National Medical Care Utilization and Expenditure Survey (Series). Series B, Descriptive Report

In the household survey phase of the National Medical Care Utilization and Expenditure Survey of 1980, a survey was made of 17,123 persons who made up a representative sample of the civilian population in the United States not residing in institutions. Through repeated interviews the survey obtained information on the health conditions of these people, the health care services they received in 1980, the costs of these services, and the arrangements made for paying for the services.

Nonphysician clinicians (NPCs) are becoming increasingly prominent as health care providers. This study examines 10 such disciplines: nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), nurse-midwives, chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths, optometrists, podiatrists, nurse anesthetists, and clinical nurse specialists. The aggregate number of NPCs graduating annually in these 10 disciplines doubled between 1992 and 1997, and a further increment of 20% is projected for 2001.

OBJECTIVE: Healthcare providers commonly refer patients to physiatrists and neurologists for electrodiagnostic testing when they have symptoms suggestive of a peripheral nerve disorder. Published practice guidelines specify that electrodiagnostic medicine consultants should possess special neurologic and procedural training in this area. We recently found that despite these practice guidelines, physical therapists, chiropractors, and podiatrists perform 17% of electrodiagnostic studies in the United States.
