Abstract

Executive Summary▸ The value of nursing care as well as the contribution of individual nurses to clinical outcomes has been difficult to measure and evaluate.▸ Existing health care financial models hide the contribution of nurses; therefore, the link between the cost and quality of nursing care is unknown.▸ New data and methods are needed to articulate the added value of nurses to patient care.▸ The final results and recommendations of an expert workgroup tasked with defining and measuring nursing care value, including a data model to allow extraction of key information from electronic health records to measure nursing care value, are described.▸ A set of new analytic metrics are proposed.
