Lyft extends partnership with patient transportation platform

Lyft and LogistiCare, a provider of technology to manage nonemergency medical transportation, have renewed and expanded their partnership to improve access to care for patients across the U.S.

The two organizations began their partnership in 2017, when they launched on-demand patient transportation in 276 cities. Since then, with the combination of LogistiCare's ride-coordinating platform and Lyft's network of rideshare drivers, they have facilitated millions of rides in 48 states, according to a March 12 news release.

In that time, Lyft and Logisticare have partnered with more healthcare plans and providers to improve access. Among their most recent partners are Sacramento, Calif.-based Sutter Health | Aetna and Chicago-based CommonSpirit Health.

"Lyft has been an exceptional partner that is instrumental to LogistiCare's success. This collaboration ensures millions of Americans will get to their medical appointments in a dependable way, even the most vulnerable who may not otherwise get the care they deserve," Dan Greenleaf, CEO of the Providence Service Corp., LogistiCare's parent company, said in the release. "We appreciate the professionalism of drivers on the Lyft platform and couldn't be more pleased to have extended our relationship."
