Key Quantitative Results

  • Post-implementation, the adjusted mean overall time spent per patient during clinic sessions decreased by 0.5 min (p = 0.86; 95% confidence interval [ 5.05, 6.04]) from a preintervention adjusted average of 27.55 min (SE = 2.1) to a post-intervention adjusted average of 27.05 min (SE = 1.6).
