Innovation oftentakes time and patience, but over the past several yearsthe drone industry has grown by leaps and bounds. When UPS began working with drones, we applied the same rigorous safety standards that we apply to our air and ground delivery services. At UPS Flight Forward, this commitment to safety is embedded in everything we do, including how we’re helping to advance healthcare logistics.
Our purpose is simple:to move our world forward by delivering what matters. Every step of the way, we are focused on contributing to a safe, thoughtful infrastructure that the drone industry can build upon for generations to come.
Today, we are using drones for specimen logistics on hospital campuses to help reduce the time it takes to diagnose and treat patients. We’re deliberate in how we use drone technology to enhance the provider and patient experience in remarkable ways. That’s why we pride ourselves on being a “Quality Focused, Patient Driven” organization.
Imagine the possibilities for transporting critical healthcare itemsfora network of hospitals and healthcare clinics, especially in remote or underserved areas. For instance, compounded medications are custom formulated to fit the unique needs of cancer patients and are typically time and temperature sensitive.
