Abstract

Increasing health care value has become a central objective of payment policies, insurance design and purchasing, and patient and provider decision-making. The word “value” appeared in the title of seven sections of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and earlier this year CMS set a goal of having 50 percent of reimbursement based on value. This brief reviews nurses’ contribution to value, highlighting evidence published by researchers in the Interdisciplinary Nursing Quality Research Initiative (INQRI), an 8-year program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. It also looks at interventions designed to address outcomes targeted by ACA- or Medicare-related payment policies.
