Extra Care for Dialysis Patients in Chicagoland
Arranging transportation for yourself, a family member or your patient to and from dialysis appointments can be challenging, and it’s important to know your options to support their transportation needs.
Rely on accessible non-emergency medical transportation with BriteLift to fill in the need. Patients experience a comfortable and convenient ride to and from their recurring medical appointments.
The Need for Accessible NEMT for Dialysis Patients
For dialysis patients, good health depends largely on reliable transportation. Dialysis patients require the support of others to get to and from their dialysis treatments.
Data from Kidney.org showed that 66.8% of patients get to be driven around, including by ambulance. Nearly 8% use public transportation, such as bus, subway train, or taxi, while only 25.3% drive themselves or just walk to the clinic.
While Chicagoland is a relatively accessible area, these numbers are very telling of the necessity for reliable transportation for dialysis patients.
