Mississippi partners with Uber Health

Mississippi is the latest state to partner with Uber Health. The state will pay $1 million a year to provide non-emergency rides to low-income patients. About one in five low-income patients do not attend their appointments because lack of transportation. People without smartphones will be able to access this service since the health department does the ride scheduling.

Eighty-five percent of physicians worry about whether their patients will find them through online information, according to a recent study. Users can monitor the removal process on Doximity’s website.
