Latest Update 4/7/2016: SAN FRANCISCO — Uber is giving four Bay Area drivers a $1,000 boost to pursue passion projects focused on helping women in their communities.

 The winners, which Uber is set to announce publicly Thursday, have ambitious goals that include giving a voice to local sex-trafficking victims, teaching entrepreneurial skills to stay-at-home moms, and providing in-home care for seniors.
 In honor of Women’s History Month in March, Uber invited its 40,000 Bay Area drivers to share their women-centered ideas on crowdfunding website Indiegogo. Uber received 150 applications, and a pair of judges from the venture capital and nonprofit worlds then chose the winners. The goal was to jump-start some of the side projects Uber drivers work on when they aren’t shuttling passengers to and from their destinations, said Wayne Ting, Uber’s Bay Area general manager.
 “There’s so many entrepreneurs on the platform who use Uber so they can do something else that they care about,” Ting said in an interview.
 In addition to $1,000 each in seed funding, the winners will be able to use the massive Uber network to leverage their ideas. The company will email its riders about the four winners, linking to their Indiegogo pages.

When we want to grab a taxi, receive a pizza or rent-a-house in a different country, it is always a demand driven process. Ordered and purchased by the individual at the time we want or need it!

For several reasons healthcare hasn’t been able to catch up with these developments, which is if we look how technology and innovations have been implemented in the past not a surprise. There are long waits for clinics, surgery and at A&E, which have been developed over the years by poor implementation of LEAN and the aim of driving operating costs down.

However, the time has come where we can measure and almost predict real demand for healthcare services. Technology can help in streamlining the process and cutting out human factors and therefore reduce many of the overhead costs.
