Here’s some good news for drone technology. Not only are drones making tasks more efficient, they are also making a difference in prices. Yes, a recent study reveal that drones not only make a difference in speed when it comes to delivering medicine. Drones may also create a lower price range for medication, since costs regarding delivery would lessen.
Medical Drone Transport:
This is because drones may not require the same costs of maintenance used in traditional delivery. Transports such as trucks, motorcycles, and cars all face the risk of damage while on the field. This requires down time for repairs and maintenance, leading to even more losses. Drones can take to the skies and take the optimal routes. They say the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. With land vehicles, that is nearly impossible, with all the roads and obstacles you commonly see within cities. Drones however can take that straight path – or at least something close to it. This makes delivery times a whole lot shorter, getting the medication where it needs to go.
The medical field is a game of life and death, with response time being a huge factor. A late medication, or a delayed organ transport may lead to a patient’s untimely demise. With drone delivery, the occurrence of transports being stuck in traffic would be eradicated.
Not only would drone technology be a change for the better in the city. Suburbs and rural areas for example would get a faster supply of medication, rather than wait for land transports. Some places may have difficult terrain, leaving cars and trucks to take longer. A drone can not only bypass these obstacles, it can do so at a faster pace. This means the local medical clinic at a suburban setting can get immediate medication rather than wait a few days. This also means that communication between primary hospitals and the area’s clinics would be better.
At the end of the day, the patient is what’s important. With drone technology, patients can get a better chance at their medical needs being taken care of at a faster time frame. This means less hassle and worry for the patients, and even better: a more efficient operation at clinics.
