Webinar Oct. 13 on Optimizing the Role of Advanced Practice Nurses to Increase Quality, Decrease Costs
Join NCHA, the North Carolina Nurses Association and the NC Organization for Nurse Leaders for a webinar Oct. 13 on "Optimizing the Role of Advanced Practice Nurses to Increase Quality, Decrease Costs." The webinar showcases the findings of the recent statewide study, Optimizing Nurse Roles in Healthcare Delivery System Initiatives. Learn how health systems and facilities in North Carolina are overcoming institutional barriers to allow nurses, and especially Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, to function at the fullest extent of their education and training. Find out how nurses are contributing to better hospital performance in meeting the Triple Aim goals of improved patient care experience, improved population health, and reducing per capita cost of health care – and how these best practices can be replicated in other facilities. The program is appropriate for all RNs and hospital leaders. For more details on the webinar, see the flyer. To register, click here.

NC Hospitals Making Cost and Quality Information Available to Consumers
North Carolina hospitals are committed to improving access to useful information for anyone making health care decisions. This information should come from all providers involved in your care, from physicians and hospitals to insurance companies. If you have insurance coverage, you will probably be most interested in knowing your potential “out of pocket” costs. Your insurance provider is the best source for this information. Many insurance companies have established cost calculators for their customers, based on a specific insurance plan, that can help you estimate your financial liability. Any search also should include getting information about quality measures, like patient safety and outcomes for hospital and outpatient procedures. You can find more information on cost and quality transparency at www.HealthierTomorrowNC.com.
