It is a member-based corporation of physicians and allied healthcare employees of Kashmiri foundation in North America. The imaginative and prescient is to provide a platform for those specialists to the community, educate, mentor, and especially to offer lower back to their local Kashmir inside the healthcare sector.
We had been operational for the beyond three years with our regulatory and structural duties met inside the Valley as nicely.
Our most ambitious challenge for 2019 is the EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES Project. For this, we’ve tied up with SAVE Heart Kashmir crew along side our neighborhood companion HELP Foundation. This provider is set to begin to cease of July 2019. We are starting it as a pilot application in Srinagar with two vital care ambulances manned with paramedics/EMT personnel. The control room or the vital hub may be staffed by junior docs to provide acute care en route with triage to the closest available emergency room.
KASHMIR is inaugurating this service at SKICC, Srinagar on July 18, 2019, to be launched by using Atal Dulloo, IAS Financial Commissioner, Health and Medical Education Dept. Along with Dr. Omar Javed Shah, Director SKIMS and different invitees, Principal/ Dean GMC – Dr. Parvaiz Shah, Director Health Services – Dr. Kunzes Dolma and Director General, Youth Services and Sports- Dr. Saleem Ur Rahman.
Emergency Medical Services, EMS, is nonexistent in Kashmir. As of now, there is no strong or best care EMS to be had within the valley. This has a big healthcare effect in Kashmir. There can be a massive postpone in receiving emergency hospital treatment as pre-health center care is missing. As a result, mortality and morbidity go up notably.KASHMIR is desirous of changing the “shipping automobile concept of ambulances” to “lifesaving emergency scientific transportation,” and eager on having a proof-based EMS driven by way of technology and skilled personnel. KASHMIR plans to execute an EMS version to supply excellent ambulance service in Kashmir to begin with in parts of Srinagar town to advantage enjoy and gauge popular reaction. These offerings could be extended to the whole Srinagar district in distinct stages.
HELP and Save Heart Kashmir are our main ground partners. SAVE HEART is a group of young and passionate physicians who need to make an alternate in healthcare shipping in Kashmir and are recognized for using social media to get cardiac care to remote areas. HELP Foundation is a well reputable corporation with a huge body of labor in the nonprofit sector.
The backbone of the EMRS is a well educated clinical and paramedical group of workers. They may be BLS (Basic Life Support), and ACLS (Advanced Life Support).
An EMS telephone range will be made to be had for getting admission to to most of the people. People want to be knowledgeable about the use of this number for emergencies handiest and not everyday healthcare advice.
KASHMIR is well aware of the economic task of such healthcare operation. However, nearly non-existent EMS in Kashmir demands that such provider have to be supplied to Kashmir, and it will contain sacrifice on different fronts. Passionate individuals will make contributions with the aid of donating their time, information, and financial contributions. As of now, EMRS could be funded through KASHMIR and KASHMIR well-wishers.
EMS has gotten the attention of Kashmiris some other place within the world. We have reached to our Kashmiri pals and associates around the sector as correctly to provide assistance for this undertaking.
