The Impact of Mobile Health Vans: Part Three


In our second blog about covering the impacts of Mobile Health Vans, we discussed the differences between the traditionally large mobile health vans and a more compact design with both a smaller footprint and price tag.

Mobile health vans have are most impactful when they deliver care to vulnerable populations, including:

  • People experiencing poverty or homelessness
  • Minority groups
  • Rural communities
  • Veterans
  • Immigrants


Serving Remote, Rural, and High-Risk Communities

The ability for a Mobile Medical Van to easily penetrate high-risk communities reduces hospital wait times and minimizes travel costs for persons needing access to health services. Medical vans are known to improve health service outcomes overall, especially when offering primary or preventative care. Some of the most successful health services offered by mobile medical vans include:

  • Screening
  • Vaccination
  • Health checkups
  • Medication management
  • Mental health counselling
  • Prenatal services
  • Smoking cessation
  • Minor injury treatment
  • Chronic condition management
  • Prevention
  • Pediatrics
  • Dental
  • Vision


As most of these services would be conducted in an examination room without specialized equipment, it’s fair to say that most of these services could be provided through a Mobile Medical Van. It offers a more cost-effective delivery of important health services.

Primary and Preventative Health Care

Designed to support primary and preventative care, smaller mobile medical vans such as those manufactured by MoveMobility are essentially an exam room on wheels. Watch a quick overview of the key functions of the mobile medical van:


We acknowledge that some applications require a larger mobile medical clinic vehicle, such as x-rays, mammography services, or procedures requiring multiple exam rooms. However, in most use cases mentioned above, the health care assistance can be provided through a compact, resource-friendly Mobile Medical Van.
