COCOA, Fla., Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AVO T&L, LLC and Uber Health today announced a national partnership that pairs the Uber platform with one of the fastest growing non-emergent transportation brokers in the workers’ compensation space. The deal underscores how, more than ever before, AVO is leveraging the power of technology to provide real time visibility to all aspects of the transport, leading to enhanced transparency for our clients.

The multi-faceted partnership includes a variety of benefits designed to enhance the accessibility of rideshare to injured employees. “The traditional workers’ compensation transportation model is severely outdated. Every patient’s experience begins and ends with their ride, and the amount of trip information is severely limited,” AVO co-founder Robert Jarvis said. AVO’s president Fred Schafer added that the partnership brings insurance carriers and employers “a modern-day option for their non-emergency medical transportation needs and can now request an Uber when they need one.”

Cost savings are inherent with using Uber Health, “Covering rush requests brings a new dimension to the industry with the addition of Uber” said Robert Jarvis. “Now we can fulfill those requests that come in at the last minute by leveraging the Uber network and platform.”

The deal also includes the ability for AVO to schedule future transports with Uber Health. Ride notifications can be sent to injured workers via phone, text or email. AVO’s platform also has tracking functionality that can be customized by client needs.

“We are pleased to partner with AVO and further our work to deliver quality and cost-effective non-emergency medical transportation,” stated Dan Trigub, Head of Uber Health. “By further integrating our technology, we can help drive down healthcare costs and aim to improve patient outcomes.”

AVO T&L, LLC is a privately held, and internally managed transportation and language services provider. For more information, please visit: www.chooseavo.com or email Matt Walker at sales@chooseavo.com.
