There are many companies operating in the Chicago courier service that offer medical delivery services as part of their overall service package. Medical courier companies are an important part of the overall healthcare industry. These are specially licensed couriers who have the right vehicles and training to transport medical supplies. Normally, these types of deliveries go according to normal schedules, similar to how the rest of the courier industry works. But there is also another type of medical courier service, called STAT shipping.
STAT is also often known as an emergency messaging service. Usually, however, the term emergency courier service is used to describe these types of deliveries when they are made in the business or corporate world. A STAT delivery means the same thing, but also states that the delivery in question is one that involves the medical industry.
STAT is a term often used in hospitals to mean that something must be done as quickly as possible. Many medical terms come from Latin roots, with STAT being no different. The original word on which the term is based is “statim”. This means immediately on the Latin original. Everything required STAT has the highest possible priority, and the same mindset applies to STAT delivery services that move medical material.
Usually, a STAT delivery is one that is required quickly because the treatment is due to the delivery being completed quickly. This would be in situations such as when an organ must be sent to be given to a transplant patient. In addition, STAT service is sometimes used to move medical material to emergencies or emergencies when on-site treatment is required.
The STAT service can be performed either by ground transport or by air. In many cases, air transport will be used because it is much faster than making deliveries on the ground. Usually, it is the aircraft that will be used in medical helicopter deliveries. Helicopters can take off with less notice than aircraft and are not held up when landing and taking off from major airports. Many large hospitals include landing facilities directly on site so that cargo can be delivered and patients air lifted. Ground transportation will still be used in certain situations, such as when a STAT delivery only needs to be made between two hospitals in the same city. The option used will always be the one that will result in faster deliveries.
