Organizational PA and NP Policy Considerations
Available for purchase, this booklet provides a review of compliance and clinical policy considerations using federal rules and regulations and a business case study on PA and NP scope of practice.
Operational Visibility Worksheets
This interactive tool was designed to help those managing PAs and NPs assess productivity and the financial implications of their workforce. It can also be used by PAs and NPs to assess their individual productivity.
Use the worksheets to produce a productivity snapshot for one provider. They include default inputs and assumptions based on CHLM’s research, Medicare reimbursement data, and secondary literature, which can be adjusted to reflect individual user circumstances. They can be used to practice productivity analysis patterns and see the impact of a few changes to billing practices. Calculating productivity becomes increasingly important with the growth of both value-based reimbursement and PA and NP workforces.
Sample Competency Assessment Tool
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 you evaluate the functionality and effectiveness of your organization’s systems and processes, it can be helpful to consider models found at other employers. CHLM’s case studies in areas such as leadership structure and PA and NP utilization can spark ideas when considering changes at your institution.
If compliance concerns keep you up at night, this ten-question assessment on legal and regulatory issues relating to PA and NP utilization can help you better understand your organization’s compliance position.
