How does non-emergency medical transportation help?

Access to medical transportation has been an issue for many people. Especially if one needs to go to medical appointments. Patients who have to go for checkups get late or have to postpone appointments due to lack of adequate commutation. Keeping this in mind, many private and public providers have come up with non-emergency medical transportation. These vehicles take people to their designated hospitals, clinics or other appointments faster, safer and on time.

1. Caters to people with disabilities

People with physical disabilities have a hard time using public transit. Having medical transportation helps in making their lives easier. Providing such a facility is also a great step towards acknowledging different sections of the society and making them feel valued.

2. Brings patient to the hospital and then back home

Since public transports or private vehicles are not built to accommodate patients with all kinds of physical disabilities, it gets difficult for such people to commute. This program offers a solution to the problem. In just one phone call, the patient can book a non-medical transportation vehicle to travel to the hospital and back home.

Customized software drives non-medical transportation companies, automating virtually all processes to ensure adherence to every customer’s specific protocols. A hi-tech phone system connects to the customer service center, making sure no call is dropped. Additionally, websites offer clients convenient access to resources, registration and information.

3. Affordable and cost saving

Using ambulances and other emergency services can cost a lot. As budgets tighten and need for transportation keeps on rising, non-emergency medical transportation helps customers do more with less. It offers fair rates and ensures the most cost-effective form of transportation.

Often delay in treatment can make the patients’ problems worse. The road to recovery requires being regular and being checked by the physician on a regular basis. Any complications can lead to delay in recovery and increase in overall costs. With this facility, all patients irrespective of their economic background and age, can stay more independent and meet their social and medical commitments easily.

However, when choosing a non-emergency medical transporter, make sure you opt for someone who thinks outside-the box to offer personalized solutions that cater to your unique needs. Some of the things to look for in a provider are,

  1. Air Conditioned Vehicles
  2. Condition of the vehicles
  3. Emergency and drop-In Care
  4. Event Standby
  5. Completely Insured
When reading reviews make sure you choose a provider that maintains industry-leading customer satisfaction and must be available twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, throughout the year.

Has Age Affected Your Driving?

For almost everyone, driving is an essential part of life. The ability to go where you want, when you want to, is important, but perhaps even more so is the feeling of independence that it creates. As long as we feel we can function independently, we are strong and confident. Take away this feeling of independence, and we feel weakened and insecure because we are dependent on others to take us where we want or need to go. Buses, taxis, and subways may not be workable alternatives because of mobility or other age-related problems, and the passenger does not feel he’s in control he when he’s not driving. This is something that many seniors feel when they stop driving . While there is no defined age at which a person must stop driving, there is no denying that increasing years and health issues affect a person’s ability to drive. The eyesight, strength, and reflexes of an 80 years old are not the same as when he/she was 18. Going to the DMV and getting a driving license renewed

Is It Time To Stop Driving?

A major problem with advancing years is the increasing difficulty in driving. Vision issues, reflexes, pains and infirmities all collude to make this essential part of life increasingly difficult. Besides the practical problems that not driving presents, there is also the depression that often sets in as you feel that your freedom has been curtailed. Continuing to drive when it is no longer safe to do so because of age-related issues is one of the major causes of accidents among senior citizens.
