Want to improve telehealth? Ask people with disabilities.
“The tech industry needs to invest in developing platforms and devices with active, consistent, and frequent input from the disability community. This input must reflect a range of individuals with disabilities. A variety of identities exist beyond disability status. Overlooking this diversity will continue to exacerbate telehealth disparities based on overlapping factors such as age, primary language, internet access, and more.
Policymakers must welcome people with disabilities to voice their needs for care. Teal on the Hill, focusing on individuals with Spina Bifida, is one example of people with disabilities and their advocates annually voicing their needs to legislators. The American Association of People with Disabilities has sent public letters to Senate Majority and Minority leaders regarding what will benefit the disability community during the pandemic and beyond.”
They share their stories and discuss the KevinMD article, “Want to improve telehealth? Ask people with disabilities.”
