National listing of the largest urogynecology practices operating within the U.S.
Urogynecology practices across the U.S. have changed considerably over the last decade. Many practices have merged and increased in size in order to be more competitive and deal the complexities of insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid reimbursements. Additionally, these practices have starting taking on more diagnostic and treatment services that were traditionally done in hospital settings. These services include minor surgeries, CT scans, urodynamics testing, and more. A listing of the largest urogynecology practices in the U.S. is provided below:
Is your OBGYN practice a failing business? BHN (Brighter Health Network) would like to know. So should you.You’re busy. Your parking lot has a brisk turnover and your lunches are hurried. CME costs much more than tuition when you add up the money lost while out of your office. You have good months most of the time, but you also have your “marginal” months. All the more confusing is that today’s shortfall is based on what you did six weeks ago, while the piper who demands payment demands it today.
Urodynamic services can be added to your medical practice to help increase your net income. The reason for this is that additional urodynamic services can increase your revenue by increasing the cost of the service and lowering reimbursements.
Before you decide to add extra services to draw in potential patients, you’ll want to ask yourself five distinct questions. These questions can help determine if adding additional urodynamic services can benefit your business.
Urodynamic services provide valuable information when it comes to the urinary health of patients due to their interaction with medications, drugs, and other substances. However, some clinics doubt that urodynamic services make a difference in specific populations of people. To test this theory Suskind AM, Cox L, and Clemens JQ et al. (2017) decided to test the value of urodynamic services within an academic specialty referral practice. The objective of the study was to demonstrate that UDS services could provide useful information for correct medication doses in patients and other drugs.
Patients & Pre-screening
The perspective questionnaire was designed to determine the use of UDS in clinical practices. Each patient who was invited to be in the study was 18 years or older and were either male or female. Five clinics asked their patients if they wanted to participate in the study if they were coming for a UDS service. They were then prompted with a pre-questionnaire asking their race, gender, age, and if they had previously used UDS services. They were also asked if they had any history of pelvic radiation and neurological conditions.
Most of the urodynamic literature is currently focused on the indications for urodynamic studies for treatment of voiding dysfunction and urinary incontinence. In reality, much less is known about the frequency with which urodynamic procedures are being performed and trends in the practice among urologists. In the following article, we will talk about trends in the practice of urodynamic procedures among urologists in the last decade and we will try to find what factors impacting growth. We compared relevant studies and put together the information to assess the utilization of urodynamic procedures.
