  1. Work time estimates for ophthalmic diagnoses and procedures : Results from the eye care workforce study.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective 

    To provide estimates of patient-level annual ophthalmologist work times for the care of common ophthalmic conditions and patient-level global surgical care time for common or important ophthalmic procedures.

    Methods 

    A random sample of the domestic membership (excluding members-in-training) of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, stratified by self-designated practice concentration, was surveyed in 1994 to provide estimates of work times for common ophthalmic services.

    Results 

    Comprehensive and subspecialty-specific results were obtained for ophthalmic diagnoses, services, and surgical procedures.

    For ophthalmic diagnoses and services, initial and follow-up visit work times are reported for comprehensive and subspecialty ophthalmologists separately.

    For common surgical procedures, aggregate results based on comprehensive and subspecialist survey responses are reported.

    Conclusions 

    These ophthalmology-specific survey results can be used for a variety of purposes, including practice management, « benchmarking, » health plan administration, and national workforce planning.

    Such surveys should be repeated as techniques and practice patterns change over time.
