Patient Action Network


Improve patient access to care

Learn about issues, such as drug price transparency and telemedicine, that affect patient health, share your stories and notify your lawmakers in Congress to make a difference.

More than 1 million patient activists have joined the Patients' Action Network, which began in 2004 in response to legislative issues that the AMA feared would harm the patient-doctor relationship and restrict patients' access to health care.

The Patients' Action Network enables the growing base of patients to take appropriate action on important health care issues. View stories from doctors and patients across the country and share your own experiences. Understand issues affecting patients and make your voice heard in Washington, DC.
