The productivity-patient care content relationship in general practice and primary health care has never been a popular topic among medical practitioners.
Yet the time a physician spends with patients or the number of patients treated in a fixed time interval would appear to be a critical factor in the content of this care.
While current research has demonstrated a clear effect with respect to psychosocial care, the evidence with respect to technical care remains equivocal.
The purpose of this study is to assess how physician production-measured as the number of patients seen per hour-affects the technical care performance of preventive and well care in 6 major patient management areas.
The analysis uses data collected from 15 publicly supported, primary care centers in Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
