The passage and subsequent implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 has brought a wave of health reform to America. This exploratory case study is intended to focus on how using Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) can better serve the newly insured population and meet the population health goals set forth by the Triple Aim. There are new and emerging roles throughout healthcare where these providers could be utilized more expansively both in the inpatient and outpatient settings. The evolution and development of these roles will help offset the impact of the expected increase in demand for care for these newly insured patients against the looming predicted physician shortage, as well as improve the health of the population, which is a main component of the goal of public health. Allowing advanced practice providers to practice and work to their fullest capabilities and scope of practice is a low cost, high quality solution that many will employ.
