As each new health care need arises, an individual's first point of contact with the health care system is typically his or
her personal doctor. In most cases a personal doctor can effectively and efficiently manage a patient's medical care because
they understand that person's medical history and social background. Having a regular source of health care is also an indicator
of overall access to care.
