HOW TRC WORKS?
When patient is ready to be discharged, ASC front desk selects TRC Chaperoned Ride button on Ride Share Health Dashboard.
Rideshare App automatically transmits patient’s name and pickup and destination addresses to TRC Control System, which notifies Chaperone that patient is Ready.
Chaperone Greets Patient
Chaperone greets patient in the ASC waiting area.
Chaperone requests a ride using TRC Mobile App.
Chaperone escorts patient to the waiting car.
Chaperone accompanies patient on ride home and ensures their safe exit from the car.

Return to Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC)

Unified e-Invoicing & Payment
Monthly, TRC transmits Unified e-Invoice to ASC, detailing Ride Share and TRC Chaperone charges for each ride, and total owed to each. ASC separately pays RIde Share Company and TRC.
