Zipline, Medical Drone Delivery Pioneer to Headline HISA2020

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA - Media
OutReach -
30 November 2020 - Technology is transforming industries on a global scale, with the
COVID-19 pandemic presenting an interesting opportunity for medical
practitioners and policy-makers to test new ways in which technology -- like
Telemedicine, AI, Big Data, Analytics, Cloud Computing and Mobility -- can
facilitate sustainable healthcare systems of the future.

 

An example of this is Zipline, an on-demand
drone-delivery company that uses aviation technology to distribute medical
supplies to healthcare workers in Africa and all over the world. The US based company is currently valued at $1.2 Billion and is slated
by Fast Company as one of the most innovative companies of 2020.

 

Zipline says that it is on a mission to provide every human on Earth
with instant access to vital medical supplies -- and it will do this by
combining healthcare expertise with cutting-edge technology. With their Rwandan
blood drive being an excellent case study of such mission.

 

Daniel Marfo, GM of Zipline International, is expected to unpack
Zipline's Customer-Centered and Tech-Enabled approach at this year's Healthcare Innovation Summit Africa -- taking place
virtually on 2 to 3 December 2020.
