Dec 7, 2023 | Medical Courier

Every day, medical shipments impact the care of patients around the world. Healthcare facilities that invest in professional medical delivery services improve their operations and build stronger connections with the community.

Understanding how to use a medic delivery service is the first step to faster deliveries and better care at your facility. 

What Are Medic Delivery Services? 

A medical (medic) delivery service is a specialized courier service with trained professionals for medical specimens and equipment transport. Healthcare facilities such as hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories, medical warehousing, and clinics benefit from medical couriers. Here’s why:

Important Factors of Medical Couriers 

Medical couriers are a specialized form of delivery service that has skyrocketed in the industry over the past decade. The medical field is extremely time-sensitive; medical couriers understand that every second of every minute counts for on-time deliveries. 

Training and Compliance 

Unlike traditional delivery services, medical couriers go through extensive training to handle medical equipment, supplies, and biological specimens properly. This training includes federal and state compliance regulations such as HIPPA and OSHA. Medical couriers know the importance of confidentiality and take the necessary precautions to protect every patient’s privacy. 

Saves Money Over Time 

When you invest in a medical courier service from a third-party logistics provider, they cover the following expenses:

  • Insurance and workers’ compensation 
  • Training costs
  • Vehicle maintenance and depreciation 
  • Fuel and parking violations 
  • Uniforms and cell phones 

Tracking and Record Keeping 

Have you ever worried about a medical shipment experiencing delays? With a professional medical delivery service, you have access to tracking each of your shipments. Detailed record-keeping is available to know when and where your shipment is traveling throughout the delivery process at any given moment.
