  1. Obstetrician-gynecologists as primary care physicians : The perspectives of health maintenance organization medical directors and obstetrician-gynecologists.

    Objective 

    To survey the interest of obstetrician-gynecologists in serving as primary care physicians and their perceived preparedness for that role from the view points of managed care plans and obstetrician-gynecologists.

    Results 

    Thirty-seven percent of obstetrician-gynecologists expressed little or no interest in serving as primary care physicians, and 37% had some or high interest.

    Fifty-six percent were not interested in serving as gatekeepers, and 45% believed that physicians in the specialty should not do so.

    Almost all believed women should be allowed direct access to obstetrician-gynecologists.

    Over half of the managed care plans allowed women to refer themselves to obstetrician-gynecologists, and one-third allowed these physicians to serve as primary care gatekeepers.

    Most plans believed that extensive additional training is needed for obstetrician-gynecologists to serve as gatekeepers, whereas 70% of specialists believed that little or no additional training is needed. (...)
