How to Choose the Right Courier for Your Medical Deliveries in Tampa

Medical deliveries are unlike other deliveries in that they require confidentiality, climate controlled transport, and 24/7 service. When looking for the right medical courier for your deliveries in Tampa, it is crucial to keep this in mind. After all, your courier service acts as an extension of your company so take the time to seek out the medical courier who will complete deliveries on time and make your patients feel at ease.

Medical deliveries in Tampa must maintain their temperature. Florida is known for having a warmer climate, but things like medications and oxygen tanks needs to hold a specific, lower, temperature. Therefore, the right courier to make your medical deliveries should carry packages in insulated bags. Additionally, the cargo must be transported in a vehicle that is controlled climate. Maintaining the appropriate temperature of all deliveries shows that a courier company understands the delicate nature of medical deliveries and has policies in place to ensure that each package is delivered in perfect shape. 

Another way a courier company shows they understand the health care industry is by recognizing the sensitive nature of all of your packages. There is a reason the medical field has rules and regulations about who can view patient information. Therefore, the right courier for your medical deliveries in Tampa will take steps to show you that the privacy of your patients is priority. This means that all Agents of the courier company must have been background-checked, be HIPAA-compliant, and insured. When a company has taken these steps with all of their Agents, you can be sure they are serious about patient rights, and also that they understand how medical deliveries differ from deliveries in other fields. 

Accurate and reliable delivery times are also imperative when handling medical deliveries. Couriers can fall into the habit of failing to give their clients accurate times of arrival. Additionally, many companies do not practice delivery confirmation. This trend is doubly dangerous for health care companies. Knowing exactly when a package will be delivered can help put a patient’s mind at ease and ensure that someone is at the destination to accept the delivery. Additionally, being kept in the dark about whether or not a package has gotten to your patient adds unnecessary stress to your workday. In a recently conducted survey by Dropoff, findings show that 71% of respondents desire package tracking on their medical deliveries. The right courier for your medical deliveries will have accurate ETAs, live map package tracking, and delivery confirmation emails.

"Just wanted to reach out and say ... WOW! We are already becoming big fans of Dropoff! Please, keep it up! We are definitely looking forward to 2017 with Dropoff!"

Amanda Morse - HR and Aministrative Manager, Newport Med Specialty Healthcare Management

"Dropoff just makes sense. There's always a courier in uniform and ready to go, regardless of the hour.  When the courier arrives at the hospital, they call to let the family know they've arrived, they get the packaged placenta, and have someone sign at the time of the pickup. (And, let's be frank: using a courier service lets us spend more time with our families! Instead of spending countless hours in the car, we're at soccer games and band competitions and piano recitals - or just sitting on the couch, hanging out with our kids. I can't tell you how many times we get calls during an activity that's really important to one of our kids and instead of leaving, we're able to send our courier service.)"

Maryn Taylor - Co-Owner, DFW Placenta

"We have used Dropoff since September 2015 and have not looked back with any regret! Keeping and maintaining happy clients is a major part of our business, where delivery of life saving intravenous medications to a patient is critical. All their couriers are dressed in uniformed attire, friendly, present professionally and are considerate of our need to provide medical intravenous and enteral products to our ill clients."

Edmund Lee R.PH - Branch Manager, Amerita Pharmacy Inc.
