Valley Regional Transit successfully powers the Rides2Wellness program with WellRyde by nuVizz

Posted by admin

Valley Regional Transit has successfully implemented WellRyde software to manage their Rides2Wellness program. Rides2Wellness is an effort to break down transportation barriers by providing rides to those with various medical conditions. The program’s goal is to keep them from being re-admitted to the hospital. Valley Regional Transit in partnership with medical centers like St. Luke’s and Saint Alphonsus, provided over 25,000 rides with the Rides2Wellness program since 2016. The program is funded by Valley Regional Transit and participating hospitals.

Currently, Rides2wellness is offered to patients in Boise, Meridian and Eagle in Ada County. Valley Regional Transit is planning to expand the service into Canyon County.

Prior to utilizing WellRyde, Valley Regional Transit entered all data manually. With WellRyde software, Help Desk staff can now book ride requests, set up schedules to automatically create recurring trips and allow transportation providers to access trip requests from the WellRyde portal. Valley Regional Transit staff are now able to focus on streamlining the entire booking to completion process.

“We are proud to partner with Valley Regional Transit and provide them with a reliable technology platform that helps streamline the entire program. Now they are successfully able to setup recurring rides or book trips from our trip booking feature while taking calls from customers and allow its providers to claim trips from the portal for completion,” said Veda Ramachandran, Vice President, Customer Success. “Regional transit solutions play an important role in serving the community and enhancing the healthcare transportation reach. WellRyde is excited to bring the much-needed mainstream technology to this ecosystem.”

“We have been very happy with the transition to using the WellRyde software,” said Leslie Pedrosa, VRT Operations Director. “It makes scheduling rides much easier for our staff and allows our transportation providers easy access to ride requests.”
