The Senate Study Committee released its "Final Report of the Barriers to Georgians’ Access to Adequate Healthcare."

 

The Senate Study Committee on Barriers to Georgians’ Access to Adequate Healthcare was created with the introduction of Senate Resolution 188 during the 2017 Legislative Session, in order to analyze the current state of Georgians’ access to care and the scope of practice of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses in the State of Georgia.

 

To carry out its mission, the Committee held several public meetings and listened to testimonies from an assortment of healthcare professionals and representatives of specialty organizations and hospital associations. Also, the Committee researched and considered reliable studies depicting the current state of healthcare in Georgia and its rank nationwide.

 

The results of the study shed light on the need for improving access to care and how increasing the scope of practice of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses will help accomplish this goal. In addition, the results served as the basis for Committee's recommendations, such as expanding the Preceptor Tax Incentive Program for APRNs and Physician Assistants, and the development of telemedicine.
