Uber hires team to work with healthcare providers

From Becker’s:

Since launching successful partnerships with Columbia, Md.-based MedStar Health in January and the Boston-based startup Circulation in September, Uber has hired an outreach team to work with healthcare providers to accommodate the growing demand for health-based services, according to MobiHealthNews.

Lindsay Elin, head of federal and community affairs at Uber, spoke on a panel at the Connected Health Conference in Washington D.C. Tuesday. She mentioned a number of initiatives the company has undertaken to increase its footprint in the healthcare industry. Two of those programs are UberAssist and UberFamily. UberAssist aims to provide drivers with special training to help passengers with special needs. UberFamily allows an individual to request a ride for a family member.
