|With 32 million people becoming eligible for health coverage in the coming years and an already strained primary care system with a shortage of primary care physicians, physician practices, clinics, hospitals and other providers of care will continue to look to enhance the use of nurse practitioners in the delivery of primary care services.
Studies have shown that nurse practitioners can add substantially to physician productivity and proper utilization of nurse practitioners will ultimately result in better quality and more coordinated care.
During The Emerging Role of Nurse Practitioners in Expanding Access, Enhancing Revenue, a 45-minute webinar on July 28th, Linda Lindeke, Ph.D., RN, and CNP, associate professor for the School of Nursing and Department of Pediatrics and director of Graduate Studies for the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota, will examine how nurse practitioners are being utilized in the physician practice, hospital and clinic settings to increase access to care and coordinate care for patients with chronic conditions.
You'll get details on:
- Responsibilities and training of nurse practitioners based on different state requirements;
- Coding and reimbursement for nurse practitioner-delivered services;
- Utilizing a nurse practitioner to improve quality reporting scores and increase revenue;
- Considerations for nurse practitioner delivered care; and
- The bottom line impact of a nurse practitioner program.
