New Book Gives Healthcare Administrators and Practice Owners Control Over Staffing and Fiscally-smart Practice Structures for NPs and PAs

PHOENIX, Md., Nov. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Most medical practice management literature addresses practice structure and profitability as it relates to physicians. The role of nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) has evolved significantly over the past several years but most practices are not set up to take full advantage of their potential. Yet fiscally smart and patient-centered practices are effectively using nurse practitioners and physician assistants in this ever-changing healthcare landscape. This new book discusses what employers can expect when hiring advanced practice providers and how to help midlevel providers in their practices reach their full potential.

"Any practice that is not using the full power of physician assistants and nurse practitioners is missing out on a breakthrough," says author Erin Tolbert. "With Unlocking the Value of NPs and PAs: Increase Revenue and Create a Healthy and Thriving Practice with Midlevel Providers," she says, "medical practice administrators can get right to work tracking productivity, analyzing costs, planning compensation, and deciding on a structure that takes advantage of the midlevel providers to improve practice efficiency and practice revenue."
