Diagnostic Services- Drone Diagostic Services: Big changes are coming in the healthcare industry that will help get people treated as quickly as possible. Now, thanks to the drone delivery technology, the work of collecting samples for the health check in remote areas will soon be completed.
Drone service provider Sky Air Mobility will launch the service in conjunction with diagnostics firm Radcliffe Labs. As part of this new collaboration, the work of collecting samples from urban, semi-urban and remote locations in the country will be completed quickly using drone delivery technology, which will help in the treatment of patients. This is the first initiative of its kind in the field of diagnostics to partner with such a supply chain for sample collection.
This will begin with Sky Air Mobility conducting BVLOS drone delivery trials in a selected corridor. Later, it will be marketed in many urban and remote locations in India.
In the month of February, approximately 30 to 40 test flights will be conducted from Radcliffe Lab’s National Reference Laboratory in Noida.
Sample collection work will be carried out by drone services in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jammu and Kashmir and North Eastern states.
Sky Air has successfully completed over 900 flights so far. According to the company’s co-founder, Swapnik Jakkampudi, we are prepared to operate regular delivery flights to ensure fast, efficient and cost-effective delivery of diagnostic samples and other healthcare items. Dheeraj Jain, Founder of Radcliffe Labs, said: “This step is important in order to reduce the time needed to provide diagnostic services to patients living in remote areas of the country.
