Advanced Practice Provider Executives, Inc. (APPex) - Consulting Services
APPex founded and maintains the largest and most comprehensive network of Advanced Practice Provider Executives in the U.S. and globally. Advanced Practice Provider Executives are administrative leaders, commonly positioned at academic medical centers, with centralized administrative oversight who support the resources, opportunities and overall practicing environment for the institution's APPs. Typically, these APP executives function at the director-level within their organization, but other leaders serve as APP Managers, Leads or Chiefs of a particular service/specialty or as Chairs or Co-Chairs of an APP Council or Committee (e.g., AHP Board, NP Council, Interdisciplinary Practice Committee, etc.).
APPex consulting services are intended for hospital CEOs, COOs, VPs of Clinical Services, VPs of Patient Care Services/Nursing, Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs), Chief Medical Officers (CMOs), Directors of Advanced Practice, Directors of Professional Practice, Directors of Nursing Education/Practice, Directors of Quality, Directors of the Medical Staff, Directors of Human Resource, Lead/Chief APPs, APP Chairs of Councils/Committees or other hospital executives who need advice, support and/or recommendations pertaining to APPs.
*Advanced Practice Provider (APP) is the modern term referencing a non-physician healthcare practitioner who is either a physician assistant or an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) serving in a provider role—typically a nurse practitioner, nurse midwife or nurse anesthetist, but may also include clinical nurse specialist.
This group of providers is still sometimes referred to as mid-level providers (MLPs), physician extenders, non-physician providers (NPPs), non-physician medical providers (NMPs), allied health practitioners (AHPs), or licensed independent practitioners (LIPs).
