Uber Health powers Grand Rounds, Carisk Partners’ transportation; Wellpepper, eVideon offer joint patient experience product; and more digital health deals
Carisk Partners taps Uber Health’s transport services; Canopy Health launches patient app powered by Anexinet.
Uber Health announced a new partnership this morning with Grand Rounds, a company that matches specialists with patients and other providers, that will provide members of the latter with non-emergency rides to and from appointments. Integrating Uber’s platform with Grand Rounds’ existing care coordination backend will not only allow the company to more easily manage its members’ bookings, but also allow patients to directly book their own rides.
“We know employers and their ecosystem partners play a major role in how individuals access care, whether that comes in the form of employee benefits or time off of work to travel to appointments,” Dan Trigub, head of Uber Health, said in a statement. “By teaming up with Grand Rounds, our shared capabilities can simplify how members receive high-quality care, ensuring that we help remove transportation barriers and get members to the right place, at the right time.”
San Francisco-centered medical alliance Canopy Health has developed and launched a patient-facing mobile application and web portal courtesy of digital business solutions provider Anexinet. Available in the App Store and Google Play Store, the MyCanopyHealth App allows members to access provider directories, a virtual ID card, a cost estimation tool, video visit support and other features.
“Canopy Health was truly looking to be a differentiator compared to traditional health plan and provider portals that are not inherently consumer-centric,” Aman Bhasin, CIO of BayHealth Development, said in a statement. “We wanted to provide members with easy to use health tools that didn’t look or feel stale, meeting and exceeding consumer expectations across other industries.”
