The Critical Role of Advanced Practice Clinicians

Posted by VISTA Staffing on Mar 4, 2020 11:00:00 AM

In the evolving world of healthcare, advanced practice clinicians are poised to play an important role in helping fill physician shortages at hospitals and other medical centers in underserved areas.

In medicine, institutional goals use three primary measures – clinical, financial, and operational – and there is a tradeoff if you have limited resources and staffing. For instance, increasing patient satisfaction (clinical) may decrease throughput (operational) as you devote more time and energy to each individual person. Increasing your facility’s capacity (operational) can be costly and undermine the hospital’s finances (financial).

Key Elements of Advanced Practice Provider Integration

Posted by VISTA Staffing on Feb 17, 2020 9:30:00 AM

By the year 2025, industry analysts predict the healthcare industry will undergo major shifts, including a noticeable gap in the number of available health care providers. A combination of more insured patients, an aging population, a rise in the number of veterans with medical issues, and a shortage of doctors pose challenges to an already stressed system. Advanced practice providers like nurse practitioners and physician assistants are vital to helping close the gap between patient demand and provider supply.

However, attracting skilled advanced practice providers is only half the battle. Retaining these skilled health care providers and integrating their roles into a hospital's daily functions is just as critical. These providers' roles also have to be integrated in a way that satisfies them and the doctors they work with. The following are crucial components to a successful integration between advanced practice providers and physicians in a hospital environment.

Advanced Practice Provider Influx Will Reshape Primary Care

Posted by VISTA Staffing on Feb 5, 2020 12:51:00 PM

 

As time goes on, the shortage of physicians is increasing. Demand is exceeding supply due to an aging population as well as the long training times involved in getting new medical students their degrees. The raw capacity of medical schools is also limited.

Because of this, the medical industry has had to adapt. Procedures that were once done by doctors are being performed by Advanced Practice Providers (APP) like nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse registered anesthetists. Currently, there are about 234,000 advanced practice registered nurses in the United States, and the number is expected to grow.
