determine reimbursement and salary.

As an APN, productivity will be an important measurement for the practice to determine reimbursement and salary. Fee-for-service practices will require a set number of patients per day to maintain productivity. A capitated practice will require the APN to have a large panel of patients but also will focus on controlling costs. This can be accomplished through effective primary care that is accessible, convenient for the patients and has a method of measuring quality of care.

You are now employed as an Family Nurse Practitioner FNP in primary care. Choose one performance measure from one of the six domains of care. List and discuss three different patient interventions and how you would specifically measure the outcomes for that particular performance measure. How would these primary care interventions result in improved patient outcomes and cost savings for the practice? How can these interventions result in improved patient ratings?

In text citations at least 3: Must be APA format, no older than 5 years and reputable sources that are not textbooks.
