With patient no-shows for non-emergency medical transport averaging 18% nationally, medical care providers are struggling to maintain their patients’ health and their own economic efficiencies. Safr Care’s comprehensive platform provides effective solutions that address transportation challenges faced by healthcare providers.
Safr Care is integrating with leading Electronic Healthcare Records, allowing healthcare providers to request non-emergency medical transportation, wheelchair transportation services, or elderly transportation services for medical appointments from their native system, which allows the focus to shift more on patient care. Safr Care software reduces the workload on the healthcare provider by providing intuitive and user-friendly features, resulting in better clinical outcomes.
According to a 2017 report published by Health Management Technology, patient no-shows cost hospitals $150 billion annually. The cost has risen during COVID-19, and is predicted to continue to increase post-pandemic. Some research has suggested that provision of transportation to reduce no-show offers a 297% return on investment (ROI). Safr Care’s healthcare-focused transportation portal easily connects healthcare providers with experienced and credentialed transportation providers, therefore reducing the no-shows that are due to lack of transportation.
Healthcare providers can monitor patients while they are in route to medical appointments, or when discharged from the hospital. Providers know instantly that the patient is being transported on schedule. The Safr Care healthcare dashboard makes it easy to communicate with the patient and the driver, resulting in better service standards for healthcare facilities.
