Abstract
Emergency Medical Services operations in Ghana are posing a challenge to the health sector in Ghana. Many people do not have access to emergency response services, let alone good amenities to secure their good health. Unfortunately, there is no digital application in Ghana that will allow people to request emergency response services to make life easier. LAMBER is an emergency medical service software application that has three main applications for patients, clinics, and paramedics. The system offers two major services namely ambulance requests and First-Aid guides for potential patients. The system will allow patients to create requests and link them to the nearest ambulances based on their location. The patients are given the luxury to choose their ambulances and can send a general message to all available ambulances in case of any unforeseen emergencies. Future work includes developing an AI-powered first aid guide.
