57% of hospital executives rank improving ambulatory access as No. 1 concern

We have a lot of data which indicates it is really not an access issues in metroplex settings (access is more of a factor in rural settings). But, rather, it is an issue of utilization. We can place a clinic on the corner of every block in American and it will not increase utilization. The barrier to healthcare utilization is not an issue of geographic distance, but rather psychological distance. We can place a clinic in everyone's back yard, but psychologically that clinic might as well be on Mars.
