One Call Announces Expansion of RelayRIDE Program to Veteran Organizations
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (June 6, 2019) – One Call, the nation’s leading provider of specialized healthcare solutions for the workers’ compensation industry, today announced the successful implementation of its ride-sharing service, RelayRIDESM, with Patriot Services Group, a Florida-based non-profit that helps homeless veterans and their families nationwide obtain affordable housing, transportation and other supportive services.
RelayRIDESM uses proprietary technology that automatically assigns sedan transportation referrals through the ridesharing platform Lyft. Through this technology, veterans will be able to request free and independent transportation to and from medical appointments, employment and educational opportunities, and other necessary trips.
The partnership with Patriot Services Group opens the door to offering RelayRIDESM – a transportation program originally developed for the worker’s compensation industry to help injured workers get to and from medical appointments – to other veteran organizations, and beyond.
“We’re primed to take this technology to other sectors,” said Joe McCullough, senior vice president of product management for One Call. “From veterans to the elderly, we have many examples of how RelayRIDESM is helping people regain health, independence, employment, and best of all, a quality life.”
