nt responses to these questions were translated from a 1 - 5 scale to a cumulative raw score ranging from 0 to 100. Surveys were grouped by self-reported wait times (0-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-30 and over 30 minutes).The longer the wait, the worse the patients rated the total experience, researchers concluded.

Physician Extenders in an Outpatient Otolaryngology Setting
Presenters: Byron Norris, MD; Tristen Harris, MPAS, PA-C; Scott Stringer, MD, MS
Time: 11:23 am
Location: Room 206AB

Boston, MA Mid-level providers may be incorporated in many facets and spectra of an outpatient otolaryngology practice. Their adjunctive care is not only cost-effective but has the advantages of increasing patient education, promoting physician productivity, and improving management of chronic conditions.

In a presentation at the 2010 AAO-HNSF Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO in Boston, researchers performed a literature review of four different practice models for incorporation of physician extenders in an otolaryngology practice. A case study was presented involving physician extenders in an academic otolaryngology clinic, and the advantages, disadvantages, and cost analysis were reviewed.

Compared to hypopharyngeal surgery, the odds of undergoing isolated palate surgery were higher for younger (age 18-39 years) and black patients, but were not associated with other variables.
