  1. Abbreviations: APRDRG All Patients Refined Diagnosis Related Group, MSDRG Medicare Severity-Diagnosis Related Group
  2. aBold values are statistically significant at P<.05. Odds ratios greater than 1 imply increased chance for behavior; less than 1 imply decreased chance for behavior
  3. bPredictors for adoption: age, sex, race, marital status, employment status, income, health insurance type, and frequency of hospitalizations
  4. cPredictors for active inpatient use: age, race, marital status, geographic area of residence, APRDRG weight, and MSDRG type
  5. dVariables related to the hospital admission were not examined among adopters as the adoption behavior was established prior to admission
