Improving Patient Access to Care

Though access is a top priority, there’s no playbook to follow, and designing an access-optimized infrastructure is a complex puzzle that keeps changing form.
In this webconference series, Advisory Board experts discuss the various functions that go into an advanced access-to-care strategy. From tackling the multidisciplinary challenges of patient access to utilizing access-to-care metrics, our series will inspire you to truly advance patient access to care in the ambulatory setting.
