  1. Declines in patient volume : An obstetrics and gynecology teaching program's response.

    Article - En anglais

    Historically, University teaching hospitals have been the primary providers of health care to the indigent population.

    With the advent of managed health-care plans, the university hospitals have seen a rapid decline in their obstetrical patient populations.

    This decrease is reflected in the numbers of deliveries and gynecological surgeries.

    From 1990 to 1995, these changes resulted in a significant decline in deliveries at our hospital, the Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital.

    To reverse this ominous trend, we instituted a variety of changes resulting in a more patient-centered system and found an improvement in the numbers of obstetrical patients.

    In the following report, we describe these changes and the subsequent outcome.
