Failing to efficiently manage patient transit costs our communities more than you think.
Why Access Matters
Obesity is one of the biggest drivers of preventable chronic diseases and healthcare costs in the United States. Americans collectively spend up to $315.8 billion annually on obesity-related medical treatment. When patients don't have transportation, and have little to no access to primary care and quality food sources, these patients are at an extremely high risk for developing obesity-related chronic conditions.
Almost 4 million adults and children miss necessary medical care each year, because they don’t have transportation.
911 Ambulance Abuse
Patients that over-utilize 911 for non-emergency medical reasons, cited "no transportation" as one of the top three reasons for calling!
When patients call 911, an ambulance shows up, regardless of a true emergency.
Poor Patient Experiences
We’ve learned from our clients that transportation vendors are often plagued with poor customer service, no-show drivers, or exorbitant wait times of 4+ hours!
These inefficiencies occur largely because of the current antiquated workflows of scheduling and managing rides for patients.
MedHaul offers cloud-based software solutions that ease the laborious and costly burdens of managing patient transportation.
Hospitals, patients, and medical transportation providers now have the convenience to book medical transportation to/from various locations, while streamlining the management of day-to-day transportation operations.
MedHaul's primary goal is to help healthcare organizations manage this huge social barrier that drastically effects patient outcomes.
