Within healthcare, many patients are faced with significant barriers preventing their receipt of care, with the largest of these impacts being socioeconomic. Community based care plays a critical role in overcoming many of these barriers to healthcare and providing a more wholistic health for the community as a whole. This discussion focuses on understanding the various barriers and experiences faced when seeking care, sharing proactive rather than reactive solutions and providing opportunities for discussion on the role design professionals play in addressing these issues.
