When your organization is in the market for a new custom mobile medical van, it helps to be hyper-aware of all of its features so it serves your target market effectively. This makes sure you know what you’re getting yourself into and don’t later experience buyer’s remorse. Making the wrong choice can lead to missed opportunities, negative community impact, compromised patient care, and increased costs. Considering inclusive customization can guide your path.

At AVAN Mobility, we want your organization to be fully knowledgeable about what our vehicles come included with. We’ve been manufacturing mobile medical vehicles for over a decade, and we know how important full transparency is when discussing our products.

Our goal in writing this article is to give you a better idea about inclusive customization with mobile medical vehicles. You’ll learn how important it is to always be thinking about which patients you’ll be serving so that you know which inclusive customization features you’ll need.


What is inclusive customization?

Inclusive customization is about making sure that what we create (your mobile medical van) works well for everyone, especially those you serve. It means considering the needs of the majority of patients and ensuring that your solutions don’t leave anyone out.

When crafting custom mobile medical vans, it’s important to keep things simple and focused on your core mission: reaching and helping people where they are. In the customization process, it’s important to ask yourselves if there are any common oversights regarding inclusivity. Let’s take a closer look at that.


The importance of identifying your patients

One common oversight organizations make is forgetting to identify the majority of patients they’ll be encountering. To avoid this, keep your objective clear – understand who you’re serving the most.

Knowing exactly who you’re serving is crucial in creating fully inclusive custom mobile medical vehicles. When you identify who the majority of your patients are and will be, you can tailor the van to meet their specific needs. This ensures that your mobile medical van is both accessible and a perfect fit for the people relying on it for healthcare.

Pinpointing your patients is like having a precise roadmap. The clarity allows you to make 100% sure that your van excels in providing the necessary healthcare services.


Don’t overcomplicate things

Manufacturing custom mobile medical vehicles is a bit like solving a puzzle. To make it work, simplicity is sometimes the secret ingredient. Some organizations tend to lose focus by overthinking and forgetting about the main goal. Remember the main goal? Reach and help people where they are.

Navigating the complexity maze: Let simplicity be your guide (more on that in the next section). It helps you navigate through the complexity that can come with mobile medical van customization. Keeping things simple ensures you stay focused on making sure your vehicles work well for as many patients as possible.

Unveiling the clear picture: In the world of inclusive customization, simplicity is like an artist revealing a clear picture. It strips away unnecessary layers, making sure every feature has a purpose. This way, you can meet the diverse needs of your community.


Why is simplicity with inclusive customization important?

Simplicity with inclusive customization is important because it ensures that the complex task of customizing mobile medical vans remains grounded in addressing basic needs.

Manufacturing innovative custom mobile medical vans might sound super tricky, but when you break it down, it’s kind of like building with LEGO blocks – simple at its core. In this section, we’re going to take a look at why simplicity, mixed with inclusive customization, is a big deal. This section will help you view inclusive customization from a different perspective.


1. Meeting basic needs

Suppose you’re running a basic healthcare clinic in your van and giving out vaccines. What do you need for vaccines to stay effective? A refrigerator. Easy, right? You can also store drinks in there for patients. This basic necessity forms the foundation of your customization process. If you look at inclusive customization through the lens of simplicity, it’ll reduce the complications you experience during the process.


2. Creating a sterile space

Now, let’s say your organization wants a clean space where your team can wash their hands often. What’s the answer? A sink. A sink is an important addition that ensures hygiene for everyone in a mobile medical van. 

Sometimes, organizations might overthink getting a sink by getting caught up in complex details like how you add water, how you use it, etc. They might forget that, at its core, a sink is a simple upgrade that offers a clean and safe environment, contributing to the overall well-being of both healthcare professionals and patients.


3. Adapting to different places

But wait, what if you’re helping people with healthcare in a busy city like Memphis at night where safety is a big concern? You might need extra safety features like window tinting and grid bars on windows. Instead of getting lost in all of the complex details of this, try to think of it as adding extra locks to your front door. 


4. Considering the climate

Or maybe you’re providing healthcare in a hot place like Florida. What could be helpful? An awning for shade. It’s like having a cool umbrella on a scorching day. This thoughtful addition caters to the climate, ensuring comfort for both healthcare providers and patients. This is especially ideal if there are lineups of people waiting to be seen at your mobile medical clinic.


5. Specialized services

Now, if you’re offering X-ray services, what’s the must-have? An X-ray machine, of course. If you’re running a mobile medical clinic and a patient comes in with a broken bone, these machines help with diagnosing that. While specialized equipment appears to add complexity, the main focus remains on the core service – providing critical healthcare.


Final thoughts

Remember, it’s easy to complicate things by overthinking every detail. But, guess what? Going back to basics makes it all easier. Keep it simple, and think about who you’re helping. That’s the secret sauce to inclusive customization. In the grand scheme, simplicity doesn’t mean sacrificing innovation; it means streamlining choices based on essential needs.

Ensuring your mobile medical van is field-ready is necessary to make sure no one gets left out of essential healthcare services. When your van is equipped to perform in diverse and challenging environments, it becomes a lifeline for reaching communities that might otherwise be left without medical assistance. 

The ability of your mobile medical unit to navigate rough terrains, withstand varying weather conditions, and function optimally in remote locations is a game-changer. This adaptability ensures that healthcare reaches everyone, regardless of geographical barriers or challenging circumstances. 

It’s about going beyond the conventional and making certain that the wheels of your mobile medical mission keep turning, reaching those who need it the most. In the world of accessible healthcare, a field-ready mobile medical van is like a beacon of hope and inclusivity that actively works to bridge gaps and serve communities with the care they deserve.
