Stephen Ferrara, nurse practitioner and blogger for A Nurse Practitioner’s View, weighs in on the medical home model, whose success will depend heavily on NPs:

I am encouraged by this model and anticipate that it will not only improve patient outcomes but will also drive down costs of health care. This is the part that is largely unknown: will it curb the needless spending and duplication of tests/screenings ordered for what is largely considered defensive medicine and will outcomes improve by keeping folks out of the hospital?
