Nursing, quality improvement and innovation are practically synonyms. It's often a nurse who improves care for each patient and for every patient, innovating in the clinic or hospital and, ultimately, the health care system.
National Nurses Week, May 6-12 is the time to get ready to help your patients in a whole new way.
When key parts of the Affordable Care Act take effect in 2014, you’ll be able to steer them to a new way to get health insurance: the Health Insurance Marketplace.
Every health insurance plan in the new Marketplace will offer comprehensive coverage, from doctors to medications to hospital visits – and ways to compare insurance options based on price, benefits, quality, and other features, in plain language that makes sense.
Use these resources to turn innovative ideas into processes and best practices that lead to improved patient outcomes:
