Can you remember the last time you were sick and unable to schedule an appointment at your doctor's office? All too often, patients in need of non-life threatening medical attention end up in the emergency room. These patients are then treated in an emergency care setting when they could be treated more appropriately within their medical practice.

 
"This unfortunate and avoidable scenario takes place too frequently in healthcare," said Robert Johnston, Vice President of Ambulatory Services and Clinical Integration at Appalachian Regional Healthcare System (ARHS). "In response to patient feedback and discussions with patients in the community, we are working diligently to provide same-day patient access at select outpatient practice locations."
 
ARHS has implemented same-day access for patients at The Cardiology Center in Boone, NC; Baker Center for Primary Care in Linville, NC; and Appalachian Regional Internal Medical Specialists in Boone, NC. "Patient access is a vital component of patient care, outcomes and patient satisfaction," said Johnston. "We hope that these changes will help better serve patients when they need access to care."
