Uber Health, Socially Determined Strike Partnership

Through a new partnership, payers and providers will be able to leverage Socially Determined’s social risk data to identify which patients have barriers to accessing healthcare and what those barriers are. Uber Health will then be able to offer its services to support those patients’ specific needs, whether it’s non-emergency medical transportation, same-day prescription delivery or grocery and over-the-counter item delivery.
