Improving access to health services means increasing the timely, appropriate use of personal health services to achieve the best possible health outcomes. Access requires patients to complete three steps: (1) gain entry into the health care system; (2) access a health care location where needed services are provided; and (3) find a health care provider the patient can trust. Healthy People 2020 calls upon the Nation to find innovative and effective ways to improve access to health services by addressing each of the three steps. This will require changes at all levels of the health care system—from policy to the patient. [Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion]
