Healthpointe staff may now schedule non-emergency transportation services for patients by means of Uber Health and Lyft Business.
Healthpointe Medical Group recognizes that some patients have limited access or no access to reliable medical transportation due to financial hardship or injury-related reasons. As a result, Healthpointe has upgraded their appointment services to assist patients with transportation issues by means of ridesharing services.
Healthpointe is now providing patients with pick-up and drop-off rides conveniently with no additional actions. Their staff can schedule on-demand or advanced non-emergency transportation services with Uber Health and Lyft Business for countless Southern California communities. With this upgrade, Healthpointe plans to address the transportation issue and reduce patient no-shows.
These new medical transportation services are tailored for the healthcare industry and include benefits such as on-demand scheduling, lower costs and destination tracking. The service is also compliant with HIPAA’s standards.
“Patient care is our utmost priority,” says Healthpointe’s Dr. Ismael Silva. “By utilizing Uber Health and Lyft Business, we can ensure that patients receive the professional care that they seek in a timely manner.”
Already, over 100 healthcare organizations in the U.S., including hospitals, senior care facilities, physical therapy centers, rehab centers and clinics are using the non-emergency transportation services, and Healthpointe is happy to be among them.
