While we try & provide you with an efficient solution
It was just yesterday as I was sipping a nice hot cup of coffee and the news that I was reading hit me. Definitely! More than the caffeine itself, was how a recent medical transportation startup founded in 2015 called DocGO was soon going public with at least $200 million in their balance sheets.
Wait! Wait! The best part is that they provide their on-demand ambulatory service & non-emergency medical transportation to some hot-shots like HBO & NFL.
Well, way to go in the big leagues!
DocGo, the new “last-mile” health service wonder expanding its footprint in mobile health services
Alright! So you got the brief introduction about the DocGO, formerly known as Ambulnz, that became public on Monday after completing a merger with a blank check firm. The merger of DocGO creating an equity value of about $1.1 billion made them go cha-ching in the medical transportation sector.
Through their “last mile” initiative which includes mobile services like testing, immunizations, bloodwork, IV hydration, wound treatment, mobile imaging, and EKGs, among other services, are provided to patients at their homes or workplaces. They are currently operational in 28 states as of now and planning to expand to 35 states by 2022.
What’s very intriguing about the whole operation of DocGO is their approach towards mobile medical service. They believe in assembling a medical field crew of qualified/certified EMTs, paramedics, and licenced practical nurses as opposed to nursing practitioners and physician assistants.
All thanks to the vision of CEO Stan Vashovsky who believes, “DocGo’s approach is more budgety because physician assistants and nurse practitioners, who would be performing work below their level of training, have higher labour costs and are more difficult to recruit, especially now that there is a labour shortage”, he said, “This allows us to supply our services at a considerably lower cost factor.”
Why build a non-emergency medical transportation app?
What better way to solve a problem with efficient & effective use of technology than using it to serve humanity.
Moving to the question of how will a medical transportation app, or a patient transfer app, solve healthcare transportation inadequacies?
Well, let us first make it clear a medical transportation app is usually used for non-emergency purposes only. Especially when routine examinations, lab tests, rehab sessions, pharmaceutical pickups, dental visits, and other crucial appointments are missed.
At the same time, the NEMT is a fast-growing industry, because elderly and handicapped people all around the country require dependable transportation, launching a non-emergency medical transportation app is a good endeavour no matter where you live.
