The Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine is studying whether an mHealth platform that uses drones can speed up important genomic tests and improve clinical outcomes for seriously ill children.

A San Diego-based children’s hospital is exploring a novel mHealth platform to speed up testing services and improve clinical care for seriously ill children.

The Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (RCIGM) is partnering with Deloitte to study the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) – otherwise known as drones – to fly genomic testing specimens back and forth from the lab. The mHealth service would not only speed up care by avoiding traffic issues, but could open the door to more services delivered by drone.
