December 15, 2021 / Source: U.S. Access Board

People with disabilities face ​many barriers to accessing healthcare. It is important for medical care facilities and equipment, such as exam rooms and tables, diagnostic instruments and machines, and patient bedrooms and bathrooms, to be fully accessible to people with disabilities.

The U.S. Access Board will host an online event on equity in healthcare for people with disabilities on January 12, 2022 from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. (ET).

The event will have presentations on standards and resources related to healthcare accessibility, including inclusive medical equipment, healthcare facility design, information technology, and communication devices and systems. Members of the public will be able to ask questions during the event.
