PMID: 33731551.


The Affordable Care Act created funding for nurse practitioner education programs to transform the primary health care workforce through student awareness of how social, political, economic, and environmental factors influence individual and population health. Funding established Academic Clinical Partnerships (ACPs) that created value-based health care models, which improved patient outcomes and decreased hospital and emergency department admissions and health care costs. The ACP established a home-based primary health care (HBPC) program to deliver primary care and collect patient data.
