Let’s move health forward together
Studies show that almost 6 million people in the US miss medical care every year due to transportation issues. The research also says that even one missed appointment can lead to significantly increased rates of patients stopping visits to their regular provider.* At Uber, we recognize that the path to health may not be easy, but we know the road to care can be.
Since July 2017, we’ve been partnering closely with healthcare organizations to build something together to help meet their unique transportation needs. Today, Uber Health is a HIPAA-supported technology solution that has helped hundreds of thousands of patients and caregivers get to and from care. Providers can also use Uber Health to help get crucial staff to work.
We’re continuing to look down the road ahead to anticipate how to improve Uber Health for our partners and their riders. Together, we’ll continue to move health forward.
