43: Caring About Access

March 19, 2021


Why do Americans struggle getting access to health care? It's a big question, and a big problem. One with serious consequences. Despite the plethora of health care systems, services, practitioners, and technology available throughout the United States, for many people, access to care is frustratingly difficult and frequently includes long wait times. And too often, the care people are able to access doesn’t meet their needs and may not be the care they deserve. In this episode, nurse practitioner Wendy Wright, APRN, FAANP, examines a fresh model for primary care where access, time, presence, data, and innovation are key to how her nurse practitioner-led primary care clinics are meeting people where they are—even if that’s in the front seat of their car, under a tent, or in a parking lot!
