How Uber Health is Building the NEMT Experience of the Future

10:00am - 11:00am Thursday, March 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W204A

Description

Access to transportation is a key social determinant of health that disproportionately affects vulnerable communities like the elderly, low-income, or chronically ill. Since launching two years ago, Uber Health has worked with leading industry partners to identify challenges within the non-emergency medical transportation space and build solutions to expand access to care. Uber Health’s HIPAA-secure solution sets up Uber transportation for patients between their homes and healthcare facilities, offering a seamless, stress-free experience that can serve anyone, including those without cell phones, credit cards, or Uber accounts. Uber Health meets patients where they are, ensuring technology is never a limiting factor in getting someone the care they need. In this session, Dan Trigub, Head of Uber Health, will discuss the impact of ridesharing solutions and give a glimpse into the future of NEMT transportation, sharing case studies from various Uber Health partners, including Mike Dunne, VP of Healthcare and Transit for American Logistics.
