Each year, approximately 4 million patients miss out on healthcare due to lack of available transportation. Based upon no-show rates for appointments and the volume of visits per year, the cost to the US healthcare system could be as much as $150 billion. During a one-year period pilot of utilization of Lyft for non-emergency patient transport there was a 27% reduction in no-show rates and 297% return on investment. Facilities such as MedStar Health and SCL Health have partnered with ridesharing companies to reduce ambulatory “no-shows" and deliver complimentary, convenient and reliable non-emergency transportation services for patients facing transportation barriers. The panel will discuss emerging trends with healthcare organizations' partnering with transportation network companies such as Uber and Lyft, the benefits and exposures these companies create for healthcare providers and how the industry can mitigate those risks as utilization increases.Learn more
