About the Team
The Uber Health team is taking the technology and driver partner network that provide reliable rides to millions of people all over the world and bringing it to the people who need it most - patients. Our team is working to ensure that access to healthcare is never a logistics problem. Nearly 4 million Americans miss or delay medical care each year because they did not have a transportation solution. Current approaches to non-emergency medical transportation have numerous challenges. Rising costs, program integrity, and vendor oversight are problems for federal and private payers. Patients also are not well served by the status quo—wait times are routinely high and drivers frequently do not show. We have a responsibility to do something in the space. Uber Health is Uber’s solution to the Healthcare Industry’s transportation problems. We have developed a HIPAA-compliant website and API that allow hospitals, clinics, and care facilities to centrally schedule, manage, and pay for rides at scale for their patients, staff, and visitors. By offering affordable and reliable on-demand transportation options to patients, Uber Health benefits patients, the healthcare system, and society. These benefits include:
Lowering the patient no-show rate and improving patient outcomes
Providing immediate cost savings to the healthcare system and increasing the overall efficiency of the system
At Uber we don’t just accept difference—we celebrate it, we support it, and we thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and our community. Uber is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
