Much of this article is based on predictions by Kathleen Griffin and Marianne Fazen which were printed in ASHA’s Quality Improvement Digest (1993). The predictions in the article had a profound influence on our clinic in terms of changes in service delivery as well as clinical management. A discussion follows with suggestions and ideas of how university clinics might deal with managed care.
The first trend addressed in the Griffen and Fazen article is the increasing importance and scope of managed care. In other words, managed care is here to stay. How did our clinical staff feel about this prediction? We felt that university/community clinics such as ours were headed for major chaos and/or possibly a major catastrophe.
