The new Access Dashboard – August 2023 provides visibility into Seattle Children’s ambulatory clinics’ wait times.  Page 1 lists wait times by specialty. Page 2 lists conditions or symptoms considered urgent for scheduling purposes.

The Access Dashboard can help community providers make decisions about referring to Seattle Children’s versus referring elsewhere or managing a patient in their medical home.

Algorithms and other clinical care resources
