Uber partners with S.F. healthcare startup to get patients to appointments
Silicon Valley Business Journal

San Francisco-based Grand Rounds, a digital health company that helps large employers support their workers in navigating the complex medical system, has teamed up with Uber to ease getting members to their appointments, the company said Wednesday.

The partnership lets Grand Rounds’ care coordinators book rides for its over 4.5 million-person reach across the country. After an assessment period, the company hopes to integrate Uber’s HIPAA-compliant healthcare interface straight into the Grand Rounds platform, allowing members to begin booking their own rides directly. Currently, the rides are free to members, with the cost of the Uber ride covered by Grand Rounds.
