INTRODUCTION: Although information about physician primary care practices abounds, little information is available to develop benchmarks for financial performance of nurse-managed primary care centers. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to examine the revenues and costs of Academic Nurse-Managed Centers delivering primary care and determine their relative efficiency based on economic theory. SAMPLE: As part of an Academic Consortium of Nurse-Managed Primary Care Centers, six centers across a Midwestern State collected revenue and cost data for calendar year 2000. Centers provide a full range of primary care services and the majority of centers offer health education classes, screening, and counseling. Centers have between 1000 to 5500 visits per year. METHODS: Researchers developed a financial reporting form and interviewed key personnel to obtain comparable data across sites. Data were analyzed using traditional cost analyses. RESULTS: The centers' financial profiles are compared to determine their relative efficiency and to establish baseline performance measures for future studies. The similarities and differences between clinics' financial performance are presented and factors contributing to their financial sustainability are discussed. CONCLUSIONS: Implications of study findings for managers, advanced practice nurses, educators and policy-makers are also presented.
