Healthcare Transportation Services: How Technology and Shared Mobility are Changing Options and Behavior
UNC at Chapel Hill, Department Chair, Thomas Willis Lambeth Distinguished Professor, Director of Carolina Transportation Program
Transportation barriers prevent millions of people from accessing healthcare every year. Care providers are partnering with shared mobility services such as Uber and Lyft to establish new ways for patients to travel to and from medical appointments. This talk will look at the models that are emerging, analyze related policy changes that encourage new approaches, and consider the connections to traditional paratransit options.
This event is made possible through a partnership with OSU Office of Outreach and Engagement, OSU Center for Human Ethics and Values, OSU Corporate Engagement Office, OSU Office of Energy and Environment, and OSU Sustainable and Resilient Economy Initiative.
