University of Miami President Donna E. Shalala, Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell: Nurse Practitioners Are Key to Obama Health Care Reform, Call for Increased Federal Funding for Innovative Nurse-Managed Health Care
Date:5/8/2009

t of the "medical home" be expanded to include nurse-led practices.
  • Create More Efficient Infrastructure for Health Care Administration. Even though the process of provider credentialing is essentially the same for every insurer, providers must submit multiple credentialing applications to all insurers in his or her market. A unified credentialing clearinghouse for all health care providers could reduce or eliminate unnecessary delays and redundancies in the credentialing process. This could reduce administrative costs in health centers by 25 percent.
  • Increase Opportunities for Health IT Implementation. Nurse practitioners and Nurse-Managed Health Centers must have the same opportunities as other providers to take part in initiatives designed to improve primary care outcomes. To achieve this, the government must fund Health IT initiatives outside of its existing funding frameworks, which tend to focus on physician-led practices and existing FQHCs. Given the nation's growing shortage of primary care physicians, it is critical that the government ensures that Nurse-Managed Health Centers have access to incentives that would allow them to implement new Health IT initiatives and improve quality of care for their patients.
  • Invite New Players to Join the Health Reform Discussion. Nurse practitioners are the fastest growing group of primary care professionals in the country. Although nurse-managed care models are a relatively new movement in health care, they reach large numbers of patients throughout the country. These providers have new ideas that promise to increase the accessibility and affordability of health care in the United States. Without their voices at the health reform table, we may lose the opportunity to implement a more interdisciplinary, team-based model of health care.
