TLDR:

  • Magen David Adom (MDA), Israel’s national emergency medical service, showcased its advanced technology and capabilities at an international conference in Berlin.
  • MDA’s state-of-the-art systems, including artificial intelligence capabilities, enabled fast response times and real-time video communication with emergency staff.
  • The organization’s dispatch technology, developed in-house, saved valuable time and has been adopted by other organizations both in and outside of Israel.
  • MDA paramedic Menachem Blumenthal shared his experiences treating patients during the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas.

Magen David Adom (MDA), Israel’s national emergency medical service, recently showcased its advanced technology and capabilities at an international conference in Berlin. The organization’s Information Systems Director, Ido Rosenblatt, and paramedic Menachem Blumenthal discussed MDA’s lifesaving activities during the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas. Rosenblatt highlighted how MDA deployed state-of-the-art systems with artificial intelligence capabilities to speed up response times and enable real-time video communication with emergency staff at its call center.

MDA’s technology proved especially valuable in locating and providing assistance to the injured in areas that were difficult to reach. For example, during a music festival in Re’im, MDA’s in-house system helped locate wounded individuals and dispatch ambulances. The organization’s advanced dispatch technology, developed by MDA’s own developers, has been adopted by the Israel Fire and Rescue Department and shared with organizations outside of Israel.

During the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas, MDA teams served as the first responders at many routine and emergency events. Paramedic Menachem Blumenthal, who has worked as a paramedic for 20 years, shared his experiences treating patients in a nearby synagogue due to the presence of terrorists in the area. He highlighted how the synagogue, which would usually be a place of celebration and prayer, became an operating room for treating wounded patients.

Since the beginning of the conflict, four MDA workers have been murdered, two have been kidnapped, and MDA teams have been injured while on their way to treat the wounded. However, MDA’s advanced technology and dedication to saving lives have played a crucial role in responding to the tens of thousands of calls received during this challenging time.
