Evaluation of care management intensity and bariatric surgical weight loss.
This study examined the effect of pre- and postoperative care management on weight loss following bariatric surgery. It found no statistically significant associations between either preoperative or postoperative care management intensity and postoperative change in body mass index at year 1 or year 2. Results were limited by heterogeneity of care management across sites and an inability to assess adherence to care management programs.
