Mobile Medical Units

We propose an incredible alternative to medical care as we know it. We want Mobile Medical Units in every city. Each one will visit neighborhoods daily, reaching people in need before their health worsens. Currently, much of the excessive billing in Medicine can be attributed to the hidden costs of free emergency health care. If we eliminate this drain on our resources we will begin to lower medical costs. We want Mobile Medical Units in every city, visiting neighborhoods daily, reaching people in need.

Mobile Medical Unit Vision
Step up on the platform at the back of our Mobile Medical Unit. Your weight will be taken on the scale you are standing on while you insert your left arm into the blood pressure meter. Place your fingers on the scanner where the machine scans your fingerprints and takes a small pinprick of blood for analysis. You will receive a printout of this analysis and you can have the results emailed to your doctor. Move inside the vehicle where you will meet with a medical technician who will help you understand your diagnosis and provide you with immediate relief. The technician can instantly communicate with the medical doctor who oversees this process remotely. If prescriptions are needed, the other side of the vehicle serves as an on-board automated pharmacy.

Mobile Medical Unit Project

America is currently in a health care crisis. Millions of uninsured and under-insured people do not go to a doctor until it's too late. Then, the costs of emergency care increase dramatically. Insured people have to pay more to offset the costs of people who cannot pay. With rising costs of emergency care, it is imperative that we alleviate this strain on our health care system. Our proposal for designing Mobile Medical Units (MMUs) will make helping all people possible.

We have a plan to provide more efficient health care services to a broad range of people. Our plan is to design Mobile Medical Units that can be built in a uniform way and deployed throughout municipalities around the nation. These units would have onboard diagnostic equipment for blood pressure and blood chemistry, as well as a pharmacy. We envision these units being staffed by a medical technician onsite with wireless satellite feeds to a cooperating doctor.

We seek to unite medical vendors and health care system providers to create a mobile unit with onboard diagnostic capabilities. The MMU will work off a solar grid and other renewable energy forms with battery backup. The pharmacy will require security safeguards and a variety of other integrated systems. The components of the system will be networked together to insure safe and secure distribution of medicine.

Mobile Medical Units will revolutionize how medical service is administered. The main objective of MMUs will be to provide preventative health care, medicine, and nutritional advice. This is vital for people who do not have a primary care doctor. Our units will act as a non-critical treatment facility or serve to triage patients during emergencies. Medical care will be easily accessible as the units rotate through communities.

We will not compete with the private health care industry. Mobile Medical Units will augment the private medical care system. We will work with the current medical community to implement our strategy. Patients can be referred to hospitals and doctors after their initial consultation. Not only will MMUs help the health-care industry, but they can generate profits as well.

The immediate financial benefit of MMUs will be to alleviate strain on our existing emergency care facilities in the U.S., thereby lowering health care costs. Mobile Medical Units will seek non-profit dollars in support of this project as well as Medicaid and Medicare supplemental payments for qualifying individuals. This plan will offer ongoing revenue streams from public and corporate sponsorship. Immediate profit can be attained by selling franchises to Municipalities, Corporations and Non-Profit Agencies.

Mobile Medical Units can also be used by Corporations for In-House preventative health care. This will ease the burden of health care costs that is currently hindering many large corporations. We will lease the individual units to corporations on a multi-phase budget plan that will include production costs, employee training, utilization testing, and final implementation.

The first phase will involve extensive research, planning and development. During this time, we will develop the designs and components needed to assemble the prototype MMU.

See below for a breakdown of the components involved in the initial phase:

* Research on Bio-Tech Vendors
* Research Pharmacy Equipment Providers
* Research Immuno-Hematology Applications
* Electronic and Computer System Design and Integration
* Collaboration and Networking: Organizing vendors and providers
* Human Resource Design and Training of technicians
* Logistics support and Security Consultations
* CADCAM design of the Prototype Mobile Medical Unit.
* Manufacturing Location Analysis for Low Cost Production
* Marketing Strategy: Promotional Print and Video

This will complete the initial phase of the MMU Project, finalizing the plans and designs for our prototype MMU. Whenever possible, we will utilize the service of academic institutions and corporations. This comprehensive approach will lead to an integrated system design. We will strive for maximum efficiency to ensure the long-term viability of the MMU project.

Ultimately, Mobile Medical Units will be located in cities and townships throughout the United States. When fully deployed, the MMU project will act as a "safety net" for our health care system. MMUs with be built for durability and practical application in almost any urban environment. We aim to serve all people with preventative medicine and improve the quality of their lives. .

Mobile Medical Units can alleviate the strain on our trauma care units. Emergency medical technicians can be trained to help people throughout cities to get preventative medicine and basic screening for disease. If implemented over a wide area and rotated frequently, these Mobile Treatment Vehicles will serve more people than any other provider in the country. This will not alter the existing privatized health care system.

For many people without Healthcare Insurance, there is no safety net. The system that IS working can be fortified to assist those people. The Veteran's Administration oversees a full service staff that currently helps qualifying veteran's throughout America. We will seek to expand and strengthen the VA's abilities to help relatives of Veterans. This will provide a temporary support mechanism while the country transitions to more affordable Health Care. The economics of Health Care will begin to balance with the help of the VA and Mobile Medical Care Units.
