Are nonphysician providers (NPPs) right for your practice?
We are excited to let you know about a new resource that was developed by the MGMA Data Solutions analysts. As you know, medical practices are increasingly using nonphysician providers (NPPs) as a solution to the physician shortage and the influx of new patients resulting from the Affordable Care Act.
The NPP Utilization in the Future of US Healthcare: An MGMA Research and Analysis Report (http://www.mgma.com/npp-states) was developed to help you determine whether NPPs are right for your practice. Learn about the role of NPPs, their scope of practice and the settings in which they work. Gain access to a variety of resources that provide specific, detailed information. Read an analysis of the cost effectiveness of NPPs and how to bill for their services while complying with federal laws. And last but not least, use the accompanying checklist to help you determine whether your practice should hire NPPs. Download the free report (http://www.mgma.com/npp-states).
