StanPlus aims to achieve the core pillars of response technologies during emergencies: access, triage, destination selection, and vital sharing. The Hyderabad-based startup has partnered with 50+ hospitals and 70+ enterprises and is looking to expand to 15+ cities in India by the end of this year, a step towards providing access to people across the country.
