For three years, blood samples and medical equipment will be flown with drones between Odense, Svendborg and Ærø in a new project named HealthDrone launched by researchers, Falck and Autonomous Mobility.
Later, drones will also transport highly specialized healthcare professionals who need to arrive quickly. This will ensure better treatment and save the Danish health care system almost DKK 200 million a year.
Falck sees great potential in the use of drones. Falck CEO Jakob Riis believes that initiatives like HealthDrone are important elements in creating a future-proof healthcare system.
