Nurse-Led Care Survey: Identifying High-Performing Practices

Nov 27, 2018

Nurse-led care improves patient outcomes and produces value. Time to prove it!

By the end of 2016, 85 percent of Medicare fee-for-service payments were meant to be tied to quality or value, with 90 percent by 2018. As we continue to see changes to health care delivery and reimbursement, particularly a transition to value-based care, it’s more important than ever to demonstrate the value nurse-led care can bring to these new care management strategies.

National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC) and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) are working together to identify high-performing practices on behalf of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as part of our work on the Nurse Practitioner Support and Alignment Network (NP SAN). CMS is developing a registry of high-performing practices to support movement towards value-based reimbursement structures at the public and private level. This is our chance to highlight the critical role nurse-leadership plays in practice transformation.

A high-performing practice is one that should meet the following criteria:

  • Sets bold aims related to patient health and value and meets those aims
  • Engages patients and families in their care
  • Advances critical aspects of nurse leadership and nurse-led care

Does Your Practice Meet These Criteria?

If your practice is selected, it will be recognized by CMS in a federal registry. This is a unique opportunity to share your success story with providers, patients and payers.
