Extract

I attended CHEST 1998 in Toronto, ON, Canada. Among the excellent lectures and discussions that I heard was the Presidential Address given by Robert McCaffree, MD, FCCP (see page 1155 in this issue of CHEST). While discussing the current state of medical practice, he mentioned that some managed care organizations have reduced actual patient contact time to 7 or 8 min. Presumably, this does not include the time it takes to write the detailed patient assessment required by the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA)1 or to count the number of bullets that you have achieved and to calculate a bill.2
