AIM was a success! Overall access improved, clerical staff is now scheduling patients (versus the nurses) and offices are re-arranged to decrease the disruptions, increase space and ease the finding of materials.

I get very positive feedback from patients about their ability to get an appointment in a timely fashion and to be seen in the clinic more or less on time.

We have learned how to manage our panel sizes and our appointment times, and AIM has gotten us to a point where we can be more responsive to patients.
