Medical Transport Services: organising patient mobility in France
Our in-depth knowledge of medical transport, a key link in the healthcare chain, makes us the ideal partner for healthcare establishments enabling them to focus on their core business while keeping health insurance costs under control.
That is why we developed our healthcare mobility services offer (Santé Mobilité Services or SMS); a two-pronged solution comprising: Optimos, which offers support to healthcare establishments, and Carius, a network dedicated to medical transport professionals. SMS is an initiative involving the Transdev Group and independent professional players in the medical transport sector.
