Luna and Lyft Partner to Transform Physical Therapy
Driving faster recoveries by making patient care easier to give and receive
By Luna | October 11, 2018
Today, we are proud to announce our partnership with Lyft, the fastest growing rideshare company in the U.S. By combining these two industry leading on demand services, we’re aimed to transform patient care in outpatient physical therapy.
What does this mean for physical therapists and their patients?
This partnership enables physical therapists in urban areas to focus solely on patient care, at the patient’s home, by exclusively leveraging Lyft’s rideshare service.
How does it work?
Physical therapists who use Luna in urban areas are provided up to $500 per month in Lyft credits to travel to their patients.
Luna head of physical therapy services, Palak Shah, explains, “Imagine a world where the physical therapist completes their patient visit, walks out to a waiting Lyft, and is whisked away seamlessly to the next patient. No waiting, no traffic, no parking, no driving - just superior patient care. Similarly, patients receive exceptional care in the convenience and comfort of their homes.”
Why is this important?
The teams at Lyft and Luna know that technology-driven convenience make it possible for people to focus on their heath. With 70% of patients failing to complete their course of care, making it convenient to commit to physical therapy is essential. That's why Luna therapists see all of their patients at home. By making it easier to give and receive care, Lyft and Luna are driving faster recoveries for lasting health.
“We’re excited to work with Luna, a leading partner in on-demand physical therapy, to provide seamless transportation to therapists on the go,” said Gyre Renwick, VP of Lyft Business. “Partnering with Luna to offer a reliable, efficient and affordable mobility solution will not only improve the experience for therapists, but will also ensure that patients are able to receive superior care.”
