Health care accessibility

Hello all,

It seems accessibility has a healthy presence and visibility in Education. We have conferences about making education in general more accessible. We have collaboration groups on how to make online courses accessible.

It seems health care isn't there yet. Is it just my impression? There are plenty of health care-related conferences, but they don't center around accessibility. At least not that I can tell.

Are there people on this mailing list tasked with making health IT accessible? Is there potential here to collaborate and get health care to the level education is? If I'm under the wrong impression re: health and accessibility, please—let me know where to turn to. In the meantime, I'd like to discuss some of the challenges around making health IT accessible.
