Lyft Hires First VP of Healthcare

Since 2016, Lyft has been focused on reimagining the way healthcare organizations and their patients get around. We know that over 3.6 million people can’t get the care they need due to a lack of transportation every year — an issue we are uniquely positioned to address through our work with thousands of healthcare organizations.

As we look to the future, Lyft is excited to announce our first Vice President of Healthcare, Megan Callahan. Megan will lead the strategic direction and expansion of Lyft’s healthcare business, spearheading the development of innovative services and technology to better collaborate with our growing base of healthcare partners. Megan brings more than two decades of experience from across the healthcare industry, serving most recently as Chief Strategy Officer at Change Healthcare, and as Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy & Business Development at McKesson prior to that.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Lyft to build on the impressive foundation and momentum the team has already established, becoming the top transportation choice for thousands of healthcare organizations across the country,” says Megan. “During this time of incredible growth, we have a unique opportunity to drive meaningful impact by reducing the healthcare transportation gap for patients, which is a key factor in improving social determinants of health and lowering costs.”

We look forward to expanding our existing relationships with key partners across the entire healthcare ecosystem, including the premier payers, providers, health systems, and transportation brokers, in addition to launching new initiatives as we continue to expand our work in this space.

By the numbers:

  • 9 — the number of top healthcare systems in the US that partner with Lyft

  • 50 — the number of states where Lyft provides healthcare rides, plus Washington D.C.

  • 10 — the number of leading non-emergency medical transportation brokers that partner with Lyft

  • 7.2 million — the number of patients that will have access to Lyft rides through our exclusive integration with AllScripts, one of the nation’s top electronic healthcare records systems

  • 28,000 — the number of additional rides Anthem’s CareMore Health was able to provide at no added cost by partnering with Lyft in 2017, as a result of a 39% decrease in per-ride costs (source).

  • 27% — the drop in missed appointments during a pilot with Hitch Health (source).
