  1. Time parameters for glaucoma procedures.

    Article - En anglais

    Changes in physician reimbursement and the practice environment have emphasized the importance of determining physician time for procedures and services.

    Forty-five percent of the members of the American Glaucoma Society responded to a mail survey of estimates of the length of time and number of visits for the preoperative, operative, and 90-day postoperative care for six common glaucoma procedures.

    Results suggest a significant underestimation of time for trabeculectomies exists in the original and new resource-based relative value scale work values.

    Further, 47% to 53% of surgeons hospitalize patients on at least the first postoperative day.

    There were no apparent time efficiencies between « high- » and « low-volume » respondents.
