The Patient Access Collaborative

Improving patient access to ambulatory care through collaboration, expertise, and passion.

Since 2011, the Patient Access Collaborative has provided a forum for the nation’s largest and most prestigious health systems to discuss and advance initiatives that can vastly improve patient access to ambulatory care.
