Abstract
PURPOSE: To evaluate and explain why some patients report more difficulties performing everyday activities 6 months after a cataract extraction than they did before surgery. SETTING: Cataract surgeons from 4 departments of ophthalmology affiliated with the National Swedish Cataract Outcome Register. METHODS: Patients were recruited from those having cataract extraction during March 1995, 1996, or 1997 at the participating units. Only patients who completed Catquest questionnaires before and after surgery and were evaluated to have a "no-benefit" outcome were included. The no-benefit outcomes were analyzed by using medical records and surgeon opinions. Possible and/or probable reasons for the outcome were identified. RESULTS: Several possible and/or probable reasons were identified as a single reason or combined with other reasons. The 5 most frequent reasons were ocular co-morbidity in the operative eye, anisometropia after surgery, problems with the nonoperative eye during follow-up, low disability score sum before surgery (no difficulties), and postoperative complications. CONCLUSION: In about a third of the cases, the no-benefit outcome could probably have been avoided by better planning for both eyes; that is, both eyes should have surgery within a short time and waiting for second-eye surgery in cases with anisometropia should be avoided.

Abstract
The Federation of Swedish County Councils and six medical specialties are working together in a project aiming to support and stimulate the development of patient based case registers as a tool to follow up, evaluate, develop and manage medical units. The project is based on participation on the part of the medical professions in a process-oriented way. Each case register shall be based on the individual patient, and will integrate inpatient and outpatient care, all medical professions and important procedures. In hematology the project also seeks to merge case costing data with the patient based case registers in order to facilitate more comprehensive cost analysis and comparison. This episodic perspective is useful for providers per se as well as in discussions between purchasers and providers as a method for understanding and analyzing medical services. The six specialties are hematology, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, dermatology and sexually transmitted diseases, and lastly psychiatry.
