Uber Health, Cerner to facilitate healthcare transportation

Uber Health and Cerner Corporation, a global health platform, announced the two companies will work together to help reduce transportation barriers that can lead to delayed care, poor management of chronic conditions and declining health outcomes for patients. With this agreement, providers can license Uber Health’s non-emergency transportation solutions, which can be added into the Cerner electronic health record (EHR) and directly into the hands of providers to help them more effectively manage challenges their patients face.

Uber Health launched in March 2018 to broaden Uber for Business’s suite of enterprise solutions and support its vision to meet the transportation needs of businesses across industries. By leveraging Cerner’s platforms and solutions – containing the health information of approximately 200 million people and accessed daily by millions of clinicians – healthcare providers can reinvest resources into care.
