Physicians' Innovation Network (PIN)

Have you ever volunteered in a free medical clinic? I have. Our country definitely needs more charity clinics throughout the country.  If you want to volunteer, you may want to get involved with the PIN.

Physicians' Innovation Network (PIN) exists to assist communities across the nation with establishing and sustaining coordinated systems of charity care based on the Project Access model developed in Asheville/Buncombe County, NC and adapted in communities nationwide.

Physicians' Innovation Network (PIN) is a national, nonprofit organization serving communities that utilize the Project Access system to coordinate physician charity care for low-income, uninsured people. Project Access provides an effective means to enhance access to care and improve the health of this population.
PIN uses the Buncombe County Medical Society Project Access charity healthcare model developed in Asheville, NC–and others that have been replicated from it–to help guide communities through their own transformational processes. More than 50 communities, with populations ranging in size from 22,000 to over 1 million have successfully adopted the Project Access model to their unique circumstances. Dozens more are actively working to implement the coordinated charity care system.
