TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) has released a pre-publication, non-edited version of Research Report 203: Dialysis Transportation: Intersection of Transportation and Healthcare. The report responds to major concerns of public transportation agencies about the rising demand and costs to provide kidney dialysis trips and about experiences showing these trips require service more specialized than public transportation is designed to provide.
The report documents the complicated relationship of two different industries—public transportation and healthcare, each with its own perspective and requirements—to highlight problems, identify strategies addressing concerns, and suggest options that may be more appropriate for dialysis transportation.
Accompanying the report are a supplemental report and Excel spreadsheet. The Supplemental Report includes, along with a literature review and results from the project’s surveys, an assessment of the comprehensive data provided by the U.S. Renal Data System. The community data tool is an Excel forecasting tool.
