Abstract : As managed care matures throughout the country, health maintenance organizations (HMOs) are being subject to increasing regulation and oversight. The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) oversees much of this activity, and is a currently pursuing a vigorous campaign addressing patient outcomes. The general concern was whether adequate levels of non-physician ambulatory care were being provided to Florida HMO members. The purpose of this management project was to develop a planwide, home health care assessment program, and pilot the program for the first quarter of 1996.
