Topic Overview: The Affordable Care Act will now focus on quality and reimbursements to organizations based on outcomes for patients as opposed to volumes. New quality and compliance requirements will be the focus on transitioning all organizations to becoming Accountable Care Organizations as the nation's healthcare delivery system moves from the hospital clinic to the home, workplace and school. Occupational health nurses need to recognize now how their roles may change due to this shift in focus that will affect their worker population.


  1. List two attributes the occupational health nurse must portray when setting healthcare reform goals for the occupational health team.
  2. Describe the role of the occupational health nurse when dealing with healthcare reform and the effects it will have on employees.
  3. Explain the importance of the occupational health nurse’s understanding of healthcare benefits during this era of healthcare reform.
