Frequently Asked Questions
What is mobile medical?
Mobile medical units are utilized to offer an array of medical services from any location. In some cases, mobile medical vehicles operate in conjunction with an emergency response team. In other situations, they are utilized by medical businesses who are hoping to expand without investing in a new physical location. Additionally, mobile medical is often utilized to offer medical services to remote communities.
Not only are mobile medical units utilized for a vast array of purpose built applications, they are also utilized across many specialties and disciplines. From dentistry to routine healthcare to veterinary work, mobile clinics are a critical resource for medical communities. Due to the large scope of use, most mobile medical units are custom built to ensure the vehicle will meet the specific needs of the team utilizing it.
How are mobile vehicles used in healthcare?
The healthcare sector utilizes mobile vehicles in a variety of ways. In many cases, a mobile unit allows healthcare providers to offer services in areas that would otherwise be difficult to access. For example, small rural towns that cannot afford to build a complete hospital often suffer from a lack of preventative healthcare options. A mobile unit can be driven from small community to small community, performing critical screenings.
Additionally, Medical Outreach Programs have turned to mobile units to provide services in underdeveloped areas, as well as underserved populations, that require medical attention and awareness. For example, many mammograms are now performed through mobile clinics that are offered in convenient locations, such as during a health fair at a corporate office.
Finally, mobile units are often utilized in emergency response situations.
These are just a few of the many ways the healthcare industry has adopted mobile vehicles into their function.
