ANA Contends Improvements Can Be Made on Care Coordination Provisions

The American Nurses Association (ANA) commends federal regulators for heeding ANA’s advice to expand registered nurses’ (RNs) roles in their final rules for creating a new type of collaborative health care organization, but contends that improvements still should be made to recognize the value of care coordination provided by nurses.

ANA is particularly pleased that final rules issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for Medicare Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) include these changes, based on recommendations from ANA and other nursing groups.
