Each year, millions of non-emergency calls are made to 911 that decrease ambulance availability, overcrowd EDs, and drive billions in excess costs. MD Ally is building a 911-integrated telehealth platform that allows emergency dispatchers and first responders to connect callers with non-life-threatening medical concerns to virtual care. We are on a mission to drive greater connectivity between 911 and the broader digital healthcare ecosystem.
