Before these special ride services came about, many patients canceled their appointments because they couldn't get to the office. Without a way to the doctor's office, the patients weren't keeping up with their scheduled wellness checks, shots, or illness treatments, which led to health declines. The situation was detrimental to practitioners as well. Doctor's offices and hospitals were losing the money they could have made on the visits every time a patient or client canceled an appointment. Modern healthcare services now provide transportation for their patients. The offices partner with rideshare companies and transportation providers to give their clients the necessary services to make appointments. Anyone with an issue getting to a scheduled appointment can notify the provider, who will connect the patient to the appropriate service. This new transportation system keeps medical facility profits from declining vastly and supports patients in maintaining excellent health. Medical facilities still have to invest in transportation services, but the costs are much less than the total monetary losses they experience from cancellations.
