Idea submitted by: Rostislav A Mitrofanov, MD
Using flying robots/drones for medication delivery to patients (with tuberculosis, for example) with possibility of directly observed treatment and patient direct communication with medical specialist. The drone can be programmed to locate mobile signal from a targeted patient and to deliver itself to him/her. Installed equipment will provide medications and visual control about intake (if needed).
Currently, it seems crazy, but a personal smartphone 7 years ago was the same type of dream...
More and more patients undergo treatment in outpatient settings and their treatment adherence (especially for TB patients) is a very complex well-known and recognized problem - medical, financial, ethical, etc. Drones will get cheaper and smarter and they will be an extension of the health care system to each patient.
