Ride Health CEO Imran Cronk to Present at South by Southwest Alongside Leaders from American Heart Association and Ascension
Company also exhibiting cloud-based transportation coordination platform at RISE Medicare Advantage Summit and AMGA Annual Conference

NEW YORK, March 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ride Health, coordinating smarter transportation for every patient need, announced that CEO and Founder Imran Cronk will speak on the topic of health disparities in cardiovascular care at the South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference & Festivals on March 16. Ride Health leaders will also exhibit the company's cloud-based, mobile-first and real-time transportation coordination platform at two major healthcare conferences this month.

Cronk joins a prestigious panel of senior leaders from provider organizations and healthcare associations at SXSW. The panel, "Mending the Disparity Gap in Cardiovascular Care," (March 16, 3:30pm EST) will include Tamarah Duperval-Brownlee, MD, Senior Vice President and Chief Community Impact Officer of Ascension; Pamela Garmon Johnson, National Vice-President, Health Equity and Impact Partnerships, the American Heart Association; and Russ Johannesson, CEO of Glooko, a diabetes management company. They will examine how the same forward thinking that has resulted in a decline in heart disease can also impact the pervasive disparities in care that cause higher rates of mortality among African Americans and other groups.

Ride Health partners with health plans and providers to ensure that heart disease patients, along with other patients, have access to critical follow-up care in a timely manner by making transportation simple and affordable no matter the patient need.  With system integration capabilities across various EHR, CRM and care management platforms, care coordination teams at health systems and health plans across the country use the Ride Health platform to seamlessly request and monitor rides from a broad network of high-performing non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT)  providers, including Uber, taxis, public transit, wheelchair-accessible vehicles (WAV) and ambulances.

Ride Health's technology-enabled, human-driven approach to ride support has been proven to deliver faster response times, an improved patient experience and a meaningful reduction in delays and no-shows.
