Managed care involvement by cardiovascular specialists : prevalence, attitudes and influence on practice.
The purpose of tits study was to determine the involvement in and attitudes toward managed care by cardiovascular specialists and the influence of such programs on their practices.
No in-depth study has measured the impact of managed care on cardiovascular specialists.
Therefore, we conducted a mail survey to determine the prevalence of managed care arrangements among cardiovascular specialists and variations among pediatric and adult cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons; the types of managed care arrangements in witch cardiovascular specialists are engaged; the reasons why those not participating in managed care have chosen not to do so; and the general attitudes among cardiovascular specialists with regard to various aspects of managed care.
