The Project Access model of connecting physician volunteers in the community with low-income, uninsured patients began in 1996 in Asheville, NC. Patients are seen in the specialist’s office or hospital, allowing comprehensive care to be delivered in an appropriate setting.
Project Access was started in 2007 in Clark County. Several local physicians observed a lack of access to specialists for uninsured patients in the area. In 2013, the program enrolled 1,011 patients and coordinated 3,353 appointments.
