Tools and Resources
CHLM offers a range of tools and resources to help hospitals and health systems understand how to better utilize PAs and NPs. This includes ensuring organizations are in compliance with associated rules and regulations, helping to calculate PA/NP productivity and understanding the financial implications of this specialized workforce. CHLM also provides case studies on PA and NP utilization and leadership structures as potential models when considering organizational change.
Organizational PA and NP Policy Considerations
This booklet, available for purchase from the AAPA store, provides a review of compliance and clinical policy considerations using federal rules and regulations and a business case study to help users better understand PA and NP scope of practice.
This interactive tool was designed to help those that manage PAs and NPs assess productivity and the financial implications of their workforce. As institutions continue to grow their PA and NP workforce and as value-based reimbursement moves to the forefront, calculating productivity becomes increasingly important.
The worksheets produce a productivity snapshot for one provider. They serve as a tool to practice productivity analysis patterns and allow the user to see the impact of a few changes to billing practices.
The worksheets include default inputs and assumptions based on CHLM’s research, Medicare reimbursement data, and secondary literature, and allows users to adjust inputs to reflect their own circumstances.
Designed to provide leaders and managers a resource when considering the development of an organization-specific assessment, this tool includes core competencies for PAs and NPs as well as sample competencies drawn from a specialty or department-specific practice.
As health systems evaluate the functionality and effectiveness of their systems and processes, it can be helpful to consider models found at other employers. We offer case studies as examples to review when considering organizational changes.
