Description

The drone age has arrived and autonomous flying is being applied in several areas. Accordingly, the question arises in which industries this technology can make a difference. This paper examines the use of drones in Swiss hospitals. First, a literature review was conducted followed by interviews with selected hospitals. The literature research revealed that academic research on drone use in healthcare is limited. This paper contributes to the literature by showing in which areas of Swiss hospitals drones can be implemented to create cost saving as well as process optimization possibilities in order to manage increasing cost pressure and technological progress. Our study is summarized in two papers one of which is this current paper, which aims to outline the possible areas of drone use while the second paper examines the implementation of this impressive technology in these detected areas.
