How Ford GoRide Helps Those in Need Get to Their Appointments
Ford has teamed up with the Beaumont Health network to provide non-emergency medical transportation for those who are worried about making it to their appointments safely and on time. At this time, the Ford GoRide non-emergency medical transportation service is active at more than 200 Beaumont facilities, with more planned in the future. With the Ford GoRide non-emergency medical transportation service, patients can book their non-emergency medical transportation up to 30 days in advance, so they never have to worry about getting to their appointments.
Why Did Ford Start the GoRide Non-Emergency Medical Transportation Service?
The answer to this question is simple – Ford is an American company that cares about the American people.
“There’s no excuse for the fact that so many people have trouble simply making it to their medical appointments. By merging our expertise in vehicles, technology and human-centered design, we’ve created a high-touch, patient-focused service that truly understands and is tailored to patients and their needs. Our service is focused on multiple social determinants of health, and delivers the quality of care and on-time certainty that medical facilities need in order to increase throughput and reduce wait times.” – Marion Harris, Vice President, Ford Mobility Business Group

The Ford GoRide non-emergency medical transportation service will be considered a failure if the patients who utilize it don’t find it helpful. Thankfully, that’s not something Ford has to worry about.
