This conference call builds on the FTC approach related to advanced practice --– how do we get advanced practice nursing organizations to support FTC research on collaboration?

 And, we covered changes in Texas law.  Texas and a number of other states have attempted to adopt legislation which would allow exemptions of health care collaborative from antitrust law. Under senate bill 8, state-certified healthcare collaboratives comprised of hospitals, physicians and other providers would be exempt from state and federal antitrust laws. The way these laws have been structured, they could be used to keep advanced practice nurses from pursuing practice arrangements within the ACO structure, although federal law and regulation has be structured to incorporate APNs into this delivery arrangement.
