Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of an established patient, which requires at least 2 of these 3 key components: An expanded problem focused history; An expanded problem focused examination; Medical decision making of low complexity. Counseling and coordination of care with other physicians, other qualified health care professionals, or agencies are provided consistent with the nature of the problem(s) and the patient's and/or family's needs. Usually, the presenting problem(s) are of low to moderate severity. Typically, 15 minutes are spent face-to-face with the patient and/or family.

Treatment failure and costs in patients with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) skin and soft tissue infections: a South Texas Ambulatory Research Network (STARNet) study. - Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine : JABFM
To measure the incidence of treatment failure and associated costs in patients with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs).This was a prospective, observational study in 13 primary care clinics. Primary care providers collected clinical data, wound swabs, and 90-day follow-up information. Patients were considered to have "moderate or complicated" SSTIs if they had a lesion ≥5 cm in diameter or diabetes mellitus. Treatment failure was evaluated within 90 days of the initial visit. Cost estimates were obtained from federal sources.Overall, treatment failure occurred in 21% of patients (21 of 98) at a mean additional cost of $1,933.71 per patient. In a subgroup analysis of patients who received incision and drainage, those with moderate or complicated SSTIs had higher rates of treatment failure than those with mild or uncomplicated SSTIs (36% vs. 10%; P=.04).One in 5 patients presenting to a primary care clinic for a methicillin-resistant S. aureus SSTI will likely require additional interventions at an associated cost of almost $2,000 per patient. Baseline risk stratification and new treatment approaches are needed to reduce treatment failures and costs in the primary care setting.
Prevalence, severity, and treatment of community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) skin and soft tissue infections in 10 medical clinics in Texas: a South Texas Ambulatory Research Network (STARNet) study. - Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine : JABFM
Quantify the prevalence, measure the severity, and describe treatment patterns in patients who present to medical clinics in Texas with community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) skin and soft-tissue infections (SSTI).Ten primary care clinics participated in this prospective, community-based study. Clinicians consented patients and collected clinical information, pictures, and wound swabs; data were processed centrally. MRSASelect™ was used for identification. Susceptibilities were determined via Etest®.Overall, 73 of 119 (61%) patients presenting with SSTIs meeting eligibility requirements had CA-MRSA. Among these, 49% were male, 79% were Hispanic, and 30% had diabetes. Half (56%) of the lesions were ≥ 5 cm in diameter. Most patients had abscesses (82%) and many reported pain scores of ≥ 7 of 10 (67%). Many presented with erythema (85%) or drainage (56%). Most received incision and drainage plus an antibiotic (64%). Antibiotic monotherapy was frequently prescribed: trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP-SMX) (78%), clindamycin (4%), doxycycline (2%), and mupirocin (2%). The rest received TMP-SMX in combination with other antibiotics. TMP-SMX was frequently administered as one double-strength tablet twice daily. Isolates were 93% susceptible to clindamycin and 100% susceptible to TMP-SMX, doxycycline, vancomycin, and linezolid.We report a predominance of CA-MRSA SSTIs, favorable antibiotic susceptibilities, and frequent use of TMP-SMX in primary care clinics.
Prevalence of diabetes mellitus and correlation of urinary transforming growth factor-beta1 with blood hemoglobin A1C in the Atascosa Diabetes Study. - Ethnicity & disease
This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of type 2 diabetes and prediabetes in the Atascosa Diabetes Study sample and to ascertain the relationship between urinary transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) and blood hemoglobin (Hgb) A1C.Subjects (N = 526) classified as adjusted normal, at risk, prediabetes, and diabetes mellitus were given a one-hour and two-hour postprandial glucose (PPG) test. Morning urine samples were collected to test for a correlation of TGF-beta1 with blood HgbA1C.Of the subjects, 14.3% had diabetes, 31.6% had prediabetes, 7.9% were at risk, and 46.2% were adjusted normal. Sensitivity and specificity for one-hour PPG for prediabetes and diabetes were significant, with an efficiency of 80.2%-90.9% and a likelihood ratio of 4.7-10.2. Receiver operating characteristic analysis resulted in an area under the curve of .880 +/- .016 for one hour to prediabetes and diabetes and .960 +/- .016 for one hour to diabetes. Prediabetes was 1.07 times more prevalent in Hispanics, but diabetes was 1.65 times greater in Whites. Urinary TGF-beta1 was more than fivefold higher in poorly controlled versus controlled diabetic or normal subjects and had a significant positive correlation with HgbA1C.The percentage of subjects with type 2 diabetes was 1.64 times higher than the national average. Prevalence of prediabetes was equivalent in Hispanics and Whites, and the reversal for diabetes might reflect higher mortality rate from diabetes in Hispanics in Atascosa County. Use of one-hour PPG and urine markers for early kidney involvement could improve this disparity in such high-risk populations.
