This study examined the practice of co-managed post-operative care and the visual acuity outcomes and complications associated with co-managed services.
Data on service utilization and medical outcomes were collected for 2822 cataract surgery procedures performed in 5 ambulatory eye centers between January and July 1988.
Average age of patients was 72.8 (SD=10.4) and 63% were female.
Eighty-seven percent of eyes were co-managed.
Average number of post-operative visits within 90 days was 4.7 and 6.2 for co-managed cases with and without complications, respectively.
