Given the new requirements that have surfaced because of recent healthcare reform, the primary care gap in the United States is continuing to grow. To help bridge the gap, many healthcare providers are taking a more team-based approach to patient care—where nurses are involved every step of the way.

In the past, the nursing role was one that did not participate in discussions on care management. Today, however, as our healthcare system continues to evolve and become more complex, an increased number of medical providers are realizing the value nurses bring to workflow design.

According to a 2012 article published in H&HN magazine, when nurses have more responsibility over care management and a louder voice in workflow design, not only does public health improve, the entire health system also becomes leaner and more effective.
