Provision of primary care by office-based rheumatologists: results from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Surveys, 1991-1995. (2/982)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent to which office-based rheumatologists provide primary care to patients without rheumatic diseases or provide principal care to patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was used to determine national probability estimates of the nature and types of conditions treated by office-based rheumatologists in 1991-1995. At each of 1,074 patient visits, the rheumatologists recorded up to 3 diagnoses and 3 patient-reported reasons for the visit, as well as information on the treatments provided at the visit. RESULTS: In only 9.8% of new consultations and 11.9% of return visits was neither a rheumatic disease diagnosis nor a musculoskeletal complaint recorded, indicating that the rheumatologist was likely acting as a primary care provider at a minority of patient visits. Among continuing patients with RA, the patient's primary reason for the visit was something other than a musculoskeletal complaint in only 9.9% of visits, and any nonrheumatic complaint was recorded in 30.4% of visits, indicating that at only some visits was the rheumatologist acting as the principal caregiver. In addition, only 31.1% of visits included the provision of medication for a nonrheumatic condition. CONCLUSION: In 1991-1995, most visits to rheumatologists involved the provision of specialized or consultative care to patients with rheumatic diseases or musculoskeletal complaints, and few visits were made by patients without either indication. Provision of principal care by rheumatologists to patients with RA is not currently widespread.  (+info)

Patient waiting times in a physician's office. (3/982)

This observational study measured waiting times, appointment durations, and scheduling variables of a single family practice physician. Waiting time and appointment duration in four sequential groups of sessions were compared using analysis of variance; each group used different scheduling templates. Groups 1 and 2 used a 15-minute base interval; group 3 used a 20-minute base interval. Observations for group 4 were collected at a different health center using a 15-minute base interval. Scheduling variables were correlated with waiting time using correlation coefficients, and data were collected on 1783 appointments. The best waiting time (mean +/- SD) was 17.33 +/- 19.19 minutes. The mean appointment duration for this group was 17.99 +/- 7.97 minutes. The F statistic comparing the four groups of sessions for waiting times was 34.14 and for appointment duration was 37.37, both of which are significant (P < 0.001). The Spearman correlation coefficient for waiting time with queue was 0.2474 (P < 0.001). The Spearman correlation coefficients for mean waiting time and lateness of starting a session (0.4530), patients per hour (0.3461), and patients per session (0.3674) were all significant (P < 0.001). Both scheduling and patient flow affect patient waiting times. The best schedule would consist of shorter sessions that started on time and were extended to accommodate extra patients rather than adding in patients and crowding the schedule. In addition to reducing the actual waiting times, the perception of waiting can be managed to minimize patient dissatisfaction.  (+info)

Cost of heart failure to the healthcare system. (4/982)

From an economic, mortality, and functional standpoint, heart failure is clearly a disease that needs to be targeted. We can develop a model for heart failure to determine the impact that specific management strategies will have on the overall cost to the system, which by itself can tell us some interesting things because we're currently spending twice as much on transplantation as on digoxin therapy. We can then use this model to assess the impact of different strategies, such as greater use of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or digoxin therapy.  (+info)

Developing quality measures for adolescent care: validity of adolescents' self-reported receipt of preventive services. (5/982)

OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the feasibility of directly surveying adolescents about the content of preventive health services they have received and to assess the validity of adolescent self-reported recall. DATA SOURCES/SETTING: Audiotaped encounters, telephone interviews, and chart reviews with 14-21 year olds being seen for preventive care visits at 15 pediatric and family medicine private practices, teaching hospital clinics, and health centers. DESIGN: 537 adolescents presenting for well visits were approached, 400 (75 percent) consented, 374 (94 percent) were audiotaped, and 354 (89 percent) completed telephone interviews either two to four weeks or five to seven months after their visits. Audiotapes were coded for screening and counseling across 34 preventive service content areas. Intraobserver reliability (Cohen's kappa) ranged from 0.45 for talking about peers to 0.94 for discussing tobacco. The sensitivity and specificity of the adolescent self-reports were assessed using the audiotape coding as the gold standard. RESULTS: Almost all adolescents surveyed (94 percent) remembered having had a preventive care visit, 93 percent identified the site of care, and most (84 percent) identified the clinician they had seen. There was wide variation in the prevalence of screening, based on the tape coding. Adolescent self-report was moderately or highly sensitive and specific at two weeks and six months for 24 of 34 screening and counseling items, including having discussed: weight, diet, body image, exercise, seatbelts, bike helmet use, cigarettes/smoking, smokeless tobacco, alcohol, drugs, steroids, sex, sexual orientation, birth control, condoms, HIV, STDs, school, family, future plans, emotions, suicidality, and abuse. Self-report was least accurate for blood pressure/cholesterol screening, immunizations, or for having discussed fighting, violence, weapon carrying, sleep, dental care, friends, or over-the-counter drug use. CONCLUSION: Adolescents' self-report of the care they have received is a valid method of determining the content of preventive health service delivery. Although recall of screening and counseling is more accurate within two to four weeks after preventive care visits, adolescents can report accurately on the care they had received five to seven months after the preventive health care visits occurred.  (+info)

The role of patients and providers in the timing of follow-up visits. Telephone Care Study Group. (6/982)

OBJECTIVE: Although the decision about how frequently to see outpatients has a direct impact on a provider's workload and may impact health care costs, revisit intervals have rarely been a topic of investigation. To begin to understand what factors are correlated with this decision, we examined baseline data from a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Cooperative Study designed to evaluate telephone care. DESIGN: Observational study based on extensive patient data collected during enrollment into the randomized trial. Providers were required to recommend a revisit interval (e.g., "return visit in 3 months") for each patient before randomization, under the assumption that the patient would be receiving clinic visits as usual. POPULATION/SETTING: Five hundred seventy-one patients over age 55 cared for by one of the 30 providers working in three VA general medical clinics. Patients for whom immediate follow-up (+info)

Setting the revisit interval in primary care. (7/982)

OBJECTIVE: Although longitudinal care constitutes the bulk of primary care, physicians receive little guidance on the fundamental question of how to time follow-up visits. We sought to identify important predictors of the revisit interval and to describe the variability in how physicians set these intervals when caring for patients with common medical conditions. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey of physicians performed at the end of office visits for consecutive patients with hypertension, angina, diabetes, or musculoskeletal pain. PARTICIPANTS/SETTING: One hundred sixty-four patients under the care of 11 primary care physicians in the Dartmouth Primary Care Cooperative Research Network. MEASUREMENTS: The main outcome measures were the variability in mean revisit intervals across physicians and the proportion of explained variance by potential determinants of revisit intervals. We assessed the relation between the revisit interval (dependent variable) and three groups of independent variables, patient characteristics (e.g., age, physician perception of patient health), identification of individual physician, and physician characterization of the visit (e. g., routine visit, visit requiring a change in management, or visit occurring on a "hectic" day), using multiple regression that accounted for the natural grouping of patients within physician. MAIN RESULTS: Revisit intervals ranged from 1 week to over 1 year. The most common intervals were 12 and 16 weeks. Physicians' perception of fair-poor health status and visits involving a change in management were most strongly related to shorter revisit intervals. In multivariate analyses, patient characteristics explained about 18% of the variance in revisit intervals, and adding identification of the individual provider doubled the explained variance to about 40%. Physician characterization of the visit increased explained variance to 57%. The average revisit interval adjusted for patient characteristics for each of the 11 physicians varied from 4 to 20 weeks. Although all physicians lengthened revisit intervals for routine visits and shortened them when changing management, the relative ranking of mean revisit intervals for each physician changed little for different visit characterizations-some physicians were consistently long and others were consistently short. CONCLUSION: Physicians vary widely in their recommendations for office revisits. Patient factors accounted for only a small part of this variation. Although physicians responded to visits in predictable ways, each physician appeared to have a unique set point for the length of the revisits interval.  (+info)

Ambulatory blood pressure and left ventricular mass in normotensive patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. (8/982)

Higher left ventricular mass (LVM) has been found in early stages of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). The mechanisms involved in the increase of LVM are unknown. To investigate whether LVM in ADPKD may be influenced by abnormal diurnal BP variations, the 24-h ambulatory BP profile was analyzed in a group of young normotensive ADPKD patients. Ambulatory BP monitoring and two-dimensional echocardiography were performed in 26 young normotensive ADPKD with normal renal function and in 26 healthy control subjects. LVM index was higher in ADPKD patients than in controls (90.8+/-19.6 g/m2 versus 73.9+/-16.1 g/m2, P = 0.001). Average 24-h and daytime systolic, diastolic, and mean BP were similar in both groups. Nighttime diastolic and mean BP, but not systolic BP, were greater in ADPKD patients. The average and percent nocturnal decrease of systolic BP was lower in ADPKD patients than in control subjects (10.0 mm Hg [-3 to 24] versus 15.5 mm Hg [-4 to 31], P = 0.009, and 9.0% [-2 to 22] versus 14.2% [-2 to 25], P = 0.016, respectively). On the basis of their profile BP patterns, 54% of ADPKD subjects and 31% of controls were classified as nondippers (P = 0.092). There were no differences between dippers and nondippers in left ventricular wall thickness, chamber dimensions, and mass indexes. In ADPKD patients, simple regression analysis showed that LVM index was correlated with 24-h, daytime, and nighttime systolic BP. On multiple regression analysis, the 24-h systolic BP was the only variable linked to LVM index. It is concluded that young normotensive ADPKD patients have higher LVM that is closely related to the ambulatory systolic BP. The nocturnal fall in BP is attenuated in these patients, although it is not associated with the higher LVH that they present.  (+info)

In contrast with previous research, our study finds that SSTI visits to physicians offices have not increased since the discovery of this drug-resistant superbug - community-associated MRSA, said Daniel Pallin, MD, MPH, lead author of the paper and Director of Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine at BWH.. Because dermatitis, a disease of the skin, is also thought to increase the risk of SSTI, the researchers analyzed office visits at which patients were diagnosed with dermatitis or an SSTI to determine if the two conditions were linked, and if the link became stronger since the discovery of community-associated MRSA. Using the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, data from 361,697 physicians office visits were collected and the researchers calculated national estimates. Pallin and colleagues found that dermatitis was diagnosed at 13 million office visits per year, and SSTI were diagnosed at 6.3 million visits per year, with the frequency of both diagnoses remaining unchanged ...

Introduction: Skin diseases affect a large percentage of people and can result in a markedly decreased quality of life. Nearly 25% of all physician office visits are for skin complaints, but only about one third of these visits occur with dermatologists. Most of the remaining visits for skin complaints occur with primary care physicians including Family Physicians, Internists, and Pediatricians. Primary care physicians, however, have an ever-increasing knowledge base of medicine to master and receive little formal training in dermatology. Several studies have shown that non-dermatologists have difficulty diagnosing many diseases of the skin. Improving the diagnostic accuracy and dermatologic care that these physicians provide to a large number of patients will significantly impact healthcare quality and cost-effective care by reducing error. An alternative to training more specialists is to provide visual diagnostic decision support to assist generalist clinicians during a patient encounter. ...

Smoking exacerbates the complications of diabetes, but little is known about whether patients with diabetes who smoke have more unplanned medical visits than those who do not smoke. This study examines the association between smoking status and unplanned medical visits among patients with diabetes. Data were drawn from electronic medical records (EMRs) from a large healthcare provider in the Northern Plains region of the US, from adult (≥18 years old) patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who received care at least once during 2014-16 (N = 62,149). The association between smoking status (current, former, or never smoker) and having ≥1 unplanned visit (comprised of emergency department visits, hospitalizations, hospital observations, and urgent care) was examined after adjusting for age, race/ethnicity, and body mass index (BMI). The top ten most common diagnoses for unplanned visits were examined by smoking status. Both current and former smoking were associated with an approximately 1.2-fold

Studies show that men are less likely than women to keep up with annual doctors visits. An American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) survey says that 52 percent of men have gotten a physical exam in the past year, and 30 percent of men say they wait as long as possible to seek treatment when theyre feeling sick or in pain. Regular doctor visits are crucial to helping avoid serious illness, the AAFP says.

He also ordered a bunch of tests for me. I think it is mostly related to checking for my BP and cholesterol. I did a urine test, blood work for cholesterol and I think also for my thyroid, and even an EKG! Im familiar with urine test and blood work but the EKG, that was new for me. When I had my EKG tested, the nurse noted that my heart was really strong. I wasnt sure what she meant and if it was related to my BP. She said no, its just that I have a strong heart which is a good thing. She showed me my graph compared it to the other patients, and said it looked really good ...

The biggest role my wife plays is as an advocate for me at the doctors. Ive had so many awful doctor visits over the years (so much so that I still cant bring myself to write about it in a single post), that she always comes in with me, even to the GP. I get foggy, so she is my second set of brains, and remembers things that doctors say, and remembers things I wanted to ask. I know Im a big girl, and can do all that by myself, but I feel bullied half the time when Im alone with doctors. Theyre so quick to dismiss what Im going through ...

Im in Canada. Socialized medicine. Its kind of an unwritten rule that making an appointment for everything are the only form of communication. Otherwise, how else would the doctors be able to bill the respective provincial health care agencies for the patient consult? Thats my take on it.

I suppose I could leave a message w/ said gatekeeper but Ive never tried to see if the doctor will call me back. I should try it sometime I guess ...

Shortly after I got home I received a call from the OB/MFM group that I will be seeing next Thursday. They called to let me know that there was a minor change in plans but not to worry. They are still having me come in for an initial intake with the nurse and an ultrasound with the MFM. The only change is that they are not scheduling me until after my appointment for my actual doctor visit. Originally, they had me down to also see an OB in addition to the MFM on Thursday but that OB will not be in the office that day, which actually worked out for the better as it could have been a complete waste of my time. Since they are almost positive that I will be staying with the MFM group exclusively, they want to wait to schedule me until Thursday when my intake is complete. The scheduler that called said that they can get me in as early as the following Monday if need be so she told me not to worry as there wont be any unnecessary waiting. This news actually makes me happy as they are truly going to ...

Kim and colleagues tracked the number of doctor visits from 2006 to 2010 made by 6,379 older adults from the Health and Retirement Study, a nationally representative panel study of people over age 50. Respondents provided background information about themselves, health history and psychological data. Respondents were asked if they agreed or disagreed with statements such as In most ways my life is close to ideal. They also indicated how many times they saw or talked to a doctor, including emergency room or clinic visits. Most respondents who reported a high life satisfaction visited doctors about 4.6 times a year compared with 6.3 visits annually among those who had a low life satisfaction. Overall, using a scale from 1 to 6, a person could expect an 11 percent decrease in doctor visits for each level of higher life satisfaction, the study found. If these findings are consistently replicated and done so with a wide variety of methodologies, I think it can lead to some innovative ways of ...

Q8. How can variances be calculated for NAMCS and NHAMCS estimates?. A8. Prior to calendar year 2002, NAMCS and NHAMCS public use files did not contain the sample design variables that are needed by sophisticated computer software like SUDAAN, which computes standard errors while taking the complex multi-stage sampling design into account. The design variables are confidential and have never been released to the general public. However, in 2002, a 5-year research project culminated in a plan to mask sample design variables so that they could be released without fear of disclosure of survey participants. The 2000 public use files were released with these variables, and both NAMCS and NHAMCS files from 1993-1999 were re-released to include them. We are hoping to eventually add masked sample design variables to NAMCS files from 1989-1992. Please see the survey documentation for more information about using computer software like SUDAAN to calculate standard errors.. Another method for calculating ...

If you have sciatica, its vital to see a doctor to get a proper diagnosis and start treatment. Heres what you can do to make your doctor visit productive.
President Obamas spending plan for fiscal year 2015 recommends excluding anatomic pathology (AP) services from the In-Office Ancillary Services (IOAS) exception to the Stark Law. Closing this self-referral loophole in the presidents budget reflects years of advocacy work by the CAP against the ongoing inclusion of AP services in the IOAS exception as it does not benefit patient care.. The 2015 budget is the first time the president called for the removal of AP services from the IOAS exception. The presidents budget also recommends removing advanced imaging, radiation therapy, and physical therapy services from the IOAS exception. Budget officials estimate removing these services would yield $6.03 billion over 10 years in Medicare savings.. While there are many appropriate uses for this exception, certain services, such as advanced imaging and outpatient therapy, are rarely furnished on the same day as the related physician office visit, President Obamas budget states. Additionally, there ...

Note: Counties were sorted into quintiles based on their level of vertical consolidation in 2013. Specifically, the counties in the lowest quintile were considered to have low levels of vertical consolidation, and the next four quintiles were considered to have medium-low, medium, medium-high, and high levels of vertical consolidation, respectively. The association GAO found between higher levels of vertical consolidation and higher utilization of evaluation and management office visits in hospital outpatient departments remained after using regression analyses to control for other factors that could affect the setting in which evaluation and management office visits were performed. Specifically, GAOs regression analyses found that the level of vertical consolidation in a county was significantly and positively associated with a higher number and percentage of evaluation and management office visits performed in hospital outpatient departments-that is, as vertical consolidation increased in a ...

Childhood is a time of rapid growth and change. Children have more well-child visits when they are younger. This is because development is faster during these years.. Each visit includes a complete physical exam. At this exam, the health care provider will check the childs growth and development in order to find or prevent problems.. The provider will record your childs height, weight, and other important information. Hearing, vision, and other screening tests will be part of some visits.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper exploits rich SOEP microdata to analyze state-level variation in health care utilization in Germany. Unlike most studies in the field of the Small Area Variation (SAV) literature, our approach allows us to net out a large array of individual-level and state-level factors that may contribute to the geographic variation in health care utilization. The raw data suggest that state-level hospitalization rates vary from 65 to 165 percent of the national mean. Ambulatory doctor visits range from 90 to 120 percent of the national mean. Interestingly, in the former GDR states, doctor visit rates are significantly below the national mean, while hospitalization rates lie above the national mean. The significant state-level differences vanish once we control for individual-level socio-economic characteristics, the respondents health status, their health behavior as well as supply-side state-level factors.

After ACA Medicaid expansion, rates of total and primary care visits did not change significantly for CHC patient populations with diabetes or those with no diabetes in expansion and nonexpansion states. Instead, CHCs experienced a shift in visit payer types (from uninsured to insured visits) rather than an increase in health care use. Patient populations with prediabetes saw a slight increase in total visit rates in both expansion (15%) and nonexpansion (14%) state CHCs.. Although total visit rates remained fairly stable, rates of insured CHC visits increased and rates of uninsured visits decreased among all 3 population cohorts included in this study in both expansion and nonexpansion state CHCs, which was reported previously for CHC patients.12⇓⇓-15 When comparing visit rates among the 3 population cohorts, those with diabetes had higher total visit rates (2.2/y) than those with prediabetes (1.9/y) or no diabetes (1.1/y). This total visit rate for those with diabetes is similar to ...

We know what needs to be done, says Stephen Schoenbaum, MD, executive director of the Commonwealth Funds commission on a high performance health system. Its feasible to at least make a lot of progress on this in the next five years.. It is true that the technology exists and that adoption is accelerating. But it is equally true that as of now, we are far from a national network of interconnected health information - the kind of system that would result in significant savings.. The National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS), a federal annual survey of visits to office-based physicians released last December, found that 41.5 percent of physicians reported using all or partial EMR/EHR systems (a partial system does more than just billing, perhaps electronic prescribing, but falls short of inclusive patient recordkeeping) in their office-based practices in 2008. The survey predicted that level of adoption for all or partial systems would rise to 43.9 percent last year. In 2007 it was 34 ...

Mens Health Week is a valuable time to communicate about preventable conditions and diseases, available screenings and early detection for those conditions..

Chronic illness and disease cause seventy percent of deaths in the United States, and many deaths could be prevented or delayed with proper medical care..
