Syneos Health and Ride Health Partner to Improve Clinical Trial Recruitment and Retention

Syneos Health has announced a partnership with Ride Health to offer non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) to clinical trial participants. The collaboration, built on product integration between Ride Health and the Syneos Health patient engagement platform, will enable a comprehensive transportation program for Syneos Health trials in the U.S., with a goal of expanding access. Additionally, Syneos Health made a minority investment in Ride Health as part of the strategic relationship.

Ride Health’s national transportation network integrates ride-hailing services, taxi aggregators, and higher-touch NEMT operators to provide transportation across a trial’s multi-state site footprint. The platform matches each patient’s needs to the appropriate transportation mode across standard curbside pickup, door-to-door assistance, and wheelchair accessible vehicles. Ride Health’s solution then directly connects each stakeholder through its automated communication and support systems, allowing Syneos Health to reduce the coordination burden for site staff.
