Lyft Hails Major Hospital Partner In Sutter Health

The deal was announced on Monday, is significant for Lyft, which is tapping into a hospital industry that is under pressure to improve quality and reduce costs as health insurance payments move from fee-for-service medicine to value-based models. It’s all about getting healthcare in the right place, at the right time and in the right amount rather than fee-for-service reimbursement based on volume of care delivered so ride-sharing companies see a key role.

“We are reimagining the ways we provide and deliver care, which includes increasing access to services and making them more convenient,” Sutter Health’s chief innovation officer, Chris Waugh, said.
