Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are integral to incorporating a more diverse, interdisciplinary, team-based approach to treating and caring for patients in 21st century healthcare. APPex is uniquely positioned to offer healthcare organizations–whether a large metropolitan academic medical center, a community hospital, a private medical practice, or other healthcare institution–expertise around the administrative infrastructure and operational framework that incorporates, serves, and effectively utilizes APPs.

APPex founded and maintains the largest and most comprehensive network of Advanced Practice Provider Executives. 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 system vice presidents, executive directors, administrative directors, assistant directors, managers, leads or chiefs of a particular service/specialty, or as chairs or co-chairs of an Advanced Practice 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 expertise, guidance, advisement, and recommendations pertaining to APPs.
