Transportation options for patients in need - Uber to the rescue!

I recently took part in a lupus panel discussion where the subject of transportation to and from appointments and clinical trial sites got some air time. So when this article popped up, entitled:

Uber is driving patients to their doctors in a big grab for medical transit market interest was piqued! According to the article --

"Uber announced the launch of a new digital tool meant to book rides for patients who need assistance getting to and from their appointments. A health care provider can book a ride for patients and caregivers immediately, within a few hours, or with 30 days’ notice. The company is positioning itself as a cheaper and more reliable option than most non-emergency medical transportation."

Looks like Uber Health is trying to be a viable option to get you to and from your next appointment! Read the entire article here.
