The problem we solve: Healthcare recipients have restricted access to non-emergency health services, leading to missed appointments for purposes such as well visits, health screening, and vaccination. This causes worsened health conditions and health outcomes, leading to greater expenditures that would otherwise have been unnecessary.
About our solution: EasyRyde’s API for healthcare logistics helps reduce community barriers and increase access to healthcare for those who do not drive including the disabled, handicapped and elderly patient population. The API solution gives providers and hospital systems the ability to provides a predictable method of getting Passenger/Patient to and from their appointments. This ultimately helps control costs by minimizing avoidable/costly emergency room visits, improving service quality through timely interventions, and promote NEMT deliver.Progress to date:
