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.

This invitation-only community consists of leaders from academic health systems and children’s hospitals across the nation. Together, our members operate multi-specialty ambulatory enterprises that manage anywhere from half a million to more than six million patient encounters a year. Collectively, one out of every five outpatient encounters in the United States is performed by one of our members today.

The PAC not only shares ideas and data, but we also share a passion for patients. Behind everything we do is the philosophy that nothing should impede a patient’s access to the services they need. And without a concerted effort to keep that path short and clear, the value we provide our patients will diminish.
