How to accelerate the process to calculate the travel time and distance between two known locations?

Hi everyone,


I have a question regarding the route function of the network analysis tool on ArcGIS Pro. I have a dataset of 250,000 patients with their XY coordinates and their respective health center's XY coordinates. My goal is to find the travel time and distance for each patient to their assigned health centre. The issue that I am having is that I can only have 10,000 stops per route analysis run which represents 5,000 patients and their respective centres. Every time I run the analysis for a small batch of 5,000 patients, it takes me about 30-40 minutes and during that time I can't really use my computer for other purposes. Do you have any suggestions on how to accelerate this process? 


I read that I can use Python, but I am not very familiar with it.


Many thanks!
