New Feature: Pharmacy Stops On The Way Home From The Hospital

Susanna Arntz

Here at Roundtrip, we often speak about transportation as a common barrier to care on the first leg of the trip –getting to the hospital, a doctor’s appointment, or ongoing treatment. But transportation is also a barrier to getting home.

Hospital discharges can be complicated and challenging for both patients and physicians because of the necessary coordination of many moving parts.

Healthcare professionals steadily prioritize patient safety and medication adherence as top of mind for improving health outcomes. With the shift to value-based care, improving post-discharge care is gaining even more importance, as well.

Patients who have transportation needs getting to and from the hospital often also have issues getting to and from the pharmacy or other medical supplies pick-up centers.

That’s why we created the “Add A Stop” feature to Roundtrip.

This allows for post-discharge pharmacy stops and other multi-stop trips for all types of transportation except for Lyft within Roundtrip.

Here’s how it works:

We are excited to launch this new feature. We believe this enhancement has the power to patient satisfaction, medical adherence and make continued care more accessible and seamless for more patients.
