Atrium Health Begins Drone Deliveries of Medicines

Atrium Health has begun drone deliveries of medicines and blood.  This is not a pilot, this is part of the way they are serving their patients. They are one of the first supply chain organizations in the nation to be using drones as a regular part of the way they fulfill orders.  As soon as a patient checks in at a Atrium infusion center, their specific medicine is created at the hospital and flow over to the clinic via drone, creating an on-demand pharmacy for medicine with a short shelf life.  Here Conrad Emmerich, their Chief Supply Chain Officer, will talk about their journey, their challenges, and the next steps.
