Suddenly, dramatically, and seemingly overnight, U.S. healthcare has morphed into something virtually unrecognizable. There are a slew of new requirements, regulations, goals, buzzwords, and acronyms. It is a revolution in how we view the role and responsibilities not only of the physician and patient, but also of the nurse, the nurse practitioner, physical therapist, nutritionist, medical assistant, pharmacy technician, social worker, and other healthcare professionals. But you don’t just have to cope in this new world of healthcare. Now you can learn how to thrive amid all these changes and challenges. Written by the Chief Medical Officer of one of the world's leading global healthcare data and analytics companies, Navigating Healthcare Reform: An Insider’s Guide for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals is a compelling and easy-to-follow guide to understanding our unfolding healthcare reform — including its biobehavioral and psychosocial aspects — and learning how to take advantage of the opportunities it presents.
