Highly skilled primary care is a hallmark of high-performing health care systems. We examine nurse practitioners' role in delivering primary care and the effects of current restrictions on their ability to practice. By resolving differences between states' individual scope-of-practice regulations, we can fully benefit from the skills of advanced-practice nurses in all fifty states. We recommend substantive changes in the way health care professionals in all disciplines are trained, and in their roles, so that patients can receive appropriate and cost-effective care from skilled and fully functional health care teams.

CPT coding patterns at nurse-managed health centers: data from a national survey.Vonderheid, S. C., Pohl, J. M., Tanner, C., Newland, J. A., & Gans, D. N. Nursing economic$, 27, 211-9; quiz 220,
Nurse-managed health centers (NMHCs) play an important role in delivering health care services to a wide range of communities and often serve as our nation's safety net providers. Unfortunately, NMHCs struggle to remain in business for a variety of reasons, including underdeveloped business practices. Until now, NMHCs had only data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and the Medical Group Management Assocation for comparison with coding patterns in individual centers. This article is the first published report of national data for NMHCs that is available for comparison. Providers need to possess financial acumen to remain open for business. Assessment of CPT coding patterns is a key strategy to support long-term sustainability.
