Imagine you’re at work and you receive a call from one of your relatives exclaiming that your mom was found unconscious in the bathroom. Your family rushes her to the nearest hospital as you sprint out of work almost in tears to meet them there. You arrive at the hospital about an hour later and, upon arrival, you are shocked to hear your mom still has not been seen—no test, no scans, nothing.
You begin to question the efficiency of emergency rooms and start to think: “there’s got to be a better way.” Time passes—seconds become minutes, minutes become hours, and before you know it, you’ve been waiting more than 8; and you’re not alone. The waiting area is full of faces—other walk-ins waiting to be seen.
After a frustratingly long wait, your mom decides it’s time to go home. “I am fine,” she asserts. But is she?
Luckily, our founder’s mom survived the experience and has recovered. But this experience was unacceptable. And it turns out this case was not unique to our location. It was then that our founder decided it was time to create a solution that allows everyone to prepare for and better their treatment during medical emergencies.
And thus, Urgently was born!
