  Project Data
Funds: $200,000
Research Agency: KFH Group
Principal Investigator: Ken Hosen
Effective Date: 10/16/2017
Completion Date: 9/30/2020

BACKGROUND  

Effective transportation to health care services addresses the patient experience in traveling to and from health care and helps to ensure patient access to services that lead to better health outcomes. Successful collaborations between the health care and transportation sectors have emerged in communities across the country. Better understanding of these collaborations may benefit other communities. However, the complexities intrinsic to the transportation and healthcare sectors make collaboration between the sectors challenging.  

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of this research were to (1) develop a guidebook to help communities improve transportation to health care. The guidebook should serve three important audiences—the health care sector, the transportation sector, and other stakeholders—and help them lay the foundation for building effective relationships to improve customer-focused mobility services, and (2)  develop a research plan that outlines future research priorities. 

STATUS
 
The research is complete and the final deliverable has been released as pre-publication draft report TCRP Research Report 223: Guidebook and Research Plan to Help Communities Improve Transportation to Health Care Services. The pre-publication draft report is available here: http://www.trb.org/Policy/Blurbs/181416.aspx. The final edited report will be published and released in early 2021.
