How Circulation Works for

Medical Clinics

Health Plans
THE PROBLEM

Each year, around 3.6 million patients across the U.S. miss at least one appointment due to lack of access to transportation.

1-patient
PATIENT NEEDS A RIDE

A healthcare administrator calls a patient to confirm an appointment. The patient indicates they don’t think they can make it because they can’t find a ride.

2-laptop
THE RIDE IS BOOKED

The healthcare administrator books a ride for the patient using Circulation’s simplified ride ordering platform. Rides can be booked on-demand or scheduled days, weeks or months in advance of a patient’s appointment.

CIRCULATION MATCHES THE REQUEST

Circulation’s transportation exchange matches the patient with a vehicle based on their needs (i.e. specialized vehicles), as well as current availability. Once the ride is ordered, Circulation sends reminders via text or voice letting the patient know the status of their ride.

SERVICES DELIVERED

The ride arrives at the patient’s home for pickup. The patient arrives on-time to their appointment and if needed, the patient can be transported back to his/her home after the appointment.

Circulation has a 91% patient on-time rate and reduces no-shows by 68%, on average.

THE PROBLEM

Patients who are ready for discharge but lack the means to get home are tying up valuable hospital resources, stymying patient flow, and creating liability risks for hospitals.

PATIENT NEEDS A RIDE

When the patient is ready for discharge and indicates they are lacking a ride home, hospital staff can schedule them a ride using Circulation’s platform.

THE RIDE IS BOOKED

With just a few clicks, the ride is booked. Circulation’s transportation exchange matches the ride request with the best possible vehicle based on the individual’s requirements (i.e. wheelchair van).

CIRCULATION MATCHES THE REQUEST

Circulation matches the request to a driver and automatically dispatches the ride. The patient then receives notifications — either by text or phone call — with status updates and information they need to complete their ride home.

To protect against runaway costs and rider abuse, administrators can configure safeguards like price ceilings or authorized pick-up/drop-off locations.

After being notified that the driver is at the location, the patient gets into the vehicle and completes their ride home.

THE PROBLEM

Patient no-shows cost the U.S. Healthcare system an estimated $150B each year. An estimated 25% of those no-shows happen due to lack of access to transportation.

THE RIDE IS BOOKED

A call center representative books the ride for the patient using Circulation’s simplified ride ordering platform. The request is automatically matched with the best possible vehicle based on the beneficiary’s physical needs (i.e. wheelchair van).
