Study: Nurse Practitioners Can Contribute More to Revenue Cycle, Clinical Operations

Share on Facebook
Nurse practitioners, though recognized as primary care providers in many states, could prove more useful for electronic health records and billing purposes than most practices currently make them, according to an EHR Intelligence report.

A recently study in the Journal of Professional Nursing found organizational inefficiencies, a lack of education and an office culture of putting nurse practitioners "on the back burner" may be keeping providers from benefiting from NPs' skills, both clinical and revenue cycle-related.

The study found EHR and billing software did not accurately recognize NPs clinical quality measures and restricted their patient data access.
