Acadian Ambulance, one of the United States’ largest privately held medical transport companies, has selected Blueflite’s drone and digital platform to develop a first-of-its-kind, drone-based emergency response solution for lifesaving medical deliveries in the US.

The platform is a joint development and will provide much faster delivery of medical equipment and medicines than what is possible using conventional transport.

The companies will jointly develop the technology solution for medical emergency deliveries, based on Blueflite’s advanced logistics drone platform, with R&D support from survey and engineering firm, Fenstermaker.

Shortening emergency response times

“Using drones to deliver critical medical equipment will shorten emergency response times considerably. And when every second counts, that can save lives and reduce cost in healthcare,” said Frank Noppel, Blueflite’s CEO.

“We are very excited to have been selected by Acadian and very much look forward to co-developing this platform, which will greatly benefit the lives of many.”

“We selected the Blueflite platform for its advanced technology and capability to deliver lifesaving medical supplies safely and efficiently to those in need. This is the next step in the future of medical response, and we are excited to further development in conjunction with Blueflite and Fenstermaker,” said Benjamin Swig, director of healthcare innovation and strategy at Acadian Ambulance.Subscribe to the FINN weekly newsletter
