In an era of increased demands and constrained budgets, it is necessary to make the best use of all available resources.
This is difficult when specialized vision care, such as low vision clinical assessment, is involved because of the heterogeneity of the patient populations seen by such clinics.
This research attempts to discover if these diverse patient populations can be identified and clustered into groups based upon similarity of clinical resources use.
Specifically, the inquiry examines the potential for a low vision patient resource utilization classification scheme at the Low Vision Clinic (LVC) in the Centre for Sight Enhancement (CSE), University of Waterloo.
