Demystifying State Health Marketplaces

Health care reform will impact nursing across the United States on many different levels.

One example will be how insurance marketplaces change practice transparency, access to care, the design and delivery of health care services, availability of health information, and quality outcomes.

In a comprehensive article in a recent issue of Nursing Economic$, researchers reveal the dynamics of how each model will operate within each state.

Communication between nurses in all states should be an ongoing dialogue through specialty and state nursing organizations to ensure nursing is aware of both issues and best practices nationwide.

For more info, see Hahn et al. (2013). Demystifying state health insurance marketplaces. Nursing Economic$, 31(3), 119-127, 143.
