How PAs and NPs Help Patient Visit Growth Goals

February 20th, 2013 0 Min read How PAs and NPs Help Patient Visit Growth Goals Blog
With an estimated 30 million newly insured patients expected under Affordable Care Act changes, independent practice groups and hospitals alike are finding new ways to grow, including increased hiring of physician assistants and nurse practitioners. I recently wrote about this in depth over at Advance for NPs & PAs. Whether choosing to grow organically or simply keeping up with patient demand, the "team approach" to delivery of care is a major factor to consider. Check back with my CompHealth blogs throughout this year for updates on:
  • PA & NP Myths: What can or can't they do? How can employers prepare for staffing them?
  • PA & NP Careers: What are the key choices for getting your ideal job?
  • Healthcare Reform: What reform measures commence in 2014 and how will they impact our professions?
2013 is a big year for strategic preparation - will the medical community be ready for it?
