In healthcare, access to care is a very important issue. The definition of healthcare access centers around the ability of a person to obtain healthcare services to prevent, diagnose, treat, and/or manage disease, illnesses, disorders, and other health related conditions. Access has become a major problem for low-income and rural communities. Temple University Health System also known as Temple Health, is located in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. North Philadelphia is home to a predominantly minority, low-socioeconomic community, Medicaid and Medicare payor mix. Increasing access to improve the quality of patient care for vulnerable populations is at the center of all Temple Health initiatives which has a significant impact on public health as a whole. My three residency projects center around the theme of increasing healthcare access for the North Philadelphia community. Through establishing a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Mobile Dental Program, investing in an Ambulatory Surgery Center, and the Chestnut Hill Hospital acquisition, Temple Health will continue its mission of providing quality care and increasing access to the patients and community of North Philadelphia.
