As organizations look to optimize provider team performance, APPs are essential in helping to transform care delivery.

Utilizing APPs to their full potential can help improve patient access, reduce the cost of care, advance quality outcomes and increase provider satisfaction. Leading health care organizations recognize that workforce models impacting who administers care and how it is delivered must change. To achieve desired efficiencies, existing processes must be transformed to optimize physician and APP workforces, align their performance with the organization’s strategic goals, and reward them for improvement efforts.
