Public Dialysis Transport Efficiency Using Digital Media

The provision of paratransit services for patients needing dialysis is vital to patient maintenance. The availability of paratransit services varies in North Carolina counties depending on federal, state and local funding. Because these resources are limited, it is important to use available technologies to maximize resource usage. A survey was developed and administered to paratransit county administrators. Results of the preliminary data analysis showed that the use of technologies increased as the number of available dialysis centers increased. Counties also invested in more technologies as their feelings about funding adequacy for investments in general and from federal sources increased. Finally, those counties that felt they would be able to keep up with demand for dialysis services in the future tended to invest in more technologies.
