This Startup Is Breaking Down the Transportation Barrier in Healthcare

Kaizen has partnered with Lyft to get patients to healthcare providers cheaply, reducing patient discharge times and missed or late appointments for providers.

Every year 3.6 million Americans miss or delay medical treatment due to a lack of transportation, and every year missed appointments cost our country $150B. Mindi Knebel discovered this problem when, over the course of a month, both sides of her family in rural Iowa and in urban Chicago were unable to find affordable, reliable transportation to access healthcare.
