In modern times, the use of information technologies in the automation of emergency medical care processes is of great importance. This study offers the application of cyber-physical geosystems to optimize and improve emergency medical care processes using geospatial information. Moreover, it presents the methodology of creating cyber-physical geosystems including the collection, analysis, monitoring and integration of geospatial data into medical information systems and the application of telemedicine. The main goal of cyber-physical geosystems is to increase the efficiency of patient care in emergency situations. Real-time monitoring of the patient in the ambulance by a doctor-expert is very important during the transportation of the patient from the scene of the incident or from the medical institution to the hospital equipped with modern equipment. Consequently, medical experts can give emergency doctors important instructions about the patient in time. This results in a reduction in response time in emergency situations and an improvement in the quality of medical care. This article discusses the importance, limitations, and advantages of using the technologies of cyber-physical geosystems in the context of modern emergency medical care. Correspondingly, it analyzes the advantages and limitations of the system, its expansion and improvement methods. The results of this study highlight the successful implementation of cyber-physical geosystems in different regions. In this regard, it recommends the necessity of joint cooperation with the state and medical institutions (pp.88-93).
