Table 4 Association Between Patient Outcomes and Portal Behaviors: Results From Regression Models

From: Patient portal adoption and use by hospitalized cancer patients: a retrospective study of its impact on adverse events, utilization, and patient satisfaction

  Independent Variables
Active Inpatient Users vs Nonadopters Inactive inpatient Users vs Nonadopters
Dependent Variablesa OR (95% CI) P value OR (95% CI) P value
 [adverse events = yes] 0.76 (0.40, 1.45) .41 0.71 (0.44–1.16) .17
 [emergency visits = yes] 1.28 (0.97, 1.70) .08 1.23 (1.00–1.51) .08
 [readmissions = yes] 1.60 (1.23, 2.08) <.01 1.21 (0.99–1.48) .06
Dependent Variablesa Beta Coefficient P value Beta Coefficient P value
 Self-health management knowledge 2.18 .07 1.15 .17
 Overall hospital experience 0.16 .83 0.28 .60
  1. aFive regression models were conducted adjusting for age and disease severity. Logistic regression was used for adverse events, emergency visits, and readmissions. Linear regression was used for self-health management knowledge and overall hospital experience scores
