The entire healthcare area faces fundamental changes in the coming years. Some of the main challenges will be more chronically ill patients and higher demands from citizens, healthcare professionals and decision-makers. At the same time, new forms of mobility such as self-driving cars and drones are emerging and will also change the emergency medical service area.

It is a general assumption that drones will be one of several new ways of transportation no later than 2030. How we create more value from the new technology is an open question:
Does the value lie in faster response time to e.g. patients with cardiac arrest so we can save and improve more lives?
Does the value lie in better help to remote areas?
Does the value lie in being able to treat more patients at home?
Or in reducing the number of ambulance trips and thus save staff and money?

We don’t know today, but now we will start to look into how the drone technology can and cannot be used.
Cooperation with tech-partners and Falck customers
Falck is in dialogue with several leading drone suppliers to find a tech-partner. For drone suppliers, Falck is interesting to work with because the company is present both in Europe, the US and Latin America. At the same time, the emergency response area is seen as a prioritised use case, when authorities worldwide are to give the first permissions to fly drones beyond visual line of sight and to fly with manned drones.

Falck is not going to develop the technology but will focus on adapting drones to emergency response. Our aim is to find out how and when the technology may be used in the future emergency response services. New technology is a way to get more healthcare for less money, and Falck is well-positioned to test and evaluate new technologies on a large scale. That requires global partnerships and implementation across national markets.
