Frontiers Health Global Conference 2022 

Session: Addressing Unequal Access to Digital Healthcare for People with Disabilities

When hospital websites and web-based tools, such as patient portals, are designed for people with a broad range of abilities it benefits everyone – including people without disabilities and older adults. However, many digital access barriers exist. This session will provide an overview of AHIMA Foundation’s research into the role of web accessibility in increasing the proportion of people who can equitably view, download, and send their electronic health information. From an accessibility program implementation and compliance perspective, the Disability Equity Collaborative will share challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned from ADA coordinators working in diverse healthcare organizations.
