About Us

The Patient Access Collaborative

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 a half a million to more than six million patient encounters a year.

The PAC not only shares ideas and data, we 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.

Annual Symposium

Each year, industry leaders from all across the country come together to share ideas on solving some of the most challenging aspects of patient access. Hosted by one of our members, the Patient Access Collaborative Symposium features workshops on access-related issues like scheduling optimization, patient experience and referral management, followed by the host institution’s showcase of access initiatives.  To learn more about our annual symposium click here.  For all materials from our Children's Hospital Access Collaborative's symposia click here.
