any medical assistance reaches the site) is an important aspect of emergency medical care. With the rapid growth in population all around the world, emergency medical assistance needs to be at its best to be able to serve the ever demanding society. With early care and pre-hospital in- ambulance treatment, many lives can be saved. A thorough analysis was conducted on the EMS systems and time response data in the US and the UK. Possible technological solutions and advances were considered, analysed, and recommended for ameliorating time response. Virtual implementations proved to be successful. The solutions were again researched for viability and improvements in the United States, especially in Massachusetts.
