Redefining Access: The Role of Transportation in Access to Health Care. As health care systems pay closer attention to the costs associated with caring for patients, they are turning to social factors that impact overall health. The lack of transportation can be a leading barrier to accessing care and can cause an overuse of emergency services. Stakeholders from across the health and transportation spectrum will discuss the role of transportation as a social determinant of health and provide local examples of how transportation can work with health care providers to support overall community health.
