Providing—and Proving—the Best Patient Care

American Association of Nurse Practitioners - Quality Improvement

You already provide top-quality care to your patients, but by 2019, Medicare Part B payments will be tied to quality reporting, resource use and meaningful use of electronic health records (EHR)—and private insurers are sure to follow this trend.

Nurse Practitioner Support and Alignment Network (NP SAN)

NP SAN is a robust program supporting CMS’s Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI)—the largest federal investment designed to support NPs with upcoming changes to health care delivery and reimbursement.

Advanced Payment Models

The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) initiated the transition from fee-for-service to a quality-based Medicare reimbursement structure. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has continued to build on to that framework through the creation of other alternative payment models. AANP has you covered with the news and tools you need to successfully navigate this transition.
