Sylvia Hastanan is the CEO and Founder of Greater Good Health and shines a light on the experience and new skills that nurse practitioners have developed as a result of the demand for virtual care during the pandemic. Sylvia wants to empower and train NPs as primary care providers to provide more access to underserved communities and to promote a stronger partnership between nurse practitioners and physicians to handle the ever-increasing demand for chronic and senior healthcare.
Sylvia explains, "Greater Good Health is building a medical group of nurse practitioners simply with a mission to expand more access to care to people who need it. We believe in supporting nurse practitioners, who we think have been an overlooked and maybe underutilized resource in healthcare, and nurse practitioners specifically as primary care providers."
"Well, my background has always been in healthcare and provider services. I worked for organizations across the United States that supported physician groups, primary care physician groups specifically. And I watched as NPs worked alongside physicians. I watched as physicians continued to be burnt out and struggled with caseloads, patient caseloads, and 35 patients in a day and only seeing them for minutes at a time."
