Lyft has announced that it will be teaming up with Allscripts, one of the nation’s leading electronic health records companies, integrate its platform into the daily routines of 2,500 hospitals, 45,000 physician practices and 180,000 physicians, reaching an estimated 7 million patients.
Lyft plans to provide the ride-hailing service to doctors and hospitals who want to arrange transportation for patients who can't get to appointments.
Lyft chief business officer David Baga says Lyft already reaches "tens of millions" of patients who may be eligible for health and financial reasons for physician-sponsored rides to and from appointments.
“Through a seamless integration of Lyft’s API and Allscripts’ EHR system, we’re empowering clinicians to eliminate transportation barriers for millions of people across the country by making it easier to get to and from medical appointments with Lyft,” said Gyre Renwick, VP of Lyft Business. “Our partnership with Allscripts is an important next step towards reaching our goal of cutting in half the number of Americans that face transportation issues to medical appointments by 2020, as we work to ultimately improve people’s lives with the world’s best transportation.”
