Slope before EMR
Slope after EMR
Slope represents the odds ratio per quarter.
Slope difference was defined by subtracting the slope “after EMR” from the slope “before EMR.”
The “before EMR” slope includes 8 quarters before EMR adoption and the “after EMR” slope includes 12 quarters after EMR adoption.
All outcomes were adjusted by patient (gender, age and race) and disease characteristics (DRG weight and comorbidities).
