Guidebook and Research Plan to Help Communities Improve Transportation to Health Care Services

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. 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.
