Co-management in eye care. A personal perspective

Optom Clin. 1994;4(2):1-8.


Co-management is a relatively new health care delivery system. It represents a coordinated approach to the delivery of eye care involving the local primary care provider (optometrist) and the regional secondary and tertiary center. The history, philosophy, and future of co-management are discussed, as are keys to the development of a successful co-management team.
