Roundtrip and ACS Collaborate to Offer a Ride to Treatment for Cancer Patients

Roundtrip is an easy, comprehensive patient ride ordering software that connects patients with non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT).

FREMONT, CA: Roundtrip, the leading technology solution for patient transportation, declares the addition of the US's largest health-focused charity, the American Cancer Society, as a partner.

Every day, so many cancer patients need a ride to treatment, but some may not have a way to get there. The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program offers transportation to and from treatment for people suffering from cancer who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Together, Roundtrip and ACS will collaborate to ease the stressful process of transportation coordination and enable patients to focus on what is most important – their care and recovery.

Roundtrip is an easy, comprehensive patient ride ordering software that connects patients with non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT). Roundtrip supports all levels of transport: volunteer drivers, ALS/BLS ambulances, taxi, medical cars, rideshare, wheelchair vans, stretcher vehicles, all payers, and all trips delivered when and where they are needed.

"In a time where the logistics of cancer treatment have been made even more challenging, we are thrilled to partner with the American Cancer Society to deliver a positive transportation experience for the patients we collectively serve along with the valued volunteer drivers who make the program possible. Transportation looks very different for vulnerable populations and, furthermore, specific disease states. Together, we can show the incredible impacts to health outcomes among the hardest hit," stated Mark Switaj, CEO of Roundtrip.

Roundtrip allows patients to easily request single or recurring rides depending on their unique cancer care needs. As a consequence, patients who would have ordinarily missed appointments because of the lack of transportation have one less stressor in their journey to recovery.
