NNBA Nurse Entrepreneur News – 11/15/2018
We are honored and humbled by the wonderful comments made by so many of the #NNBA2018 attendees; thank you. Our annual conference is truly a team effort and the biggest part of that team is you! Nurses are hungrier than ever for knowledge that will allow them to benefit from their years of experience and valuable subject matter expertise. A good deal of our conference is spent sharing with nurses how they can monetize that experience. With that in mind, we are announcing our Call for Speakers #NNBA2019 https://nnbanow.com/call-for-speakers-2019/ Please note that there is a short window on this call with the deadline being December 31, 2018 and only NNBA members proposals will be considered.

Mobile health and Tele-health innovations are coming on strong, and as soon as the Current Procedural Terminology (CPT Coding Manual) catches up with technology, we will be seeing more and more non-traditional opportunities. Unfortunately the AMA owns the CPT and there is not one nurse on the CPT Editorial Panel. This is one of the reasons it is so frustrating for nurses to get direct reimbursements. Looking out to what is happening in the healthcare delivery landscape; traditional models will continue to decline. Nurses need to look at reimbursement models and get involved. If you are a nurse that knows how to work with legislation and regulation, please reach out to me so we have more nurses involved in CPT. If we can’t get our nursing service out of the room rate, we have to be a recognized provider in the newer areas of technology.
