Two conditions that may have a significant impact on revenue in the care setting are patient volume and reimbursement rates. Patient volume is important because it affects how many patients an APRN can see in a given day and therefore their ability to generate revenue. Reimbursement rates also affect revenue as they determine how much money is generated from each patient visit. These two conditions can have a significant impact on APRNs, as they must be mindful of these factors when providing care for their patients. For example, if there are fewer patients coming into the clinic due to low reimbursement rates or lack of insurance coverage, then APRNs will need to find more efficient ways of treating those that do come in order to maximize their time and minimize lost revenue potential. On the other hand, if reimbursement rates are higher than average, then APRNs may need to focus on delivering better quality care in order to justify charging higher fees for services rendered. Additionally, understanding the demographics of their patient population will help them understand what type of services might be most beneficial or profitable for them while still meeting all clinical needs of the patient.
