Abstract

Uber Health was launched primarily to provide a ride-hailing platform which would be particularly available to healthcare providers. Its creation was rooted in some worrying statistics regarding patient care such as lack of availability and reliability of transportation being responsible for about 3.6 million Americans to miss medical appointments and almost a third of patients being unable to turn up to medical appointments every year. In 2019, Uber Health dived into remote care by signing a pact with medical supply company 'Henry Schein Medical' and 'Medpod'. Through this, Uber Health agreed to integrate into the platform of Medpod, an arrangement which would allow doctors to carry out remote telediagnostic exams. The telediagnostic platform of Medpod could be used by doctors by tapping into Uber Health so as to send out a trained practitioner to a patient, or even send a patient to some clinical location besides performing a remote test. With Uber's rival Lyft also in the fray, would the integration work for Uber?
