Access Physicians

Access Physicians is a multispecialty physician group that connects patients, nurses, and doctors through telemedicine. Access Physicians' clinical programs complement existing physician workforces to deliver comprehensive care while improving clinical and financial outcomes. AP combines scalable clinical programs, elite physicians, and the latest telemedicine tools to help health systems systematically improve acute care so patients and their care teams get the support they need, when they need it, in their own community. Through a long history of providing inpatient telemedicine care, AP offers three distinct and necessary pieces of a robust telemedicine program: high quality technology, elite physicians, and unparalleled strategic guidance (aka program design). While optimally delivered together, AP is also able to offer any of these pieces individually or in combination so as to meet the needs of all hospitals.
