With the rise of companion diagnostics and personalised medicine, our inventories run short of treatment. Particularly in the case of cancer drugs as their cost is too high for the hospital to keep a high inventory.
So doctors often have to make a choice between two patients if only one drug set is available. This was the case for Avalyn, a child whose acute leukemia was diagnosed the same day as another child.
Getting the new drug delivered can take more than one week through ground transportation. Multiple warehouses, traffic, driver availability, theft are often quoted as the reasons for missing drugs.
With EVA point-to-point airborne logistics the hospital can get the drug delivered straight from the warehouse. One V-STation is positioned at the hospital and serves as a landing area for delivery drones.
